Racist threats making rounds on Twitter against Annapolis High and AHS students

UPDATE:  Per Bob Mosier, AACPS Spokesperson, the school system and the police are aggressively investigating this incident with the assistance of Twitter. They do not believe there is a credible threat, but actions are being taken as if it were credible out of an abundance of caution. Parents, students, faculty, and staff can expect to see an increased police presence at the school today.


A  Twitter account (currently suspended), identified as Kkk (@kkkforeal), has made several racist threats against Annapolis High School and black students in particular.  The tweets began circulating last night saying that the school was gong to be blown up today (1/10/2017) and that “black bitches” better run.

The AACPS, along with the Anne Arundel and Annapolis Police Departments have been made aware of the threats and are aggressively investigating it now.

This comes on the heels of several racist incidents in public schools this year, most recently a “petition” circulated at Arundel High.

Details will be updated as more information is available.
