Residents of Sacramento, Calif., are trying to figure out who is behind a terrifying and threatening letter targeting minorities that was left on car windows. The letter, signed by a well-known white supremacist, calls for the kidnapping, robbing, torturing and execution of all Muslims and Latinos.
Residents of Sacramento received an unwanted gift under their car windshield wipers on May 3: This racist call to war.

Although the Sacramento police have stated that this “deplorable and despicable” language is protected speech, they are still investigating the matter and are looking for any law that might have been broken in the distribution of the hate-filled message.
According to the hateful letter, all “peaceful legal remedies” to end the “genocide of white people by both Islam and Mexico” have been exhausted.
But things get even darker, more terrifying and infuriating when you read one particular line.

“If you have not secured a body-dump site, do so now! Kidnap, rob, torture for information and execute all Muslims and Latinos. Leave no survivors,” reads the letter.
Sacramento residents are not happy about the fliers at all.
Today Greg Withrow, infamous racist/nazi sympathizer, left this on my cousins car. She is both Mexican & Jewish. pic.twitter.com/9kHYVopcia

“I’ve been living here six years, we have all kinds of crazy, but this is a different level of crazy,” Denise Calderon, a community activist, told The Sacramento Bee. “It makes me very angry because this was left overnight, so our kids saw this before going to school.”
^^ Every Muslim and Latino reaction when hearing of this letter. 😡 The Sacramento police are currently investigating the issue and are looking to locate the person responsible for the letters.
The letter was signed with the name of Greg Withrow, a white supremacist with a long history of doing crazy things to further his cause. In 2005, Withrow tried to crucify himself twice as a means to protest the Iraq War, and to demand that white supremacists be released from prison, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization that tracks and hate groups. Still, as previously mentioned, the authorities don’t know who was responsible for the letters.
