Evan Ebel hit-list reference, "Bring on the f*ck letters" punctuated with a swastika

The more we learn about Evan Ebel, the man thought to have murdered pizza-delivery man Nathan Leon and Colorado prison boss Tom Clements, the more disturbing is the portrait he left behind after taking a bullet in the head at the end of a Texas police chase.

Now, a letter has surfaced (see it below) in which a reference to a possible post-prison hit list is accompanied by the evil smiley face to the right and a post-script features an exclamation point with a swastika in the place of the dot.
