New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo tasked the State Police Hate Crimes Task Force to help the NYPD investigate the Friday night vandalism of the Bais Rivkah School in Crown Heights.
Governer Cuomo wrote in a press release that “On Friday night, an armed person vandalized the Bais Rikvah School in Crown Heights. I am disgusted by this latest blatant act of anti-Semitism, and it is made worse by the fact that it was directed at a school where our youngest New Yorkers go to learn and where parents expect their children to be safe.”
Cuomo directing the State Police Hate Crime Task Force to, “assist local law enforcement in investigating this crime. We will find the responsible party and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law.”
Cuomo finished that, “New York will never tolerate discrimination and we will continue to stamp out hate whenever and wherever it rears its ugly head.”
