ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) – Scrawled on a bathroom wall, a racist threat has Arlington ISD increasing security at Boles Junior High.
The message reads “GET READY. SHOOTING ALL N*****S”
It evens sets a time and date: 1:30 on Wednesday, December 2.
“It’s pretty shocking,” said one mom, who asked not to be identified.
She says she saw the threat against African Americans after a friend shared a picture her daughter had sent her.
“I asked her if she was sending her daughter to school tomorrow and she said, no, she’s keeping her home,” she said.
Her own children attend elementary school behind the junior high campus and will be in class tomorrow. The decision, though, is a difficult one.
“Do I pull them out of school every time a threat like this comes up and risk them losing a part of their education or do I continue to leave them in school and wait to find out what happens from the media. It’s a tough call to make,” she said.
A spokesperson says police determined it was “not credible.”
“We will have a normal school day with additional security and police presence tomorrow,” read a statement.
