More prison time for man who plans to eat Obama

    Already in prison, Gregory Dale Brockman was sentenced to more time yesterday when he admitted he plans to carry out plans to eat President Barack Obama if released.

    Brockman, who is serving time in a Chester prison, has very specific plans — detailed yesterday in the Inquirer —  for the president, First Lady Michelle Obama, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former President George W. Bush.

    The Inky also gets bonus points for its tweet of the story, which Health & Science reporter Carolyn Beeler found this morning: “Inmate’s plans to kill and eat Obama is delayed 5 years.”

    Brockman got five years tacked onto his current three-year sentence, plus five for a threat made against Bush in 2008. Those terms wil be served consecutively.
