Jameela Barnette and Dustin Hoffman during happier days
The woman was a real nut-job, who, after spotting a Tundra Tabloids’ piece on Rep.King receiving a pig’s foot from her attached with a racist rant, left a comment to the same post. The TT forwarded that comment to the FBI the same day as well as the IP address which showed that it originated from Marietta Georgia.
Special thank to commenter, POTB, for the heads up about her being killed by a police officer, thankfully she wasn’t successful in trying to kill him, and won’t be around to inflict any more trouble in the future. KGS
Georgia woman who threatened 2 New York lawmakers is shot to death by cop
Jameela Barnette targeted Rep. Pete King & state Sen. Greg Ball
A Muslim woman who had been charged with sending fake weapons and a pig’s foot to two New York lawmakers was killed during a struggle with a cop in Georgia on Sunday, authorities said.
Jameela Barnette, 53, of Marietta, was slapped with federal charges last month for sending New York State Sen. Greg Ball (R,C-Patterson) a vial of perfume, a hate-filled letter and a doll of the monkey Curious George wearing two Stars of David.
She had also mailed a pig’s foot to Rep. Peter King (R-L.I.) in response to controversial hearings he held in March on the purported radicalization of American Muslims, Politico has reported.
A spokesman for Cobb County Police said an armed Barnette was shot to death after officers responded to a panic alarm she activated at her apartment at 11 a.m. Christmas Day.
When the cops arrived, Barnette opened the door while wielding a knife and a handgun and assaulted an officer with the blade, the spokesman said.
The unnamed officer shot her, killing Barnette at the scene, police said.
“Despite receiving injuries to his arm, the officer was able to use his service weapon to stop the assault,” the spokesman said.
