As far as threats go, this isn’t the FBI’s most dire.
The bureau launched an investigation into an anonymous letter that threatened someone would damage trees and shrubs in the Center of Ole Miss’ campus, the USA Today reports.
“What’s going to happen to y’all on the field Saturday Aint nothing compared to what’s going to happen on your beautiful campus,” the letter read. “You won’t be one of the most pretty campus’s Next year. A lot of shrubs and trees are going to die; especially in the grove. Can’t stop us.” (SIGNED) “Hail State go to hell TSUN”
Ole Miss handed over the note to the FBI’s Jackson office.
University police chief Calvin Sellers said the threat is no laughing matter.
“This longtime football rivalry has separated families and friends for generations, but while it’s spirited, our attention has been focused mostly on the football field,” Sellers said. “We encourage everyone to remember that this is a game, after all, not a time for hate. We are hopeful that passions have not escalated to the point that someone is prepared to do damage to a landmark for which all Mississippians take great pride.”
