A 23-year-old Army National Guard member admitted to planting a note on his own car threatening to kill not only him, but other American troops, WSB-TV reported on Monday.

Authorities in Cobb County, Georgia charged Brett Downing, listed as an information technology specialist, with filing a false police report. No motive has been identified for his alleged actions.

According to WSB, the note was originally found on Downing’s windshield outside of his job at a local office building less than a week after the fatal shooting of five service members in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

“Dear amercian [sic] soldier, death to you coward women child killer and all the amercian [sic] military,” the note read. “Mohammad will show no mercy on you attacks will come full force death is to come to you.”

A picture of the note was distributed in several military-related group pages on Facebook. But WSB reported that detectives conducted a second interview with Downing after the note’s discovery, leading to him admitting to typing the letter.

It appears neither Loeffler nor her staff thought to google who Attila the Hun was and why associating yourself with him could be a public relations disaster.

Among the things the History Channel remembers about Attila, was that he killed his own brother to ensure absolute power. He invaded Gaul in an attempt to score a wife. He also had a "legendary lust for gold."

These Florida Cuban-American voters are flipping their support from Trump to Biden: ‘I know what a dictator looks like’

Published

In recent weeks, there has been a great deal of reporting on President Donald Trump’s efforts to make inroads with Latino voters. But it’s important to note where most of those inroads have been made: Trump has generally fared much better among Cuban-Americans in Florida than among Mexican-Americans in western states or Puerto Ricans in New York City, Boston and Philadelphia.
