MARIETTA A Marietta woman who was accused of sending threatening packages to lawmakers was shot and killed after attacking a Cobb Police officer Christmas morning, police said.
Using a knife and a handgun, Jameela Cecila Barnette, 53, assaulted an officer from the departments Precinct 3 who had knocked on her apartment door after responding to an alarm, Cobb Police spokesman Sgt. Dana Pierce said. Despite receiving injuries to his arm, Pierce said the officer, who is not being identified at this time, fired his service weapon to stop the assault.
The officer was treated and released at the scene, the Bexley apartment complex, 318 Penny Lane S.E. in Marietta, Pierce said. The officer has been placed on administrative leave.
The Precinct 3 uniformed officers were dispatched to the complex after an alarm came from the apartment just after 11 a.m. Sunday, Pierce said. They were notified that a second alarm, a more serious panic alarm, came in as they were arriving at the scene.

Kind of curious that this appears to be her set-up but she didn’t go out with all gun(s) blazing.
I’m very glad that this officer gets to go home to his family. This woman sounded nuttier than a fruitcake.
The Amish again......the peaceful “religion”
See Debbie Schlussel today on this topic.
I like Debbie’s rants, but she may not be posted on FR. Not sure why, but I hesitate to put out her links only for that reason.
I initially found the story from her Twitter feed. Thanks for posting her link though.
It sounds like it to me.
The two alarms going off makes me think she was in a panic and in paranoia when she lashed out at the police officer.
Thank goodness he’s going to be okay.
I do think she was a rabid Muslim sympathizer with an anger problem as well. If she was mentally ill she could have been over-come by a sense of religious persecution while in a psychotic state.
Crap! I wanted to name my kid Jameela! Now she’s gone and ruined it!
Why yes, Georgia, there is a Santa Claus. Guess Christmas was too depressing for this devout abeed. Good to hear the officers are safe. Well done . . .and she probably is by now.
Good riddance to another ROP adherent.
