Panama City, FL –
BAY COUNTY Florida (WMBB) – A malicious email message that was sent to school officials in the Bay District prompts community members to step up to help.
After initial investigations, the school board said the email was not sent by the person who owns the account.
News 13 got the email that about 100 Bay District School leaders saw early morning Tuesday. Much of the email contains hateful and racist language. Community members said they are offering their support to help track down whoever wrote it.
“After reading the email, it was just filled with fanatic hate racism,” said Perry & Young Lawyer Larry Perry.
Perry was contacted by a school district employee who was upset by the malicious message. He said the sentiment behind the email is not welcome in our community.
“Words have a meaning and when these words are said it means that the thought behind the idea is already there and the words become actions and we want to stop it and throw it on the garbage heap of the story where it belongs, ”Perry said.
Perry is offering a $ 1,000 reward via Crime stoppers for anyone holding information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible. This will be combined with the $ 500 the district has already provided.
“They don’t need to go back to school on the first grade with a hate mail filled with fanaticism that is the focal point,” Perry said.
Bay Schools Superintendent Bill Husfelt said the email was against everything they stood for on Tuesday.
“I don’t care how old the person who did it was,” Husfelt said. “They had enough wit to think like that and it’s disturbing in itself.”
