  • Follow Crime & courts

Authorities were called to a Mike Padgett Highway business Tuesday after the restaurant received a threatening Christmas card.

An owner at Jack’s Kuntry Kitchen, 3905 Mike Padgett Highway, told officers he opened a card at the restaurant that read “Hope you and your family rot in hell and die early. Y’all deserve it. Bye bye.”

The victim told authorities he believes the card was from a disgruntled employee who was recently fired.

"Authorities were called........"

Is this a criminal offense? If the culprit is identified, will charges be laid? Is it a crime to send a nasty-gram which doesn't make specific threats?

Doesn't sound like a threat

Doesn't sound like a threat to me; just a nasty letter. Not sure I would have bothered law enforcement with this.

I don't know Willow, there

I don't know Willow, there are some crazy people out there. You fire someone in today's economy, who's to say that the anger and hate continues to escalate and a nasty card isn't enough. Next thing you know you have a drive by shooting to scare someone and someone just happens to get hurt. Better to err on the safe side.

Shouldn't it have read "die

Shouldn't it have read "die early and rot in hell"?
Hard to believe a deputy's time was wasted on this.

studmuffin1533, if your mother, father, sister, brother, spouse, or child, had received a message such as this......would you have thought it a waste of time or would you want someone in authority to take a look at it, just to be sure?
