Kentucky prosecutor pursuing those who threatened Covington teens

By Around the Web

(PJMedia) The investigations could take weeks or months, but Kenton County prosecutor Rob Sanders wants the culprits who made terroristic threats against Covington Catholic High School students held accountable. Sanders said Wednesday that his office has already issued grand jury subpoenas and is working on search warrants for detectives in other agencies.

The school was closed on Tuesday due to security concerns and reopened on Wednesday under close police supervision.

The students were accused of mocking Native American activist Nathan Phillips outside the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., after the March for Life on Friday, spurring a frenzy that resulted in threats coming from across the country by phone, email, and social media.

According to Fox19, “some of the social media threats to the school and students have been extreme. One person called to burn the school down and fire on the MAGA hat-wearing students on sight.”
