Not 1, Not 2 but many. Maybe it’s just kids being ignorant kids but the conspiracy theorist in me has to ask, is there an entity out there assessing how the police and the community will react ?
When I read the title I was wondering if you had an issue with Thai food or the Thai language:)
Would be curious to track down all these threats. Think the most likely causes would be kids trying to get out of tests, kids trying to see how much chaos they can cause for hahas, or anti self defense people trying to drum up fear.
Hope they catch the callers. It’s just not funny or effective regardless of their goals and pulls a lot of resources away from actual emergencies.
Fixed, now I’m heading over to Mali Thai for green Curry with chicken and shrimp…
I didn’t read much butI think it is a good idea. It is one way to get the police where they are needed.
I may have missed something, but when you say “it” is one way to get the police where they are needed, what is “it” referring to?
Well I guess if enough people keep calling in enough fake active shooter reports there is a slight chance the police luckily show up at a school just before an actual shooting event starts??
Think it is more likely though that all the police will be stuck responding to fake calls and won’t be able to get to a real one in time.
The same in Pittsburgh.
My neighbor’s grand kid was in lock down in Hopewell Senior High School this morning.
They also reported 1 hr lock down in Bellefonte Area High School.
Pennsylvania State Police are investigating at least two more hoax 911 calls.
this is f#$^&*@ unbelievable.
Personally I’m not sure this is the work of kids. It seems to be very widespread and orchestrated to a degree that makes me think the system is either being tested, or there is deliberate fear mongering.
I think those possibilities should be considered. But in the age of TikTok and other internet challenges wide spread instances of people doing the same stupid crap are pretty common these days.
It also introduces the boy that cried wolf scenario
Just sayin’…a dozen or hundreds or even thousands of teenagers across the country doing the same thing the same day requires no more coordination or orchestration than access to a cell phone and probably 10 minutes or so for a singular start point message to cross the country and back several times over.
Not saying it wasn’t kids just that there are other possibilities and for some reason this thing has a very spidey sense going off in my head and the back of my neck. I usually don’t get that there is something else going on feeling but this time I do and I can’t explain it so I guess I should just leave it alone for now.
I agree 100%. Something just doesn’t smell right…
I also read about this happening in PA, this AM.
We all get barraged with scam calls – you know, the guys with a heavy Indian accent claiming to be from Medicare or Window IT or representing some bogus LE charity. When you report these calls to authorities (I’ve filed more than 200 reports with the FCC and FTC), they will claim that they cannot trace the calls, and so, the scammers continue unprosecuted. It looks like the scams have moved down market to kids making prank calls to get out of school.
If they had trained armed security in schools, this wouldnt be an issue.
Ideally the LEOs would have a quick way to communicate with the trained and armed security to assess if the threat they received was real or not.
That and what happened the other day may have been stopped.
That can certainly be done.
I used to work “security” (in name only, think observe and report) and we had radios on a channel for us “security” folks. Also, the university’s police department dispatch had one. It could put us right to dispatch who was then right to the officers, but we didn’t hear anything special or privileged or sensitive or any of that because it was separate. It also didn’t bog down actual officers with us talking about who was being too loud in the library or whatever inane crap because dispatch was the go-between
The vegetable has already stated that his handler’s are not interested in doing anything to stop this kind of thing. Only thing “on the table”, according to pudding-brain is “assault weapon ban!!!”
I tried to warn you not to in there after I dropped a load. You said you could handle it and was a man. Sorry I didn’t tell you the day before I ate pickled egg and drank a six pack of PBR.
