  • Is it a crime in America to say to a person . . .

    "I want to kill you!" or, "I'm going to kill you!" ?

    yes..if you mean it, it is a death threat.
    "We are currently experiencing some technical difficulties due to reality fluctuations. The elves are working tirelessly to patch the correct version of reality. Activities here have been temporarily disabled since the fundamentals of mathematics, physics and reason may be incomprehensible during this indeterminate period of instability. Normal service will be restored once we are certain as to what 'normal' is."

    Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally used up and worn out, shouting '...man, what a ride!'

      Then daddymack, if I were to rephrase it and say:

      "I want to kill you, and that's not a threat, it's a promise!"

      So this statement is making it clear the intent is not threatening but promissory. And this statement is made because someone is very pissed off at the person this statement is directed to.

        still a threat until you act on it.

          You can't say what is a crime "In America" because each state has it's own laws. Federally controlled media, like the mail, is "in America". As far as I know, each state has laws against death threats.
