Editor's Note: The following letter was sent to parents/guardians of students from Wellington C. Mepham High School from Principal Michael Harrington.

On Dec. 22, one of our students was approached at the mall by a 2002 graduate, who made a series of angry and alarming comments about Mepham High School.

On Dec. 28, the student and her mother were able to positively identify the man in a 2002 yearbook and we contacted the First Precinct.

Yesterday afternoon, I was informed that due to a history of troubled behavior and this most recent incident, the police were going to arrest the individual. 

As more information becomes available, I will update you.

We ALL need more info ASAP!!! How/why did he approach the student? What did he EXACTLY say/communicate to the student? Does he have a history of violence/untoward behavior? If so, to what extent /nature? Regardless, in the wake of our culture taking a nose dive at the hands of the mentally ill, this individual needs to be LOCKED-UP in a secure facility for a FULL 30-DAY PSYCHOLOGICAL EVALUATION. And if the ACLU tries to intervene on his behalf, we should ALL flood their media sites with vociferous objection.

Does anyone in our community know anything about him? And why did he change his name? Civic duty is calling on anyone to inform the community of any pertinent info on this creep.

Now what's the difference between this guy and the kids that threatened harm in the North Bellmore School article last year with the bullying incident..... Why is this man arrested and taken seriously but the kid i thibk he was under 12 and he threatened people IN the school?????

This kid wasnt on school grounds and i believe in the other incidant the actions happened in the classroom.......... Listen age makes no difference we need to treat these things SERIAOUSLY at any age

As a parent of children that attend Mepham I did not get a letter sent home about the incident. In fact my children didn't even know about it until last night when I told them.

Once again, Mr. Hunt, your words speak volumes about you. Unfortunately there are winners and losers in this world. Guess which category you belong? But you already know which, don't you? You need help and I think you know that, too.

Since I live off of Dewey and close to Mepham. Anybody out there who thinks any of this is funny and have a need to go around and pull a threat, no matter whether they are drunk and became stupid, or are straight and just plain stupid. Guess what. None of this is funny, especially when you have and know kids who go to this school. And as for Robert Hunt, as he commented in the Updated article yesterday about being a cyber-bully himself: "I was a cyberbully before there was a name for it. in 10th grade i had a website that got 5k hits in 4 months". Thank for your honesty, Mr Hunt. Maybe you should be investagated as well. But please Mr Hunt. No more comments from you. We know who and what you are.
