Bounty issued over Pastor Terry Jones head
Gainesville Pastor Terry Jones is causing a stir again this time with target on his back. Hezzbollah has issued a $2.4 million-dollar bounty over the pastor’s head. Gainesville Police Department Public Information Officer, Tscharna Senn says short of Jones requesting help GPD will not take action.
“Really it’s not something that we are addressing,” Senn said.” He has not requested anything from us and as with any person if we believe that the crime is being committed or has been committed we will investigate it thoroughly but that has not been reported to us.”
Jones says he is aware of the bounty but not concerned since this is one of many death threats he’s received recently. Reports say Jones has received more than 300 death threats following his burning of the Koran last month.
