Death threats made against New York's wealthy

If this had been a Tea Partier, it would have gotten 24/7 coverage from every news outlet from here to Bangkok. Because it seems to reflect the position of the Occupy Wall Street crowd, there is no real threat the big three will ever cover it.....probably not even if someone actually gets shot.

Several influential New York state lawmakers have received threatening mails saying it is “time to kill the wealthy” if they don’t renew the state’s tax surcharge on millionaires, according to reports.

“It’s time to tax the millionaires!” reads the email, according to WTEN in Albany. “If you don’t, I’m going to pay a visit with my carbine to one of those tech companies you are so proud of and shoot every spoiled Ivy League [expletive] I can find.”

The email seems extremely specific and detailed in the actions they will take if the surcharge is not renewed. At one point the writer goes on to say the will launch a "liquor bottle full of flaming gasoline thru their nice picture window into their cute house,”.

It's refreshing in this time of a "new tone" that death threats to individuals and their families are still a time honored tradition amongst the left.
