DePetro told police the men made "...threats to his employment and his well being," as reported by Philip Marcel for Providencejournal.com.
A police spokesman said the men were angered by previous comments made by DePetro about a union protest outside a fundraiser for the state General Treasurer, Gina Raimondo. DePetro referred to the protestors as "parasites." He went on to say, "...You are cockroaches. You lie. You are union hags. There's another word I'd like to use ... it begins with a W. and an H. and an O. and an R. and an E. and an S..."

Huckabee also said in his post, "I have opportunities in some other areas that cannot be accomplished given the 8-9 hours a day I was devoting to the daily long form show." Many of the comments posted by his Facebook followers wondered if this was more in preparation for a second run for President:
"I hate to hear this unless it's because you are planning a run for President." - Curt
"Can't do a radio show and be president at the same time! Go Mike!" - Freda
"Oh, PLEASE say you are going to run for President..." - Jonnie
Huckabee will still continue The Huckabee Report, three short daily commentaries that are nationally syndicated to hundreds of radio stations.
