As of late, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has risen to prominence after announcing racketeering accusations against Young Thug, Gunna, and other members of Young Stoner Life Records.
Willis told WSB-TV that since taking on the case involving YSL and its alleged operation as a street gang, she has received numerous threats on her life, relating to both her handling of the YSL case and the formation of a special grand jury to examine efforts to reverse the outcomes of Georgia's 2020 presidential election.
Willis carefully explained, “I’m much more cautious than I’ve ever been in my life, of paying attention to my surroundings. It’s required for me to stay alive.”
She also alluded that she’s added extra security to her detail for further protection.
Willis kept it brief when questioned about specific threats, knowing that one of them came from someone who knows where she lives.
Following, came some very scary and disturbing words from Willis:
“Basically, they’re going to murder me, that the DA is going to get got,” she said. “I’m not going to be intimidated from doing [my job] and doing it in a correct fashion and holding people accountable. We don’t believe these threats were directed by anyone in the YSL indictment. I would say that people are very sympathetic, maybe admirers of YSL and connected to them in some sense.”
As we remember from one of our previous reports, an 18-year-old Quartavious Mender was arrested for his terroristic threats on Instagram threatening the lives of Fulton County Sheriff Pat Labat and his wife on social media following his anger of the YSL arrests.
These threats seem to be coming from, as Willis explained, “admirers of YSL” and those who are excessively "sympathetic."
