Ohio AG Dave Yost Steps Up to Protect Christian and Conservatives
Below you will see a letter from Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost to the FBI office in Kentucky that is handling the investigation into the threats made against the Covington Catholic student, parents and community members. AG Yost is offering to look into any threats against Ohio residents and any threats made by Ohio residents. On August 15, 2016, Ohio’s telecommunications harassment statute was amended to criminalize “knowingly post[ing] a text or audio statement or an image [online] for the purpose of abusing, threatening, or harassing another person.” Ohio Rev. Code § 2917.21 (b) (2). This law was amended specifically to stop the kind of threats and bulling of which the Covington Catholic students have been subjected.
While an independent investigation this week cleared the Covington Students of any wrong doing in this incident, and private law suits are going to be filed – that is not enough. We as a society must reject the actions and methods used by the Left against these innocent student, and all of us, to silence Christians, Conservatives and Trump supporters by seeing the perpetrators prosecuted for their crimes. We DEMAND, and are entitled to under the U.S. and our State Constitutions, “equal protection under the law” and “equal justice under the law” and right now we are not getting either of them. That must change NOW. Any person residing in Ohio who attacked these students should be charged under this Ohio law and we expect Attorney General Yost to do that.
We look forward to having these criminals publicly identified and prosecuted in the week and month ahead. I personally thank all of you who called the Attorney General’s office and the FBI and DOJ to demand that we get the justice we deserve!
