A man has allegedly threatened to shoot up The Dallas Express, naming specific floors of the publication’s office building as well as directly targeting certain employees and their small children.
Over the weekend, The Dallas Express received nearly a dozen different threats of violence ranging from gunning down staff at the office to physically mutilating figures associated with the organization.
One of the messages addressed to a specific person within the company threatened, “You better protect your family with armed guards.” Another email following it up a minute later read, “I wonder where your children sleep. What would you do if someone found out? Do you feel safe? Do you think they are safe?”
An additional message more directly suggested, “You are going to die.” The individual then added, “Your children, and, all of those you hold dear will die.”
Responding to an article addressing the increase in certain Dallas crime statistics, the person further wrote, “If you want to see an increase in crime: wait for me on Christmas Eve! If I don’t catch you and your beautiful family, maybe I’ll see y’all on New Year’s Day. Maybe on Valentine’s Day.”
Another email asked, “How badly do you want someone to hunt and slaughter you and your family?”
The emails’ author, responding to a newsletter regarding the parolee who recently shot two hospital employees in Dallas, asked, “I wonder how you would handle a violent parolee with a gun in your building … would it be more concerning if an armed shooter was on [your] floor?”
These threats were reported to the police and the FBI, and The Dallas Express office is taking measures to protect its staff.
Commenting on the violent language and threats, Monty Bennett, publisher of The Dallas Express, said, “It’s so sad. The Dallas Express is a non-partisan, non-profit news organization that just wants to help our great city. You will not find a more unbiased source of news in town. The amount of raw hate out there is an unfortunate sign of our times.
“However, The Dallas Express staff will not be bullied and deterred from printing the truth … and holding our local government to account. Unfortunately, years ago, news organizations got into bed with corporate sponsors and government; now the news is corrupted. The Dallas Express will never follow that path.”
That goes to show. There is no God in the life these people who hate. They are lost souls.
From the contents of these messages, it appears the author/s are not very bright.
DEPENDS They may have the protection of the office the articles are attacking. Might even be THEM.
Totally unacceptable and totally unnecessary to treat each other like this. No love toward fellow men what so ever! We have really abandon GOD and the Bible.
Hopefully the authorities will find out who sent these messages and arrest them swiftly.
This has been going on for years. God had told us what we need to do.
Read the Ten Commandments, it’s all there.
Strap up and be alert.
What an Moran.
Shooting up an office or people will not change the heart, that is a God matter.
Put him/her in jail please….
Spoken Iike true Democrats
Spoken like true MAGA Republicans
Spoken like a true moron
With this many contacts, this guy should be able to be found within a few hours. Too many bread crumbs.
Make sure that you are represented by attorney at the bail hearing. Have your attorney petition in writing to address the bail hearing. Ask in court that bail not be allowed or that it be in excess of 2 million (200,000 cash bond with assets of 2 M required) plus full time ankle monitor.
Also, I believe that the FBI should make the arrest AND the state separately. There are MANY laws of each violated. Follow up with stories about your contacts and responses of both FBI and local/state LEO and the courts. the people need to know.
What rock have you been living under….this is a conservative publication, not protected by our current LEO’s at ANY level. In fact these articles bringing on this HATE are exposing the LEO’s
Keep up the good work and journalistic integrity The Dallas Express staff and family, we are praying for your safety.
if you live by the pen, you’ll die by the pen!
Thank you guys for doing what you do. Sometimes shining the light on the rats is a dirty business and the DMN got out of that business a while ago. Sounds like you’ve picked up a not-too-bright meth-driven little freak who wants to threaten someone. The FBI catches them over 90% of the time and, ironically, they squeal like little pigs when the handcuffs go on.
Some sicknesses can’t be cured.
Praying for all of you at Dallas Express! Take care and be safe.
The BEST newspaper Dallas has ever had. Keep doing your good, non-biased work. The messages probably come from someone at The Dallas Morning News, which has promoted hate and extreme leftist agendas for too long. The Dallas Express is putting the DMN out of business. Don’t be deterred.
It’s sad that someone would threaten to shoot people over the utter nonsense this rag publishes. I’ve read more realistic fan fiction.
I will take issue with this rag calling itself unbiased. The owner attended the party on Jan 6 in DC with the rest of those traitors.
Move along Mr. Bill, comments like this are unnecessary, and contribute to the actions of crazy liberals who can’t handle hearing the other side.
This Damn paper is worse than the GD Keep Dallas Safe misinformation web site.
To the DX staff: Looks like you now have a couple of leads to forward to the LEO.
I hope your staff is taking measures on their own as well as collective measures. I know not everyone is comfortable carrying personal protection, but the times we are in and the malice in those messages necessitate a first response. I’d like to encourage you to please contact USCCA and share the nature of these threats, they can put you in contact with various instructors and resources to help keep your staff and their families safe.
Stay strong, we have some sick people out here. You speak the truth, this is not Chicago and that’s what weak people are spreading.
This is DFW and we need to cleanup our own State.
I am saddened to hear that there are such sick people among us.There is not much difference between people like this and those actually committing the crime of violence. There is no place in society for this type of mentality. It is time our District Attorneys support swift apprehension followed by fast severe conviction.
That’s how Democrats do things. This person knows who he/she is threatening, but won’t reveal his/her identity. Probably coming from the Commissioners Court.
No one should threaten anyone with violence, ever. But you guys are very partisan. lol You actually use Trump in your ads lolz
Yet another attempt by unhinged radicals who would rather do harm to innocent people than accept God into their lives. Satan is very much alive on planet earth. God protect everyone at The Dallas Express. God bless for the accurate news you provide.
“Monty Bennett, publisher of The Dallas Express, said, “It’s so sad. The Dallas Express is a non-partisan, non-profit news organization that just wants to help our great city.”
Not that this matters, but the Dallas Express is hardly “non-partisan.” Regardless, death threats from ANYONE should NEVER BE TOLERATED. I hope the police can track down these people.
“non-partisan” = doesn’t follow big pharma, intelligence community, big tech, military industrial complex, globalist elite money laundering dictates on what is acceptable to publish.
Kuddo to you guys for holding your ground. Never cave to the Woke.
Why are so many making this out to be political? Sounds to me like someone who is mentally deranged and needs professional help as well as a all expenses paid vacation to the Iron Bars Inn
Prayers of protection & peace to you all over at The Dallas Express. Much gratitude to you for bringing real news, not mess that was handed to you in a script to work with agendas. Whoever is doing this is likely one upset over the article about Judge Clay Jenkins
This is sad.
Hold your ground and be ever watchful. I am impressed!
If Only the Washington Post reported this story,
Instant protection. I guarantee it.
They’re not afraid to make those threats because they know how lenient the justice system is, especially toward the violent left. It way past the time that we made them afraid.
This is what happens when you expose dirty politicians and corrupt government
