Yeah, that NYC press conference was surreal. Minimizing LA officials, mocking their decision. So stupid and possibly dangerous. We don't need to get into a pissing contest over who handles these issues best.

But now everybody is getting hit with criticism. LA for overreacting, and NYC for underreacting.

Of course - but San Bernardino is like 30 miles from LA? And they understand there were others involved in that attack?
They definitely did the right thing by clearing the schools.

If an email can halt an entire city like this, then we should pack it in. The Jihadis win. No contest.

In an open society there is no avoiding this
if we want to avoid the sting/backlash, best we can do is stop poking the bees nest over seas
There is nobody to blame but ourselves for supporting or allowing this to continue

Anyone check to see if the DHS/FBI planes are over LA? That will tell you if it is credible.


Im in Hollywood ATM and cant see anything in the skies you are referring to. Just the usual police helicopter that fly overhead all day.

I can't believe there are still lots of people think this is just false flags etc. I think even if there were thousands of lifeslost they would still say it wasn't happening. People neec to wake up to the fact that the West is at war with an ideology. This ideology has been allowed to spread because people still haven't woke up. You would think Paris would have been enough, but obviously not.people are still making excuses and all the while the enemy within is expanding and no one is doing anything to stop it! There are going to be a lot of awakenings to come over the next 12months I am afraid, I think it will be a long, long time before people know what it is to feel safe.a reply to: laminatedsoul

The new America, an open air prison, "on lockdown". Threat or no threat, they are running the same program they do in prisons. Someone starts a fight or pulls a blade and the sirens sound, the guards come running, everyone, "Get down on the ground and don't move, the whole prison is on Lockdown!" They search the whole place, harass everyone until the 'all clear'. Anyone see the parallel?

Interesting enough to note bomb threats and emergency calls occur all the time that are hoaxes, and oddly enough, the schools are the places being shutdown. The children need the indoctrination the most, they are gullible, unlike adults.

As far as the people in charge, they are playing a child's game. Like little kids arguing who runs the sandbox, or disrupting the game by taking the ball and going home.

This country is being run by adult children. Its our ball and you can't play.



Yeeeaahh first the schools were closed prior to anyone showing up, and secondly SB just happened and I don't blame them for doing this. As Angeldoll put it-


Closing the schools is the prudent thing to do. I would rather look foolish in the aftermath, than have a bunch of dead and maimed kids, regardless who the perps are, lone wolf or thug gang.

You mean this aircraft?

Anyway, so if this was sent to both LA and NY school districts, I wonder if there were any other districts that received this same message but have not yet made a report to the media?

CNN reporting the threat warning came from Germany. It was an email.


Germany??? No # huh?

And now the whizzing contest begins. New York is saying LA overreacted. LA is saying they couldn't take the chance based off "past circumstances."

Enjoy the day off, kiddos.

More left wing anti-American hatred leading to MORE threats of violence. When will the left reign in their extremists?

Not sure if this part was posted....


A New York superintendent received the threat early Tuesday morning, Bratton said. De Blasio said the threat was specific, and Bratton said it appears to have come from overseas. The NYPD began an immediate investigation with the Joint Terrorism Task Force and the FBI.

Bratton said one indication that the email is a hoax is that Allah was not spelled with a capital “A.”

“The language in the email would lead us to believe that this is not a jihadist initiative,” he said. ” … That would be incredible to think that any jihadist would not spell Allah with a capital ‘A.'”


Because Allah was not spelled with a capital they dismissed it???

Surely this was not the sole reason!! A small 'a' rather than a capital 'A'? A typo? This is too scary to think about. It reminds me of one of the questions for determining whether you get to step foot in our country: "Are you planning on participating in any terrorist activity? Yes or no?

With so much information on this, I'm glad to see that some of you have already determined this is a "non-threat" and isn't credible.

Must be nice to have the world figured out and placed in little tiny boxes inside your heads'.


Well when no schools in NY blow up, and then subsequently no schools in LA blow up, and no bombs are found in any of them -- will you concede that some people are smarter than you?

Not ONLY that, but yes that. We are talking about people who blow themselves up to honor "Allah" -- then get on their knees every day, what is it, 3 times a day for Allah -- they would never disrespect him in that way -- this is Criminal Psych and Sociology, and is real science -- not to mention this is just ONE example of the many. It's clear it's just a hoax to get a reaction. I don't think in the history of ever was a Terrorist Threat made without leveraging for a specific outcome, like the release of a political prisoner, or extortion, or escape from a captive situation, has a terroristic threat come to pass. Real terrorists act, not puff up their chests. They blow stuff up AND THEN take credit for it.

Terrorists don't email threats. They just do it. They don't want you warned.
I knew this when I was in high school back in the 90's and we got our annual bomb threats. We were just stoked to get out of class.

What the hell has this got to do with anyone being "smarter" than anyone else? Seriously!

So I guess that when the day comes that one of these threats turns out to be credible, you'll bathe in the blood of those killed without any emotion, huh?

No, let me guess. You'll blame it on "the west" and "the CIA" and "false flags"...and then you'll go on to tell us how it's all "made up" and "faked".

Some of you f'n people, man.

..........
What is it that you propose they do when there is a threat being made? Just ignore it and go on about the day? Do you realize the fallout if any of these threats were credible? (Don't answer that, it's rhetorical...when directed at your ilk anyways.....you'll just blame "the west")

Some of you need to open your doors, and get off the freakin' internet for a while!

Great plan....or something.





As far as getting the media to stop crying wolf all the time, you got me.


Pretty sure it was public officials, not the media, that brought this to attention and made the decisions here...but, um...yeah, ok.
I won't disagree about them crying wolf...but you seem to believe that crying wolf means there is no threat and that just isn't the case. There are those of us who realize there are MANY enemies, and they don't all stand at one "gate"....one day, you'll realize the same...or not.




They whip the terror and anti muslim rhetoric into an inferno, shame on them.


I won't disagree with that....I see the media much like Oliver Stone portrayed the media in NBK...so...

To me, it's got nothing to do with being "anti muslim"....Islamo-fascists are not "muslims", not in my eyes anyways.




SB is the only "Muslim" shooting this year, I think.


Yeah, the rest is just "workplace violence", amirite?

Are you sure about that, or are you just feeding on the media teet on that one?




When I was younger I had a police scanner


Amazing.


So did I.

It depends on where you live. In my area, such is reported often, even if not credible....but then again, I live in BFE.




Best not to get too many people too excited, unless they are promoting an agenda, you think?


OOOhhh...nice way to end that post.

What "agenda" would that be, in this case? Prudence? Abundance of caution?
These aren't full grown adults able to take care of themselves we are talking about here....it's children.

The day that one of these threats is credible...I swear to God...I am going to be all over the asses of your ilk, and you.
You WILL have blood on your hands...and you do.
What "agenda" are you pushing?

"The west is the only threat"......"it's all fake unless the west did it"....blah blah blah blah blah.
Seriously, it's people like you that have allowed me to see through the facade of the bs that conspiracy nuts spew all day, every day. So, I guess, thanks....for smacking me into realizing that it works both ways.

As a parent, I would rather my kids miss a day of school then have the slightest threat of this happening.
