‘Crosshair Threat’ Prompts Call for More Security Cameras at State Capitol
JEFFERSON CITY, MO. (KMOX) - There’s a push for more security cameras at the Missouri Capitol. Senator Robin Wright-Jones supports the move, sighting the recent rifle-cross-hair posters that were pasted on a number of senator’s doors.
“When the threats came in, and even the second threat came in that I was included in, every one of them referenced the Gabrielle Giffords situation which being a woman and an elected official did not sit well with me.” said Senator Wright-Jones.
Republican Senator Jason Crowell calls the security measures “over-reaction.”
“The governor said and I support the Governor’s decision. We don’t have to put cameras everywhere.” said Senator Crowell.
The bill has stalled in the senate.
