Death threatening psycho ARRESTED
 
Sorry for spamming a bit about it, but the first thread was closed.

I have no source for it yet, but a bunch of people on my twitter are talking about this. Non of them are absolutely reliable but since multiple people have heard the same info I guess it's true. As soon as there is confirmation I'll post.
It seems the guy apologized or whatever.

Is this a Chinese affairs forum?

This guy shouldn't get any more attention. Celebrities get death threats a lot, but it rightfully almost never makes the media.

I wait until something official is said because clearly in such a situation there can be false rumours.

First I think you're wrong : it doesn't happen that often. Why do I think that ? The Swiss police were questioned about how they would deal with such a situation and they said they just had never met such a situation (in an article today), all they know is people who are threatened by other people they know ; besides, in such a situation, probably celebrities would get higher protection and then I guess that would usually be known.

As for you, how do you "know" that "celebrities get death threats a lot ?"

Secondly the reason why it made the media is very simple and clear : the Chinese police were cautious and the public is forbidden for his training sessions and he will not sign autographs. What do you think people would have thought if the organizers had not said the situation ?

As for the media, clearly the English-speaking media were more cautious to spread that information : it was in the Swiss media much before. I don't know if that's the way they want to deal with such situations not make publicity to the crazy guy, maybe, I don't know.

Report: Roger Federer receives death threat in Shanghai

11:40PM EST October 4. 2012 - Security was tightened around Roger Federer after the world No. 1 received an online death threat prior to a tournament in Shanghai, according to various reports.

Tournament director Yang Yibin confirmed the threat to the Shanghai Youth Daily. An anonymous poster using the name "Blue Cat Polytheistic Religion Founder 07" posted the threat on the popular Chinese website, Baidu.com. "On October 6, I plan to assassinate Federer for the purpose of tennis extermination," the posting read.

The threat was accompanied by a doctored photo of a axe-wielding executioner standing next to a decapitated Federer. The posting was taken seriously enough for the tournament to increase security around Federer and other players, but Yang told the newspaper he hopes it "was an oral threat only."
