Investigators are looking into threats reportedly made against the children of members of the board of education of Jefferson County, Colorado (JeffCo), where thousands of students have walked out of classes to protest what they have been told is an attempt to teach them patriotism and citizenship and discourage civil disobedience.

According to local FOX 31 Denver news, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department and the school district’s security division both confirm they are investigating threats made Wednesday against the child of board member John Newkirk, who said that while he accepts the current situation of teacher walkouts, student protests, and contentious board meetings as part of his job, he never expected his children or family members to be victimized.
