“The employee has been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation,” Zuzek said in a statement. “Pursuant with the data practices act, we are limited to providing additional information regarding this matter.”
“That’s messed up,” Matt Bleuw said of the tweet. “I don’t think you should be inciting violence because someone might actually do it.”
People across the metro are reacting.
“There is no time for people to think, they just tweet,” Mary Jo said.
The sheriff’s office in Ramsey County, where the tweet originated, is working with the FBI to investigate the post, likely attempting to determine whether or not the threat is credible.
The account of the individual who made the tweet has been shut down and as of now the teaching assistant has not been charged with a crime.
