Fear that graffiti might be terror threat at Tyson’s Food in Shelbyville, TN

Update January 2nd, 2011: Tysons needs to come clean with the whole story, here.

Update December 30th: Tysons: move along, nothing to see, here.

Update December 28th:  A few more details here.

Longtime readers know that we’ve written many posts over the years about myriad problems with Muslim immigrants (mostly Somalis) working at Tyson’s Food in Shelbyville, TN.  Most recently we told you about the film, produced by far-Leftwing film makers, that sought to gloss over problems in the town and was being shown around the US (and by the US State Department in Africa!).

Tonight we hear that an investigation is underway after graffiti in a rest room which said, “All Americans must die” has employees on edge.  There are also reports of a fire being set in a woman’s rest room.

From WSMV-TV 4 from Nashville:

The Shelbyville chief of police and a former Tyson employee confirmed that threatening messages surfaced this week, leading to extra security at the plant.

“A couple days ago, they had a terrorist threat that was written on the bathroom walls that said ‘all Americans must die,'” said a woman, who said she wanted to remain anonymous to protect her relative, who works inside the plant.

She said that she didn’t see the writing herself but is aware of what’s going on from others.

“One day last week, someone set the women’s bathroom on fire, and they finally put a security guard at the bathroom door,” the woman said.

She said workers are scared.

“Some of them are afraid. They’ve been talking about it and worried about it and wondering what Tyson is going to do about it,” she said.

“We have not been asked to come down to Tyson to make any kind of official report,” said Chief Austin Swing.

But Swing said the department has been asked to provide an armed, off-duty officer to patrol inside the plant through the holidays. Tyson didn’t explain the reason why.

“I guess I’m assuming now, but he’s just there for some type of security reason or to maybe to put people at ease who work there,” said Swing.

He said he believes Tyson has already removed the graffiti and is conducting its own investigation into who’s responsible.

“They’ve doubled up the guards in the guard shack outside,” the anonymous woman said.
Some at the plant are concerned.

“They’ve complained for years, as to why these people are being hired in our food department when we are worried about our safety as Americans, you know, and that’s something we all need to think about,” she said.

Coincidentally, only a few days ago Homeland Security warned about a possible terror attack involving poisoning our food supply, here.

Update: Jihad Watch has posted commentary on the Tyson’s story.
