Local and federal authorities were investigating threats to kill Kentucky schoolchildren as well as Senator Rand Paul and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who are both from the state.
The message, obtained by Fox News Digital, threatened to target both Republican politicians and appears to imply the murder of children who voted for them in threats made to the Bowling Green Independent Schools, Warren County Schools, and Allen County Schools.
The threat states, “If you want to vote for Michael McConnell and Rand Paul, then you must deal with the consequences.” “And the only way you will learn is when your f******* racist cracker children are bleeding to death on the ground.” Then you would understand what the rest of us have to endure daily because of the fascists you elected.”
“I want you to look at your dead children and know that it was because of how you voted,” the speaker added.
“I will become f****** famous. Nik Crus is not garbage! ” the threat stated, referring to Nikolas Cruz, who is currently receiving a life sentence for the 2018 mass shooting at Parkland.
A superintendent was informed of the threat, which targeted the faculty and students of three high schools in the vicinity, along with Senators Rand Paul and McConnell.
Wednesday, Bowling Green Independent Schools notified the community of a threat posted on a website based in Lexington without providing many details.
“Bowling Green High School, Warren Central High School, and Allen County-Scottsville High School, as well as Senators Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul,” reads a note on the school district’s website from Bowling Green High School Principal Kyle McGraw. There is no date or time specific to the threat.
According to Fox News Digital, the Bowling Green Police Department is conducting an investigation. Fox News Digital has contacted school districts and the United States. The Capitol Police and the offices of Senators Paul and McConnell.
In the threatening letter, the author stated, “If you want to vote for Michael McConnell and Rand Paul, then you’ll have to face with the consequences.”
The FBI office in Louisville informed Fox News Digital that they were aware of the threats.
FBI statement: “Although we have no evidence that the threats are real, we are taking them seriously and are actively working with local authorities to find those responsible.” “It is a federal criminal to issue a threat — whether by social media, text message, or email” (threatening interstate communications). Even if these threats are determined to be hoaxes, they could be prosecuted as federal offenses.
“Hoax threats are no laughing matter since they disrupt school, squander scarce law enforcement resources, and cause unwarranted anguish to our students, school personnel, and parents,” the department added.
The individual who tweeted the threat also stated that they would prefer to kill former President Donald Trump, but “I can reach your children.”
“I’ll do the task at a football game. I will complete the task whenever possible. I cannot be stopped. I’ll bring up a few pigs, too,” the author said, using a disparaging word for police officers.
The threat concludes with “See you soon” written above the addresses of Bowling Green, Warren Central, and James Bazzell Middle Schools.
