    I cannot imagine what kind of threat would get them to do such a huge response like this. It must have seemed like a very credible threat. This is going to cost them millions to search every campus.

    It was not to one school, two schools or three schools, but to many schools," Cortines said. "It was 'to students at school.'"

    And unfortunately, I think that these type of threats will continue.
    What a sad world we live in.
    I am glad that the schools are closed. This could save many many lives considering they believe it to be a "credible" threat.
    IMOO.

    I heard just a few parts of the live press conference. It was an electronic threat reported by some students. Must have been very credible for them to close the whole school district. The article I posted in the Breaking News thread said the search of the schools will cover 720 sq. miles!

    School bomb threats have been around since I was a kid, but in today's atmosphere, better safe than sorry.

    If this was some dumb kid that was just trying to get out of finals, I hope he will be severely punished.

    The "messaged" threat against was received electronically and mentioned backpacks and other packages, Superintendent Ramon Cortines said at a morning news conference. He described the nature of the threat as "unspecified."

    Earlier, another LAPD official described it to KTLA as a "terror threat."

    Cortines characterized the threat as "rare," and said it was directed to "students at schools."

    He added it was made to "many schools,

    Yesterday was the third anniversary of the shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, CT. Locally, a high school and neighboring elementary school were placed on lockdown while LE investigated threats to two nearby businesses. The individual who made the alleged threats was taken into custody, and the lockdowns ended in the early afternoon.
