Governor Cuomo issues a warning to anyone threatening a school.
Cuomo says whether or not they actually intend to carry out the threat, they will receive the harshest possible penalty.
The governor was reacting to threats against Albion middle school this past week that led to the removal of at least three students from school.
Cuomo said in a statement that “school officials in Upstate New York worked with local, state and federal law enforcement officers to help stop an alleged plot by three students to attack Albion Middle School. The plot was determined to be credible and the agencies worked quickly to investigate and identify the suspects”
The school has revealed little about the actual threats other than they deemed them as credible and that they were shared among a small group of students through an online gaming app.
