Eric Sheppard, the Valdosta State University student protester wanted by police in connection with a gun found in his backpack, says he will not turn himself in to authorities.
Sheppard stated he will “annihilate” anyone who comes after him and issued what appears to be threats of violence at Saturday’s graduation ceremonies at Lowndes High School.
The comments were made in a rambling, profanity-laced “memorandum ultimatum” sent to The Valdosta Daily Times condemning white people and local police.
A brief video showing Sheppard wearing sun glasses and inside what appeared to be an SUV accompanied his statement. The video referenced a protest planned in conjunction with the graduation over the disputed death of teenager Kendrick Johnson at the high school more than two years ago. …
The memorandum by Sheppard referenced this weekends graduation, saying, “When my People descend upon that Hellish pit on May 23rd for commemoration of Kendrick Johnson’s life and if they are met with even the slightest inclination of resistance by any pale skinned beast or aid they are more than Justified to Take your Head and post it on a stake for the Entire world to See.”
Sheppard spoke to The Daily Times by telephone Monday, saying he would release the video and statement, including his position on the police manhunt for him. Both were sent to the paper Thursday.
