A bomb threat has been reported on the #LSU campus. Please evacuate the campus as calmly and quickly as possible.

My fear is that these ‘fake’ bomb threats are being done to watch the evacuation response. And that someone is watching to determine the best means of attack.

It’s a common tactic, fake threat to create a response, use response to fake attack to plan best means of attack.

I notied that the first two fake threats were called in universities withing easy driving distance to a porous border. That is what first activated my JDLR detector.

My wife got a call from our oldest who attends LSU. I’m going to have a talk with her, and tell her if there is another threat, and she is inside a building, to stay where she is. Or if she is outside, or forced to evacuate, do not follow the crowd. Evacuate in a direction that others are not going. And to try to head in a direction that has lots of cover - trees, cars, buildings...

When people evacuate, they don’t tend to have an idea of where to go, so they end up simply following those in front of them. This leads to large streams of people, and these would be ideal places to attack. A bomb in a building might be able to kill a dozen people, but a man with an automatic weapon, positioned inside a stream of evacuating students could kill hundreds. And multiple attackers with overlaping fields of fire could cause that number to grow exponentially.

I hope that there are people (government intelligence) looking through security videos to see if there was anyone surveilling the evacuation.

Let me guess, these are all areas where Homeland Security ammo dumps are located. Every union members get a free rifle!

“I wonder who had an assignment due today.”

If this would be the day before the ‘bama game then I would wonder which lowlife ‘bama fan did this.

Probably more pranks but might be dry runs up to the real thing.

I still can’t believe UT Austin opened the campus up after just 3 hours of searching for a bomb last week.

Just wait until election Day when they phone these threats into the middle/high schools hosting the polling stations, especially if the polls are looking bad for Bozo

We have a winner!

Domestic terrorists should have their day in court. The convicted ones should be speedily executed on television.

You make several good points, something we should all keep in mind if we ever find ourselves amongst a large group of people facing a threat like this.

...do not follow the crowd. Evacuate in a direction that others are not going. And to try to head in a direction that has lots of cover - trees, cars, buildings...

My first thought was that parking lots are easy assembly places for evacuees, but also a perfect place for a car bomb(s).

They’ll go after “soft targets” first. Schools, hospitals, offices, shopping malls, nursing homes etc. Even Ft Hood proved itself a “soft target” with so many unarmed US Soldiers. Imagine what’ll happen to thousands of students/shoppers/patients etc fleeing if a terrorist w/ automatic weapon opens-up on them.
