Abstract

“ You’re gonna die bastard ! ”, “ Mr X gets a benefit when he’s not entitled to it ”… These threats sometimes scribbled on a piece of paper with spelling mistakes, these denunciations to authorities, these letters full of hatred generally don’t bear any signature. They are many people ready to denounce and threaten their neighbours. There are many motives : resentment, jealousy, frustrated love or even racism.
