A bomb threat was reported Monday on LSU’s Baton Rouge campus and the university sent out a text alert asking everyone to “evacuate as calmly and quickly as possible.” The alert said to check lsu.edu for updates.

The reporters gathered for LSU Coach Les Miles’ weekly press conference also were asked to leave the school’s athletic administration building.

Sigh. I bet they’re soon going to be doing this every 15 minutes at different universities and public facilities across the country.

There’s never anything there, but they know that the buildings have to be evacuated anyway, just in case.

And maybe, sometime just to prove their bona fides, they’ll actually manage to plant a bomb that will go off.

There has been a bunch of fake bomb threats called in to colleges, (and high schools) since the Muslim rioting began.

So the Muslim riots have come to the USA via “bomb threats”.

Very little reporting as to the callers last week, I am very curious if this is a test of our systems or hungover students.

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!

Texas (Friday) is a rather large campus. (Texas is currently #5 in enrollment, just behind Minnesota in the rankings. LSU is 134th in enrollment.

Just about the time they quit responding to all these false reports, there will be a real bomb and it will start all over again.

I wouldn’t alert say, as an example, a ME country that I am going to shower dozens of neutron bombs down on them.
I’d just go ahead and do it.

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.

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.

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.

IIRC, that is exactly what happened in the terror attacks at the train station and hotels in Mumbai a few years ago. I am sorry to say it, but that could easily happen here!

Someone asked if we see a pattern developing, and mentioned that the first two were close to borders. North Dakota and Texas. One thing I noticed is, coincidence or not, ND, TX and LA are all red states that will vote for Romney. (They are also heavy, heavy oil and gas states.)

Just a couple things I noticed. Any thoughts?

I sense this is going to happen more and more likely as we get close to another election and even afterwards. So do not be surprised if it, the bomb and other threats are going to happen all the more.
