What kind of precedent does this set?

BlueJaye:
Not sure, but certainly not a good precedent. My initial reaction is anyone who would threaten to kill school administrators over transgender rights would probably have no qualms killing the transgender students the administrators were hoping to protect. Yikes!

I'd thinka little investigation would be able to find the perpetrator(s) of the the threats.  Any chance any of them get prosecuted?

It would seem that if you make enough death threats and perpetrate some violence then you can get your way. This of course will all be done under the guise of “free speech”. IMHO this is about poor education and a religious doctrine gone mad. In what other situation would this been seen as acceptable and instead of push back we have capitulation.

IMHO Those who have accepted this as a win are very short sighted.
