BREWSTER The woman who allegedly mailed a hoax weapon of mass destruction package to State Senator Gregory Balls regional office last month has been shot and killed by police in Georgia, a spokeswoman for Balls office said Monday. He is the chairman of the state Senates Homeland Security Committee.
Ball spokeswoman Brittany Oat said Jameela Barnette was killed on Christmas day when a police officer for the Cobb county Police responded to the Bexley Apartments in Marietta and was assaulted by Barnette shortly after he opened the door.
Officer shot the woman, later identified as Barnette, who died at the scene, police said.
She was armed with a knife and gun, police said.
According to the FBI in Atlanta, Barnette was arrested and indicted on federal charges last month for her role in mailing the hoax weapons of mass destruction package to Balls office. The package wound up containing perfume.
Barnette allegedly sent a package with pigs feet to Congressman Peter Kings Office. He is chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee.
was assaulted by Barnette shortly after he opened the door. .............................. This is a new revelation that the cop opened the door. Did he break it down or what??? Too many questions on this incident!
Sounds like he broke in and found himself looking at a weapon.
Let's face it ... We're now living in a police state.
he opened the door?
In April, Jameela Barnette, 53, mailed a vial of perfume, a hateful letter and a stuffed monkey with a star of David on it to New York state Sen Greg Ball, because she believed he was biased against her Islamic faith.
She also sent a bloody pig's foot and an anti-Semitic letter to Rep Peter King because he was hosting Congressional hearings about 'radicalization' in the American Muslim community.
Yup, before, the story was that she greeted him at the door when she opened it.
Including: "Interestingly, Mrs. Barnette says that she used to be Jewish. She says that she attended Ohr Hatorah Synagogue in the Los Angeles area when she lived in California. After reading the Quran, she became convinced that it represented absolute truth. She says that both of her daughters still practice Judaism. Mrs. Barnette now believes the words of the Quran when it says that Jews were transformed by Allah into monkeys and swine (Surah 5:60)."
All in all, I'd say the world is a better place without her.
Barnette doesnt exactly sound level headed, but the “professional” cop sounds like a cold blooded killer.
Her poor daughters. I cannot imagine having to deal with a mother who called Jews swine, while I was practicing Judaism. What trials they must have endured.
Yeah, just kill anyone that appears to be a little nuts, thats the ticket.
Maybe, but you can't prove it from this incident.
On Saturday, police were called to Barnette's apartment by a panic alarm. When an officer arrived, police say, Barnette attacked him with a knife and a handgun.
This is a horribly written article and doesn’t contain the information from other news sources. From what I gathered, she hit a panic alarm button for her apartment building and she was the one who opened the door when police arrived (she was armed with a knife and gun).
The package Sen Ball received included a Curious George stuffed monkey with two stars of David taped to it, along with a note that said ‘FINAL DESTINATION: AUSCHWITZ.’
She told the Lower Hudson Journal News that she sent the monkey because: ‘I knew the Jews were behind the hearings. A monkey is a representation of who the Jews are.’
Rep King’s letter also contained anti-Semitic tirades and references to him being a Jew — even though he’s Catholic.
The letter reported ended with the phrase, ‘kiss my black, Muslim-American a**.’
I wonder why the Feds didn’t bigfoot this...
IOW, why were the locals conducting the raid?
What ever happened, I don’t think “Greeting” was involved.
That attacks you with a gun (as well as knife - the officer was cut). Yeah, that IS the ticket. BTW, did you get so far into the story to read that part?
You know the ol gal does sound a little nuts, but hey, I have seen more radical things posted here on FR! That charge of WMD’s is a real stretch of the immagination.
“She also sent a bloody pig’s foot”
Stop! You’re makin’ me hungry, and it’s not lunchtime yet!
PIGS foot?... ISLAM????
Have we been wrong all this time??
