My brother is going back to college right now, and last night we received an e-mail from the college that a " non-specific " threat was written about on a bathroom wall. Something would happen on 4/24. This morning they sent him another e-mail that police security was checking everyone's bags, and to plan for extra time.
He has to go in early anyways to work on a powerpoint presentation, and then his one class for the day is in the very building the threat was written in. Of course the entire campus is on lockdown. I suggested he just stay home, but he went anyways. Hoping nothing happens, and it was most likely a prank, but I do not think if they find this person, they will be laughing.
Most days we complain about government, taxes etc. Times like this, and the Boston bombings that you stop and say sometimes government is useful. While I would just stay away, the police are working directly in harm's way to prevent others from being harmed, and we should stop and thank them more often.
