Lucky he does not get jail time or offed with extreme prejudice

When Sir Simon McDonald responded to the resignation letter he said
I understand your wish to relieve the pressure on your family

What do you think that meant, in a land of widespread gun ownership? It could mean his family being subjected to loud and vocal mobs harassing them. Or it could mean 'offed with extreme prejudice'.

Not a phrase to use lightly, I feel.
