Weinberg & Sarlo Praise Bergen Law Enforcement On Arrest Of Alleged Synagogue Firebomber

TRENTON – Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg and Sen. Paul Sarlo (both D-Bergen) today both praised Bergen County’s law enforcement community for the arrest of a suspect behind the desecration of synagogues in Rutherford and Paramus:

“We applaud the hard work of all of the many law enforcement personnel whose dedication to justice and upholding the law led us to today’s arrest. No one should ever fear for their religious freedoms, yet fear is exactly what one deranged mind put into all our communities of faith. While the individual involved in at least two of these disgusting attacks is now in custody, we cannot let up in our efforts to promote tolerance and understanding among all people who call New Jersey home.”

In addition, the senators singled-out for praise Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli for taking the lead on the investigation and for his department’s relentless pursuit of apprehending the alleged perpetrator.
