Posted on 09/17/2012 9:51:12 AM PDT by LadyEleanor
A bomb threat has been reported on the #LSU campus. Please evacuate the campus as calmly and quickly as possible.
I wonder who had an assignment due today.
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.
Has anyone noticed a pattern?
Wait till its a big campus like UCLA or UofM
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”.
Must be those darned Amish again....

Very little reporting as to the callers last week, I am very curious if this is a test of our systems or hungover students.
Sounds to me like a desensitization campaign.
Gun-free zones? Or Obumbler’s malleable “folks”?
Terrorism at it's best.
“Sigh. I bet theyre soon going to be doing this every 15 minutes at different universities and public facilities across the country.”
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.
LSU is a large university with 29k students - a bit larger than UCLA
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.
Catch the guy and introduce him to Mike the Tiger.
Careful of those parked cars.
Prayers for the safety of your daughter.
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.
It ain’t going to help Tidesters, you are still going to have to play the Tigers on Nov. 3rd. :-))
Good points, I was of wondering the same thing.
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.
We have a winner!
Domestic terrorists should have their day in court. The convicted ones should be speedily executed on television.
a bomb threat isn’t breaking news?
...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).
“Hey...Ahkmed,,anybody see you come into dem swamp?”
“maybe nobody see you come out too”
LSU-BR is a MASSIVE campus.
The current “Mike” is a big pu$$y cat.
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.
Well said. Good planning.
That is a good point tho I personally would be worried about a football game.
I suspect a USC fan.
Not at all unlikely. I’d never thought of that. I hope we have a back-up election plan.
I’m sick of Muslims. They do nothing but destroy and disrupt.

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?
Just now? I’ve been sick of the two-faced uncivilized bastards since 2001.
He'd make a nice tasty morsel for Albert in a few weeks.
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.
You mean “Mr. Gator” ?
Since you are a FL Gators fan. :)
