CASUAlTiES of ll-ll-ll

Schlake found this disturbing letter sent to the Socorro City police department in an appropriately titled article in the El Defensor Chieftain, "Disturbing letter sent to police department". The author warns "the CORRUPt DEVilS" that, on Friday, November 11, 2011, he will direct his wrath upon the people of Socorro, and that "PlENTY OF PARASiTES Will JOin" him.  Of course, the CASUAltiES are scheduled for 11-11-11, or as we call it here in lowercase L, ll-ll-ll.  Perhaps just as disturbing as the threat itself is the author's dysgraphic writing style, mixing upper and lowercase letters, though props for at least making the lowercase L's slightly taller than the other uppercase letters, and using lowercase i's to help distinguish the lowercase L's.  I hope the authorities find the person who would commit such atrocities and put him behind bars.  Also to prevent him from hurting anyone.

Huh, strange that he went for the 11-11-11... I would have thought 11-5-11 would have been a better choice, you know, tradition and all..

I guess that's probably an indicator that the author might be of lesser education, and it seems reasonable to surmise that the author is also a religious / superstitious person. Possibly someone who is disgruntled, and even quite possibly suffering from an anger disorder.. LOL! :)
