“We will not tolerate domestic terrorism in any form, but especially when it is directed against our children,” Franklin said. “Students should be able to get an education without fear or the threat of violence. Mr. Calhoun’s actions were unacceptable, and I hope this prosecution sends the message that we will not abide any threats of violence against a school.”
The Eufaula Police Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Quitman County Sheriff’s Department, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, the Enterprise Police Department, the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency and the Alabama Fusion Center cooperated in the investigation of this case.
