Getting Nasty: Homeland Security Official Warned with Decapitated Animal on His Porch

A senior Department of Homeland Security (DHS) official living in the Washington, DC area found a burnt and decapitated animal on his front porch. Due to increased threats, a DHS official warned employees to keep badges hidden from public, be careful with public conversations and censor their social media posts. They were also advised to keep doors and windows locked and to be aware of unexpected changes in their homes. Last week, WikiLeaks published publicly available personal information of more than 9,000 supposed current and former ICE employees, arguing that it did so for “increasing accountability.”

According to an official who is familiar with recent threats directed against the Department of Homeland Security, the department determined that there is now a “heightened threat against DHS employees.” The official said roughly two dozen threats have been made in the last few days.

One specific example: a senior DHS official living in the Washington, D.C. area found a burnt and decapitated animal on his front porch.

On Saturday, Claire Grady, acting deputy secretary of Homeland Security, wrote to employees, “This assessment is based on specific and credible threats that have been levied against certain DHS employees and a sharp increase in the overall number of general threats against DHS employees.” Her memo recommended not displaying work badges in public, being careful with public conversations and being circumspect on social networks. It also recommended DHS employees “always keep doors and windows locked” and “be aware of unexpected changes in and around your home.”
