A handwritten letter was sent to 18 addresses on Sprenger Street -- all of which are the homes of African-American families.

"You just need to move back across 8 Mile. We just need to start killin' you (expletive) one by one," the letter in part reads.

It also lists each address.

"I've never experienced anything like this, ever. It's shocking, very shocking," said resident Darlene Foster.

Hopefully they will catch this person, before they do anything.

Too bad it usually turns out to be a liberal who pulls this crap.

The FBI and U.S. Postal Inspectors Office are investigating.
Wow - over some death threats? If only they were so concerned when anyone else received death threats maybe the world would be a lot safer.
I feel for these people - but I see no reason for the FBI to jump in. :shrug:

I hope they get caught. I would hate to get a letter like that. However I don't hear the same outrage against the black panther calling for the killing of whites and their cracker babies. Things like that may have incited some nut case to write those letters.

I don't really know how to explain common sense. You either have it or your a liberal.
If that is true, then common sense is telling me that you are a liberal.

Global Warming is an assumption. Hate crime hoaxes happen all the time. Not my fault you don't know about them. I suggest doing your own research. I think Ann Coulter is a great source for whom you could start your research with. She has written about hate crime hoaxes on a number of occasions.

I don't care whether it's a conservative, a liberal, or any other party, I hope they are caught and jailed.

They are probably not going to kill anyone. Otherwise, they would be doing it, instead of wasting time with writing letters about it. It must be frightening for those who receive the letters though.

It is the FBI's job to get involved in something like this. It would be a federal matter (US mail) that in theory crossed state lines.

Yea, one gets an article in a local newspaper, one gets headline news on Fox all day long for a week with other places covering it intermittently.

Damn liberal media.

Just like you see this story about a white supremecist Republican actually running for office with that as his stated goal. I'm sure it's been plastered all over fox for the last week, right? Fair and balanced anyone?

Racist New Hampshire man, Ryan J. Murdough, uses hate to get elected to State House seat

The self-professed "racist" is also supported by the American Third Position, a hate-spewing organization designed to "represent the political interests of White Americans, because no one else will."

"For far too long white Americans have been told that diversity is something beneficial to their existence," Murdough wrote in a letter to the Concord Monitor.

"New Hampshire residents must seek to preserve their racial identity if we want future generations to have to possibility to live in such a great state," he wrote.

I'm wondering if Mell's right. It seems rather stupid to send out threatening letters if your intent is to actually kill someone. Of course, trying to track down whoever sent out the letters will probably be really tough. Back when there were threatening letters and white powder being sent to DC politicians, I don't think I remember hearing that anyone was ever caught- maybe I've just forgotten.

Edited: Otoh, I wonder if it's gang-related or something along those lines? Is it a high-crime area? I didn't notice if the op quote said anything about that.

These death threats are clearly coming from the tea party.

Are these black families communists or socialist? I'm pretty sure the tea parties pretty much like black people in general.
Don't believe what you hear from MSM. They have no proof of racism.
