I live in Vermont... last week the Essex School District (6 different schools) went on
administrator at Essex High School received a threatening phone call. Apparently someone claimed to be armed and that they were going to come to the
school. The Bomb Squad was called, FBI is investigating, Federal Agents and fully-militarized police descended on the area to protect against the
On Wednesday of this
week, I was driving around the state visiting High Schools and Tech. Centers for my job. I get to South Burlington High
school, and hit the intercom button to get in, and no one comes to the door. 2 minutes later the place is swarming with cops, one of them yells at me
asking where my vehicle is and demands that I "get out now". I must have arrived right around the time they were going into lockdown.
There was a "credible threat" in the form of an email, many administrators received it. It prompted the school lockdown followed by an early
Then yesterday (Thursday), South Burlington received a follow-up threat in the form of an Email where someone shares their

, the person making these threats is upset that South Burlington High School's mascot is being
changed from "The Rebels" to something else...
The more recent email threat (redacted):
My other threat was only a test. I stood across the Street and saw you evacuating. great job. Now I got to see what students I can kill. I’ve
already hacked into your students emails and servers to see who. You all can keep thinking it’s a “low risk.” I can already be inside your
building right now. I have access to all students and teacher information. check out the murder list. I’m watching you all.
SBHS MURDER LIST
Teacher to kill: [5 names listed]
Students to kill: [11 names listed]
THIS COULD’VE BEEN PREVENTED FROM KEEPING THE REBEL NAME. NOW I’m gonna have to attack you all. I don’t care for my own life as long as you’re
all dead!!!!! Sincerely,
The 2nd email is alarming, as the person identifies specific individuals they want to target, and says they were "watching from across the street
when the school evacuated" (I wonder if this psycho saw me in the parking lot when I was getting shooed away by the cops, sketchy!). They even
mention the reasons they want to target some people - one of the students listed was being targeted because "they spoke about the lockdown on the
It would appear that the threats in South Burlington are coming from a different source than those made toward Essex last week. Authorities have not
publicly released any updates and the suspect from Essex is presumed to still be at large (as is the person threatening South Burlington).
South Burlington High School will be
today, Friday, due to the repeated (and apparently 'credible' threats).
There is also a Youtube Video circulating with someone who has their face blurred out, and their voice altered, who is supposedly the person making
the threats. This video was originally emailed to individuals in the South Burlington School System, and has since been forwarded to the
Similar issues have also been going on in California, Colorado, and Indiana:
Also, thinking back last month (and earlier in the year) there were something like 80 Jewish Centers that received bomb threats and other threats, in
11 different states (or more).
It makes me wonder if similar-minded pathological individuals saw the reaction from these threats earlier in the year and have found a way to feel
"special" (if they feel at all). It sucks that someone is probably getting a huge rise out of this and these events will likely continue, the
publicity and media coverage will probably only make it worse.
Anyway, I thought I'd share this since I just discovered it's not just Vermont that is experiencing these types of threats & lockdowns.
If you've had any local incidents like this please share whatever you can - it would be nice to look for any other patterns or if perpetrators have
been caught in other states. Thanks ATS.
