A California man has been indicted by an Atlanta grand jury on charges of threatening Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D), according to a Friday press release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Georgia.

Marc Shultz, 66, of Chula Vista, Calif., reportedly made the threats due to Wills’ prosecution of former President Trump.

In October of last year, Shultz “allegedly posted multiple comments to two separate YouTube live stream videos” that “threatened District Attorney Willis with violence and murder including a statement that she ‘will be killed like a dog,” per Buchanan, Shultz’ indictment and “other information presented in court,” the press release said.

“Threats against any individual, credible or not, is a very serious crime that the FBI will not tolerate,” Special Agent in Charge of FBI Atlanta Keri Farley said in the release. “Threats of violence against government officials, specifically, threaten the very fabric of our democracy.  We want everyone to know that if you engage in such behavior, you will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law.”

Willis thanked “U.S. Attorney Ryan Buchanan, his staff and the FBI for believing the life of an African American elected official has value and for their diligent efforts in ensuring the safety of myself, my staff, and our families” in a statement, according to Fox5 Atlanta.

  1. It’s alarming how some individuals think it’s acceptable to resort to threats and violence to express their disapproval. The justice system is meant to provide accountability, not intimidation. We must stand united against such behavior to protect our democracy.
