Aramis Ayala, the State Attorney of Florida, has received hate mail and even a noose in the mail after her decision to not pursue the death penalty in a case she’s currently dealing with. The case is against Markeith Loyd, who’s being trialed for leading the police on an 8-day hunt after shooting his pregnant girlfriend, Sade Dixon, and Lt Debra Clayton.
The first hate mail started with a letter that said “Sooner Or Later A Nigger Will Be A Nigger” on the envelope. It had several business cards in it, one saying “You are an Honorary Member of S.P.O.N.G.E” and “Society for the Prevention of Niggers Getting Everything.” A week after that she received the mail with a noose made of twine.
Ayala is the first black state attorney of Florida and she’s said she’s received racist remarks both personally and professionally. The hate mail is currently under investigation.
