The recent video posted on our Facebook page has been removed. Below is the message sent by Chief Majoy on Sunday, 7/1/2018:
The News Director from Channel 5 notified me to report they have received threats of violence and are gravely concerned for their safety. We condemn this conduct and I am saddened by it.
The spirit behind the release of this video – as noted in the post – is to remind folks to respect the privacy of this and all victims of crime. It was released with the consent of the victim with this in mind.
News 5 did indeed hold themselves accountable as they have shared. Aside of one’s thoughts or opinion on this matter, there is no room for threats of violence and this needs to stop immediately.
Please share my comments to promote safety and decry the threat of violence. Together we can make a difference.
Newschannel 5 has been receiving death threats, as is usual 2018 behavior.
