Kids in Los Angeles had a day off from school today after someone called in a bomb threat to the Los Angeles Unified School District.
The second largest school district in the nation was one of two school districts to receive the threat (the other one was NYC).
New York held classes. Los Angeles canceled.
According to Latest.com, “The person who apparently wrote the threat reportedly referred to himself as an ‘extremist Muslim jihadists’ who was ‘tired of being bullied’ and claimed to have an ‘army’ of more than 30 people armed with assault rifles and pistols.”
It is unknown if the person who issued the threat has any ties to Muslim extremist groups or if he is just an asshole trolling the schools.
The FBI and local police are currently tracking down the threat which was routed from Germany but may have come from much closer to home.
