Law enforcement agencies are investigating a threatening letter that was sent to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg. The letter contained a death threat and a small amount of white powder, and was postmarked on Tuesday from Orlando, Florida. The FBI and NYPD are currently investigating the matter, as Bragg’s office is involved in the ongoing investigation into former President Donald Trump.
The threatening letter, which was addressed to Bragg, contained a message stating that the sender would kill him. Fortunately, the situation was immediately contained, and the NYPD Emergency Service Unit, along with the NYC Department of Environmental Protection, confirmed that the white powder was not dangerous.
The incident comes in the wake of Trump’s false announcement that he would be arrested in the investigation and his call for people to protest. Trump’s rhetoric has become increasingly heated, including warnings of “potential death and destruction” if he is indicted, on his social media website early Friday.
The authorities are taking the situation seriously, and it is important to note that such threats of violence are unacceptable and have no place in a civil society. It is crucial for individuals and communities to come together to denounce such behavior and to support law enforcement agencies in their efforts to investigate and prevent violent acts.
