St. Paul, Minn – State Senator Sandra Pappas (DFL-St. Paul) released the following statement in response to the Feb. 20, 2017 bomb threat to the St. Paul Jewish Community Center in Highland Park.
“I am disturbed by the unprecedented number of bomb threats targeting Jewish centers. Even though no bombs were found today, the terror and chaos these threats have caused are real. This particular center houses an early child care program and a fitness center. More than 190 kids and their caregivers were evacuated today — the cowards taking part in these terrible threats in Minnesota Jewish Centers and centers across the country need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
