Duke Profs Receive Racist E-Mail After Lacrosse CaseDear Duke Police,
Durham — Duke University police are investigating death threats against professors who questioned racial attitudes on campus a year ago, shortly after a black woman accused three white Duke lacrosse players of sexually assaulting her.
We read the above article concerning allegations of e-mail threats to the Duke 88. We hope you are investigating this matter thoroughly. The sending of hateful e-mails is strongly opposed by our blog and other blogs who supported the innocent Duke Lacrosse Team. No one should ever receive physical threats.
As you know, Reade Seligmann received death threats while walking into the Durham County Courthouse. Those were recorded on national TV. Do you know if those who were shown making those threatening remarks were ever questioned by the Durham PD or Sheriff's Department? During the first weeks of the Hoax, some lacrosse players mentioned they were threatened on campus. Duke lacrosse coach Mike Pressler also received death threats generated by this Hoax. Did you ever investigate the threats to Coach Pressler and the lacrosse team?
Enclosed is a picture of a physical threat to castrate the inhabitants at 610 N. Buchanan. It occurred between 9:00 am & 10:00 am on Sunday, March 26, 2006. Those inhabitants were members of the Duke University student body. The angry protesters were chanting loud demands that the members of the house get out of town. The physical threat was undeniable.
Also, I do want to let you know that news crews from WRAL-TV were there at the site interviewing the protesters. Since they wrote the article, maybe they can show you the video they shot to help you identify the threateners.
PS: Your police were there too! Here is a picture of one of Durham's patrol cars (#500), and it appears the officer is talking with two Duke police officers ... one uniform and one Duke police badge are visible, with another Durham PD officer standing by.
If you need help in identifying who was there, I am sure the Duke 88 will be happy to name their graduate students who actively participated.
