Jason Hawes Threatening e-mail
In March 2005, Barry Clinton Eckstrom, 51, of Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, started to send threatening e-mails to Hawes, founder of TAPS. Hawes alerted the FBI in Providence. When the e-mails started to include threats against then-President George W. Bush, the Secret Service became involved.
Eckstrom also used Hawes’s name to send e-mails to some female members of TAPS, in which he threatened to rape and murder them. While under surveillance by federal agents, Eckstrom used a Bethel Park, Pennsylvania library computer to send an e-mail in Hawes’ name to Roto Rooter’s Cincinnati headquarters, threatening to shoot employees there.
Next, Eckstrom typed a message threatening to kill President Bush, again in Hawes’ name, using the Department of Homeland Security’s website. Before he could send the message, he was arrested. Because of these activities, Eckstrom was sentenced to two years in federal prison in January 2006.
