The LA SI is taking a lot of heat for his rash decision to close all schools. Seems the same (or similar) email was sent to NY and they were smart enough to see it wasn't a credible threat.

Also, the LA SI either didn't consult with authorities to verify if this was a credible threat, or ignored their advice. LA authorities said the treat wasn't credible. So why did this idiot make this expensive decision without consulting or listening to the authorities' opinion?

This could also be a decoy for the real thing, to be unannounced. Anyway, California is safe, because they don't allow assault type weapons there.

They're officially calling this a hoax, which makes the decision by this SI absolutely ridiculous.

What dumb-ass.

To hype the fear.

Get everyone pooping in their pants out of fear, then promise the Gubmit can save us. All we have to do is give up a small freedom or two.

Say,,, Guns and Speech,,, no big deal to keep our kids safe right?

The easiest way to gain control of a population is to carry out acts of terror. [The public] will clamor for such laws if their personal security is threatened”.

There were no warnings about Columbine
There were no warnings about Sandy Hook.
Neither were Islamic acts.
But add those terrorist acts of Boston and San Bernardino and we can only make one logical conclusion.
Such acts will happen. and....
OUR GOVERNMENT CANNOT PROTECT US 24/7 IN 360 DEGREES OF TIME AND SPACE.
We should stop insisting that they attempt to do so.
And our government should stop promising that they can do so without removing our freedoms.
We should stop believing they can do so.
As for this incident, there is absolutely no way a government official can divine what is a credibly threat with certainty.
Vigilance against evil need not, should not, name any one religion, or race, as the enemy. I do hope that is what you were pointing out.
I was simply saying that the initial reaction it could be Islamic was not apparent. It could have been, or perhaps not. It could have been any ethnicity.

On another note the New York police official who stated that they thought it was a hoax because the word 'allah' was spelt with a small a instead of a capital a - well, that was rather unwise and plays into a hoaxer or indeed terrorists' hands. I heard on the radio that it was a Frankfurt IP address from which the email was sent.

And I am just saying we are too quick to ask that sensitive PC question and then everyone argues the point again. Rewarming the PC argument gets in the way of actually protecting our citizens.

Probably both on the same page here, just different perspectives.

Ah ok, yes, we are on the same page. This terrorism thing is turning the world upside down. I wish I could turn the clock back - 30 years or so would be good! The world was a safer place. Yes I know we had threats but not as bad as now, particularly with the internet, social media etc and we don't know who or where the terrorists are with their ducking and diving.

Wasn't it some hoax because it is exam-time? I don't know exactly.
