SANTA ANA (CBS) —  Graffiti threatening Gov. Jerry Brown’s life was found in two places in Santa Ana Thursday, according to police.

Santa Ana police were called at 7 a.m. about threatening graffiti on Greenville Street north of Alton Avenue, Santa Ana police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna said.

The graffiti read, “We gonna kill Gov. Brown 2 14 11,” Bertagna said.

Between 2:15 p.m. and 2:30 p.m., a Santa Ana police officer saw more threatening graffiti at 1700 W. Segerstrom Ave., Bertagna said.

The vandal spray-painted in red, “27 more days 4 Brown” and included a swastika, Bertagna said, adding someone later painted over the red “7” with a black “6” as if it were a countdown.

“We don’t know if they’re related or not,” Bertagna said.

Santa Ana police alerted the California Highway Patrol, which protects the governor, Bertagna said. CHP investigators will take the lead in the investigation, he added.

All the graffiti has been taken down, Bertagna said.

“We’re taking this very seriously, of course, especially when they put out swastikas and threaten the governor, and with all that’s going on in Tucson we have to take this seriously,” Bertagna said.

There have been other incidents of graffiti vandalism in the area this month, including racist slurs against Asians and blacks spray painted on the walls of Orange County Housing Authority offices at 1170 N. Broadway, and “Kill the Cathlics” [sic] spray painted on St. Boniface Catholic Church at 120 N. Janss St. in Anaheim.

    I’d rather they go after pelosi, but any dead demokrat is a good demokrat. communist demokrats are bigger threats than any external enemy this country has ever faced.

    My money says LEFTIST Brown and/or his cronies are behind this ploy….anything to get sympathy AND CHANGE THE HEADLINES. Meanwhile California goes bankrupt and down the toilet…Brown has no clue how to fix problems…

    This is undoubtedly the work of liberals trying to pin it on conservative white people. The swastika gave it away and the statements about Asians, blacks and “cathlics” just enforced the idea of what kind of mind was at work here….Nice try but only other liberals will even believe that it was done by some kind of militia member. How many white people are even walking around the city of Los Angeles spraying graffiti? If they were they would be mugged or killed outright for invading gang territory.

    I wonder if the people who tagged it in the red are different from the ones who tagged in the black. I ones who tagged in the black seem to be more detail oriented. They thought ok so now it’s 26 days not 27, so we’ll just tag over the 6 and make 7. They also thought well since it is more then 1 day it should have an S at the end of day. They also put their little “sign” so we know who those smart people are. lol.
