Hate Letter

Eastpointe, MI-Imagine going out to get your mail and finding a letter telling you to move out of the neighborhood or be killed. That’s what happened to several Eastpointe, Michigan families.

“Us ‘n’s’ need to move back across Eight Mile and that they will start killing us off one by one,” said Kwanita Graham.

Graham and about 19 other families received the letters written in poor English saying, quote ‘We tired of u (n words) movin in are neighborhood.’ It then goes on to threaten to kill them if they don’t move.

The Graham family has lived in Eastpointe for two years and reportedly never had trouble before. One of Graham’s neighbors also received a letter and stated, “Although the letter may not have been directed at her, she’s still outraged.”

While some people may look at sending threatening letters through the mail is a prank, the US postal inspectors take it very serious. The letters are form of terrorism.

Common definitions of terrorism refer only to those violent acts which are intended to create fear (terror), are perpetrated for an ideological goal, and deliberately target or disregard the safety of non-combatants (civilians).Some definitions also include acts of unlawful violence -Wikipedia

Coercion is the practice of forcing another party to behave in an involuntary manner (whether through action or inaction) by use of threats, intimidation, trickery, or some other form of pressure or force. Such actions are used as leverage, to force the victim to act in the desired way. Coercion may involve the actual infliction of physical pain/injury or psychological harm in order to enhance the credibility of a threat.-Wikipedia

If anyone have information of who sent the letters contact your local postal inspectors.

The USPIS is primarily an investigative agency comprising of plain-clothes federal criminal investigators entitled “Postal Inspectors” whose primary mission is “to protect the U.S. Postal Service, its employees and its customers from criminal attack, and protect the nation’s mail system from criminal misuse”. It has responsibility for over 700,000 Postal Service employees and billions of pieces of mail transported through air, land, rail and sea world wide a year.
