Sen. Ball: Threats will not deter future terrorism hearings
State Sen. Greg Ball (R-Carmel) says that a suspicious package sent to his office, which contained a threatening letter and other items, will not deter him from holding future anti-terrorism meetings, contrary to the apparent desires of the package's sender.
Ball says that he is no stranger to being targeted because of the causes he fights for, adding that a dead goat was once left outside of his Putnam County home in March 2009.
Yesterday, a package containing a Curious George doll, a vial and a threatening note was sent to Ball's office. The sender was listed as one Jameela Barnette from Marietta, Ga., who accused Ball of a lack of political correctness after he held a hearing on anti-terrorism in Manhattan last week. Barnette said, in a letter, that Ball's hearing was equivalent to a declaration of war on Muslims.
