SALEM – Officials say threats against police and public officials that started within hours of the Jan. 26 death of ranching standoff leader Robert “LaVoy” Finicum have continued.
One anonymous caller threatened to kill Gov. Kate Brown the day after Finicum died. Earlier this month, authorities documented up to 80 threats against police officers and others, according to the Oregonian.
“We’re going to shoot to kill,” one anonymous caller said in a message left for Brown.
“You killed an unarmed rancher, so now one of you must die,” said another caller to her office.
