Graffiti on Santa Ana wall threatens governor and president

Graffiti threatening Gov. Jerry Brown and President Obama was discovered Monday on a wall on a busy Santa Ana street, the latest in a spate of similar acts targeting public officials and ethnic and religious groups.

The spray-painted messages were reported just after 7 a.m. in the 3200 block of Greenville Street, near Alton Avenue. Similar threats were scrawled nearby last month.

The messages included racial slurs and stated that both men will “soon die.”

The U.S. Secret Service was notified, as well as the California Highway Patrol, which provides security for the governor, said Santa Ana Police Cmdr. Tammy Franks. No suspects have been identified.
 
In January, death threats against Brown as well as swastikas and other racist messages targeting blacks, Mexicans and Asians were found on buildings and churches in Anaheim, Brea, Irvine and Santa Ana.

On Feb. 14, Anaheim police arrested Kim Rebar Henry, a 56-year-old Fullerton woman, on suspicion of spray-painting hateful graffiti in that city.
 
Authorities are trying to determine if any of the incidents are connected.

And the right wingers consider consider us liberals "loons." Yeah, right.

Call the Secret Service? Seriously? As far as I know, no political assassin or even would-be assassin ever made a public threat.

a 56 year old woman??!!? oh brother!!

Was Kim Henry out on bail? She'd be my first choice.
