I’m glad they caught the homophobic harasser, but I hope the harasser is charged and convicted for their crimes, and their name ultimately becomes public so good people can avoid associating with the harasser.

The Postal Inspection Service is specially trained to respond to suspicious mailings, including suspicious substances, suspicious items, and suspected explosive devices. We also conduct rigorous investigations into threatening communications to government officials, religious organizations, foreign embassies, news media, and other targeted individuals and groups.
