Graffiti Threatens Jerry Brown’s Life ~ Santa Ana

Okay, okay, maybe not all graffiti is good graffiti. There's some dude that writes crazy Bible stuff in messy red letters on a wall in the alley behind our apartment that freaks the shit out of us much more than the occasional trece placas that pop-up. Over in Santa Ana, police and the team in charge of protecting Gov. Jerry Brown's butt are in a tizzy over two walls spray-painted with threats to kill Jerry Brown on Valentine's Day. The L.A. Times shows one of the messages, which comes right out and says, "We gonna kill Gov. Brown 2/14/11" and another says "26 more days for Brown" (don't you hate a blatant lack of subtlety and style in people's work?). The authorities are considering this a terrorist threat and probing links to earlier graffiti in the area that threatened Catholics. Of course, the second message comes with a swastika and like most racist graffiti we've seen, the writer can't even get that right, with the symbol positioned backwards. The work of a determined terrorist or just another dumb-ass? You decide!
