The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is looking into an apparent death threat against state Sen. Eric Johnson and his family.
A Feb. 20 e-mail hurled profanities at Johnson for his opposition to a bill intended to free a man convicted of aggravated child molestation.
“The seekers of justice” added the missive, signed only with the initials D.A.R, “will be watching you and your family (as you leave church, work, school etc.) – you can’t hide and when you least expect it all you have come to know and love will vanish in a flash of blinding justice.”
Having received more than my fair share of death threats, I have a lot of empathy for those going through a situation like the Senator and his family are going through now. You’d think people advocating a cause would want to refrain from being caustic.
