Smith is allegedly a meth-fueled wannabe samurai.
Glenn Smith went a little bit crazy on Monday when his girlfriend deleted his meth dealers' numbers from his cell phone, police say.

At one point during a possibly meth-fueled rampage, Smith's girlfriend found him sharpening his samurai sword on a grinder in their Vadnais Heights garage. "Want me to cut your head off?" Smith said, according to his girlfriend's account of the incident.

During a 17-minute 911 call, the police dispatcher could hear Smith, 50, screaming and using a baseball bat to smash things in the apartment he shared with his girlfriend.

Smith also threatened to "shoot the cops" when they arrived, and destroyed a laptop owned by his girlfriend's 10-year-old son, advising him to "grow up, get a job, and become a man," the criminal complaint says. That'd be solid advice if the kid wasn't, you know, 10 years old.

The woman and her son escaped when Ramsey County deputies arrived.

Smith's account of the incident? He told police he was indeed upset about the deleted numbers, but denied they belonged to meth dealers. He said one deleted number belonged to a work contact, the other to another woman he's seeing.

Smith is currently in Ramsey County Jail and has been charged with two counts of making terroristic threats.

WTF is a terroristic threat? Or, to put it another way, how can anything be a threat if it isn't terroristic? Making threats is bad and he should be punished for that, but when they attach the word "terrorist" to a crime just to get an additional emotional response it makes me angry.

I love how his alibi for one of the deleted numbers was another girl he was seeing on the side.  Timeless and classy.  Yup.

Where is Decievious Leroy Johnston Jr. with his racist commentary about how another white meth-head is ruining society with the typical actions of white people??

TERRORISTIC THREAT(a) A person commits an offense if he threatens to commit any offense involving violence to any person or property with intent to:place any person in fear of imminent serious bodily injury... etc..

Um, how does that NOT apply to him and how he terrorized his family and threatened them with violence/death?

More "diversity"!

How does that definition not apply just as easily to the word "Threat"? I'm not arguing that he didn't threaten them. I'm not arguing that he shouldn't be punished for it. I'm arguing that all threats are terroristic and therefore saying "terroristic threat" is unnecessary. It's a head game.
