Thousands of people marched across the Brooklyn Bridge on Sunday as part of an anti-hate rally amid a spate of attacks against the Jewish community. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said at the march that he planned to propose a new state law that would label hate crimes as domestic terrorism, CBS New York reported.
“These are terrorists and it should be punished as such,” Cuomo said.
Cuomo said Sunday that there would be an increase of the state police force and a higher presence of the hate crimes task force in vulnerable communities.
