God help us. Let’s see if I have this straight—a man, 74 years old, who weighs 300 pounds, who can hardly walk on his own and is required to use a cane, often needs help in getting out of a chair, is a Leader in the Church of Latter Day Saints, is beloved by his neighbors as the neighborhood “Teddy Bear,” who is an accomplished woodworker and is the sole source of support for his adult, mentally challenged son (who recently suffered a stroke), but who made the certainly grave mistake of putting online clear threats against the President of the United States, is shot to death in an early morning raid by a SWAT team of dozens of FBI agents and a tank.

After viewing it, please refer me to the exact moment when these agents’ lives were in the slightest peril sufficient to justify gunning down this American citizen—and then leaving his blood-soaked body at the curb for two hours. Here’s one of the videos available online for your consideration:
Another, longer video, accessible within this Fox News report, is quite disturbing and appears to this listener, at least, to indicate that Robertson was yelling back at the agents or even perhaps sobbing or crying shortly before the shots were fired. Others may receive a different impression, obviously.
The Online Images and the Law Governing Threats to the President
The internet is swarming with images Robertson put on his Facebook page; here is a sample:
