Threats and bul­lies

The Covington News - - LOCAL - SA­MAN­THA REAR­DON news@cov­

“I should have killed you last year in Span­ish class while I had the chance.”

This is what fa­ther and Cov­ing­ton res­i­dent Johnny Mark Crowe said was told to his daugh­ter by a male stu­dent at In­dian Creek Mid­dle School.

He con­tacted po­lice on Au­gust 5 when he learned his 13-year-old daugh­ter was again re­ceiv­ing ha­rass­ing calls like these from the boy.

Crowe told po­lice this had hap­pened sev­eral times last year and was not in­formed by the school. Deputy Rowe, the mid­dle school’s stu­dent re­source of­fi­cer, knows about the sit­u­a­tion and made sev­eral re­ports of it last year. Some dis­ci­plinary ac­tion had been taken, as the male stu­dent in ques­tion had pre­vi­ously been sus­pended and re­moved from class.

Crowe does not know any­thing about the male stu­dent other than that the male has con­tin­ued threat­en­ing his daugh­ter again now that school has be­gun.

In his re­port, Of­fi­cer James McGil­vray said: “The com­plainant said he has not yet made con­tact with the prin­ci­pals, stu­dent re­source of­fi­cer or the New­ton County Board of Ed­u­ca­tion.”

The silent part­ner

Mr. Par­tee had no idea there was a silent part­ner in­volved in his res­tau­rant busi­ness un­til a Mr. Homer Rainey be­gan com­ing in over the past sev­eral weeks.

On Au­gust 4, Par­tee said Rainey called him to ask per­sonal ques­tions about the busi­ness. When Par­tee de­clined an­swers, Rainey told him he “would have to do what he has to do.”

It was 11 a.m. that day when Par­tee said Rainey came into the res­tau­rant.

Par­tee and Rainey be­gan dis­cussing the new chef and his du­ties, and Par­tee stated he would need a back­ground check on em­ploy­ees. That’s when Rainey be­gan look­ing through his wal­let. Af­ter look­ing through sev­eral I.D. cards, Rainey pulled out his con­cealed gun li­cense and showed it to Par­tee.

“Mr. Par­tee stated that he feels that Mr. Rainey is bul­ly­ing him around and not sure what he meant by show­ing him the con­cealed li­cense per­mit,” wrote of­fi­cer Ken­neth Kent in his Au­gust 5 re­port.
