KTLA, one of my local television stations, is reporting news of death threats against Jerry Brown, my governor, that police are calling “terrorist threats.” They were scrawled in graffiti on walls in Orange County, California:
The messages were discovered Thursday afternoon spray painted on walls near two Santa Ana School and included a swastika along with the words “We gonna kill Gov. Jerry Brown 2/14/11.”
Happy Valentines Day.
The police, highway patrol and The Orange County Intelligence Assessment Center, which handles threats to government officials in addition to terrorist activities, were all notified.
They are taking this very seriously, officials said, in light of the Arizona shootings as well as several recent local incidents.
Sigh. Another day, another violent threat against a Democratic political figure.
