Apple Valley, Minn., State Law Enforcement Officials Gather to Discuss Safety and Security

(TNS) - More than 100 people gathered at a government center in Apple Valley Monday night to send a message to all that they stand against all forms of hate and evil.

“We as a community will not tolerate intolerance and crimes based on intolerance, and we, as a community, stand in solidarity arms locked, ready to defend and protect, every citizen here in Minnesota,” U.S. Attorney Erica MacDonald said.

MacDonald was one of more than nine officials who spoke as part of a community meeting in response to the shooting that took place at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The more than an hourlong event discussed a variety of topics including federal hate crimes laws, identifying and reporting hate crimes, and best practices for creating safe and secure houses of worship.
