The Knight Center for Journalists has a blog entry that sounds funny at first but is really quite serious: Radio journalists receive poorly written threat in Uruguay
Chief of Police Milton Rodríguez Tito confirmed the threat and added that the letter was poorly written with many grammatical errors. “We’re gunna clean up,” the letter read, listing the names of the police commissioner, five journalists, a judge, and a prosecutor
Just because the writer of the note has difficulty writing a coherent sentence doesn’t mean this person — and allies — can’t shoot a gun or wield a machete.
And yes, the Uruguayan authorities are taking the threat seriously.
