Death Threats Received in White Supremacy Terror Trial
Central figures in the prosecution of the American Front white supremacy group have received death threats on several websites in recent weeks.
Family members of Orange-Osceola State Attorney Lawson Lamar, Circuit Judge Walter Komanski and an agent assigned to the FBIJoint Terrorism Task Force are named in the detailed threats demanding the immediate release of more than a dozen American Front members arrested last month.
The deadline passed in late May without any known acts of violence.
“We are at your houses, we are at your kids houses we are your grandkids houses and we are sitting outside their schools,” it reads in part. “Don’t believe me? Here you are pigs, here you are:… we are going to CUT THEIR …HEADS OFF and leave them in A COOLER OUTSIDE YOUR OFFICE.”
The anonymous writer included what were claimed to be the unlisted home addresses of Lamar, Komanski and JTTF Agent Kelly Boaz.
“We are aware of the threats and there is an active federal investigation,” FBI spokesman Dave Couvertier said Friday afternoon. “We always address these threats with the utmost seriousness.”
