BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2023 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Palm Beach County State Attorney David Aronberg says the people behind antisemitic leaflets in Boca Raton are “cowards.” He joined me this morning on South Florida’s First News on NewsRadio610 WIOD.

“Yeah, these leaflets were disgusting, despicable, and really cowardly,” he said. “Because think about it, they drove through neighborhoods under the cover of darkness and then slithered away under there to go back under the rocks. They didn’t want to be seen. They didn’t want any confrontation with people because they’re cowards.”

Boca Raton Police have been investigating the incident for several days, but at this point, no arrests have been made. Even if suspects are found, it’s unclear what they could be charged with. Aronberg said free speech laws apply.

“The First Amendment provides broad protection,” said Aronberg. “In fact, there was a law on the books passed in 1971, that would have made that act of throwing those leaflets onto people’s property, a crime a misdemeanor, and it was thrown out by the courts in 2001.”

Several homeowners reported that a plastic bag with antisemitic leaflets and unknown pellets were found on their yards. The pellets were harmless, according to authorities. Listen to the complete interview as heard on “South Florida’s First News With Andrew Colton” here.
