WTXF - Following this morning’s spate of threats against schools in several states, including Delaware, a state senator from that state has issued a statement denouncing those making the threats.
State Senator Ernesto Lopez, a Republican who represents the Lewes area, slammed “another coward sought to put fear into the hearts and minds of our Cape district parents with a threat made against our most vulnerable population: our children.”
“Once again, Cape district teachers, administrators and staff, showed courage, care and concern for their students and on a day of brutal cold went above and beyond the job each of them intended to perform when they arrived in their classrooms to work this morning,” the senator continued.
The senator went on to thank teachers, staff and law enforcement for their work.
“Let me make something perfectly clear to those who continue to try to instill fear into Moms and Dads, grandparents and our community as a whole: your actions are despicable and when you are discovered you will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. It is only a matter of time until your arrogance and mean spiritedness catch up with you and when they do, please be mindful of the fact that in choosing to use our children to spread your fear, patience and understanding as to your reasoning will be difficult to bestow. We will find you.”
