Sam Koivisto, now a former Jacksonville police officer, told investigators he did comment he'd volunteer to kill President Barack Obama. He told them he was frustrated with the Nov. 6 election and the threat was all talk.

Koivisto, 57, retired last week rather than face an investigation into the comments he made after Obama's re-election.
