President, Governor Threatened In SoCal Graffiti

SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities are investigating graffiti messages threatening President Barack Obama and Governor Jerry Brown in an Orange County city near where threats to the governor were scrawled last month.

   Santa Ana police Cmdr. Steve Colon says the spray-painted messages found Monday morning stated that both men “must die.” The president was identified using a racist slur.

   Colon says swastikas and anti-Semitic and anti-Mexican slogans were spray-painted nearby.

   The graffiti was within a mile of the wall where death threats against Brown were spotted on Jan. 20.

   Colon says police and California Highway Patrol officials are investigating the graffiti and that the U.S. Secret Service has been notified.

    Jerry Brown is the best govenor California has had in a long time. The graffiti looks like the work of simple minded drunks that don’t know a good govenor when they see one. Stake out the nearest liquor store look for bald headed white guy with spray paint on his pants.

      I wouldn’t let a group of cowards get me hyped up. Hell, if any stuff goes down they’re always the first ones running for the Guv-ment to protect them! When the Race war comes -these guys’ll be running. trust me!

    Until the Washington Redskins change their name I don’t give a damn what another race is called. You’re all racists who only complain about racism only if it’s directed at a black person. If it’s directed at a Native American it’s celebrated. Just another example of hypocrisy in our country.

      Very true! The Native Americans have been asking the NFL and Gov’t for years to change the name of Red Skins, obviously the money and the sport appear to be more important to the “White Man” than what the insulting term Red Skins mean. Shame on US.
