Kentucky Prosecutor Rob Sanders, Twitter avatar
Rob Sanders, a Kenton County Prosecutor, confirmed Tuesday that there are multiple investigations into Twitter users who made terroristic threats against Covington Catholic High School.
“We’ve got multiple ongoing investigations into numerous, numerous threats,” Mr. Sanders said Tuesday in a podcast interview with 700 WLW. “There’s probably a dozen law enforcement agencies, if not more involved in this — it’s growing, it’s spreading, there are other jurisdictions now involved in this,” Sanders added.
700 WLW radio host Willie Cunningham brought up the death threats towards the Covington teens made by bluecheck verified accounts on Twitter and asked Mr. Sanders about Kentucky law.
Hollywood producer Jack Morrissey said the ‘MAGA hat kids should go into a woodchipper’ and LA DJ Michael Buchanan AKA ‘House Shoes’ called for Covington HS to be burned down with the teens locked inside.
“What is the Kentucky law about making threats to Covington Catholic specifically? Is there a law against it?” Willie asked Rob Sanders.
“There is. It’s called ‘terroristic threatening’ in Kentucky and it is a felony offense punishable by 1 to 5 years in prison to make a threat of violence to an educational institution, so everyone who makes a specific threat.”
Mr. Sanders made sure to clarify that saying “nasty things” about the Covington kids is not the same thing as making an “actual threat of violence” against Cov Cath or any other school in Kentucky that’s punishable by 1 to 5 years in prison. The punishment can go up to 5 to 10 years if they talk about using a weapon of mass destruction.
Mr. Sanders reminded listeners to the radio show that it’s not going to be an immediate process because these investigations take time. “You have to prove who’s behind the Twitter handle,” Sanders explained.
“It’s not an immediate process, but it is a process that will get done,” Sanders said, adding, “It will not surprise me to see charges against multiple people before this is all over.”
Rob Sanders made it clear in a Sunday night tweet that he would not tolerate any threats against Covington Catholic High School or any educational institution for that matter, and fired a warning shot to people threatening acts of violence.
The Gateway Pundit reached out to Rob Sanders via email to make him aware of specific threats to Covington Catholic High School that were posted to Twitter by Michael Buchanan, AKA ‘House Shoes.’
This reporter informed Mr. Sanders that the Los Angeles Police Department was made aware of Mr. Buchanan’s threats to burn down Cov Cath with the children locked inside.
Mr. Sanders promptly responded by asking for contact information from anyone at the LAPD involved in the investigation, however; he did not provide further comment.
Thank you Rob Sanders for your swift action, commitment to the rule of law and for protecting the children at Covington Catholic High School.
Just because Twitter says these vile leftists threatening to burn children alive ‘didn’t violate rules’ doesn’t mean they are immune from the real law of the land. Take that, Twitter.
