ORANGE PARK, Fla. -- Local parents are outraged after seeing a Clay County school employee's comments about the late Jordan Davis.

"We'll continue to wait for justice for Jordan," said Davis' mother, Lucia McBath McBath gave that tearful speech right after the trial. Her picture was posted on Facebook and got hundreds of likes and comments, many of them supportive, except for some.

"She stated, 'She had a thug for a son' and another comment said, 'Hope the black boy burns in hell.' Everybody is pretty much appalled by that. It's uncalled for," said a concerned parent who didn't want to be identified. The parent said the Oakleaf Junior High teacher's posts were unacceptable.

Action News has learned that Susan Wright has been with Clay County Schools for 15 years. "How do I know that I can trust my child to be around her or someone else can trust their child to be around her with the attitude that she's harboring?" said the parent.       

The Clay County School District said they're investigating the matter. We wanted an explanation so we went to Wright's house. Her husband answered the door and said, "She didn't make any comments about Jordan Davis and his mother." He also told us that he didn't think she wanted to talk to us because it will cause problems with her school. Wright eventually said she didn't want to talk.

Parents are however, speaking out, demanding that the district fire her. "At the end of the day a life was lost and he's not here to defend himself," said the parent.
In a statement released to Action News, an attorney for Jordan Davis' family said, "We hope the school system takes a serious look at Ms. Wright's character if she indeed has so offensively and prejudicially judged Jordan Davis. If she made these posts, her ability to maintain a position of judgment over children is in serious question."

From the writings below, it is obvious that many of you all could have benefitted from finishing elementary school.

This woman is a perfect example of how racism is still rampant in the U.S. It is sad that people like this are in a position to deny deserving people a quality education, jobs or housing because of their race or ethnic background. This woman should be terminated!

nativejax, really? accosted by loud music? If shooting rude teens were legal I'm sure most of us wouldn't be here now. Since when is it too much to ask for kids to go to the mall or walk to a convenience store without being profiled as thugs or criminals and killed.

real change: Trayvon never attacked any kids at his school. He drew on a locker door, the jewelry was investigated and found to have not been reported stolen. Why lie? Will the truth not serve your cause? He never bragged about having hit a bus driver, no bus driver ever came forward, Miami Dade PD had NOTHING on Trayvon. He never attempted to buy a gun. Where are you getting all of these lies? Storm front? If you think White people should riot, have at it.

Mrs.Wright needs to be fired because what she wrote online.And to say that little black can burn hell.He did ask to be killed or even have a gun.The boys he was with they were also young at that age I would say babies.If that was me and wrote that stuff online about my two boys it would be hell because when it comes to my two babies I don't play games.My two are mixed with white and black so someone gonna say my kids are thugs or they are just asking for trouble but guess what they are my thugs and trouble just remember MAMA BEAR DON'T PLAY WHEN IT COMES DOWN TO HER CUBS.I feel so sorry for the family of Jordan Davis.He was taken from y'all way to soon.MAY GOD BLESS THE DAVIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS

According to some the comments here black people without records are not criminals. Trayvon Martin was caught with stolen jewelry got off. Was caught vandalizing property at school got off. Caught attacking kids at school suspended multiple times. Bragged about attacking his bus driver nothing happened. Attempted to buy street guns after a snitch had not bled enough for him. Yet people cant find a reason why Martin would double back and attack Zimmerman after seeing him on the phone with someone (the police in this case). Davis was playing music loud enough to be a public nuisance does that warrant his death? Of course not. Yet when a mob of black teens beat a man to death in city where there is huge gun regulations and the teens only get 18 months in jail makes you stop and think. Maybe you like the convenience store clerk shot by a thug as he enters telling her if you want live empty that register now. As she begs for her life he still kills her. Maybe you like the thugs rob a young white woman when they realize she has no money shoot her baby point blank as punishment. Maybe you like the flash riot in Jacksonville involving guess what race. Maybe you like the young girl running a phone store shot out spite and killed. If White people rioted every time black people committed a crime against them there would be all out war.

Anyone can copy a pic of you off your facebook page and set up fake page in your name. I would be willing to bet that it was not her.
