FBI May Investigate Threats Made to Teacher

FBI May Be Called After North Idaho College Instructor Gets Death Threats

As reported by the Associated Press:

North Idaho College police say they will likely ask the FBI for help in investigating e-mail death threats made against a North Idaho College instructor.

Coeur d'Alene police Sergeant Christie Wood says the threats were sent to the e-mail account of Jessica Bryan from people across the country. Bryan is a part-time instructor who teaches English 102, a class where she says she uses outlandish examples of opinions as a way to spark discussion in the class that focuses on critical thinking and persuasive writing.

She offended one student who asked for her money back after Bryan allegedly making negative comments about Republicans. But that student, Linda Cook, says she is appalled by the death threats against her former instructor.
