  3. 3. Making Predictions <ul><li>“ Man arrested over phone threat against Bush” </li></ul>LOS ANGELES – A man was arrested after making a threat on the president's life last week during a phone conversation with a former girlfriend, who called 911, authorities said. A bail hearing was scheduled Monday for Charles Madrid, a 50-year-old radio technician who allegedly threatened President Bush's life. &quot;Committing this murder is not a murder, it's making a difference for the people,&quot; court papers say the former girlfriend, Wanda O'Hickey-Way, quoted Madrid as saying. &quot;I'm going to kill who needs to be killed.'' According to an affidavit, LAPD officers arrived at his home Tuesday, and one asked Madrid, &quot;Do you want to kill the president?'’ &quot;Yes,&quot; Madrid replied. He was charged with knowingly and willfully threatening to take the life of the president. Madrid lives with his mother, Rachel Madrid-Hall. She conceded Madrid has a temper, but said &quot;he's not a maniac. I think he was speaking out of frustration.'' She said he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis two years ago, his job at a radio station was cut back to part time and his bicycle – his only means of transportation – recently was stolen off the front porch. &quot;Sometimes life just kicks you in the teeth,&quot; Madrid-Hall said. She said her son blamed President Bush for the war in Iraq and the bad economy, among other things.
