WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A Wichita man who suggested attacking the Sedgwick County Courthouse as a murder trial was ending was placed on probation.

The Wichita Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1HEP1VR ) Samuel McCrory was also ordered Tuesday to complete anger management classes and to surrender his firearms.

McCrory pleaded guilty in October to one count of criminal threat and three counts of criminal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon,

Authorities say he posted comments on Facebook asking if it was “out of line to storm the courthouse” and saying the “only way to defend yourself from a cop is to kill the cop.”

McCrory also drew attention when he was seen carrying an assault rifle and other weapons at protests and other events in downtown Wichita in the year before his arrest.
