Kia Reid, a former sales representative at a Sheraton Suites hotel in Philadelphia, was sentenced to eight months in a community corrections center plus two years of probation for sending a threatening note to her supervisor, who is an American Muslim of Arabic descent.

Reid cut and pasted words and phrases from publications to form the note that read, in part, “Remember 9/11,” “you and your kids will pay,” “tie onto the fence,” “patriotism and anger along with desire for revenge,” “strategically planned” and “death.”

Reid was convicted of a federal hate crime.
