All schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District are closed today

Due to a threat contained in an email sent to a member of the school board, the Superintendent of Schools has closed all schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District today. This involves more than 640,000 students at more than 900 schools. The schools will remain closed until police have searched every school.

More information will be available at a press conference in about an hour.

  1. Here’s a copy of the text of the message:

    Something big is going down. Something very big. It will make national headlines. Perhaps, even international ones. You see, my last 4 years here at one of the district high schools has been absolute hell. Pure, unmitigated, agony. The bullying, the loneliness, the rejection… it is never-ending. And for what? Just because I’m ‘different’?

    No. No more. I am a devout Muslim, and was once against violence, but I have teamed up with a local jihadist cell as it is the only way I’ll be able to accomplish my massacre the correct way. I would not be able to do it alone. Me, and my 32 comrades, will die tomorrow in the name of Allah. Every school in the L.A. Unified district is being targeted. We have bombs hidden in lockers already at several schools. They are strategically placed and are meant to crumble the foundations of the very buildings that monger so much hate and discrimination. They are pressure cooker bombs, hidden in backpacks around the schools. They are loaded with 20 lbs. of gunpowder, for maximum damage. They will be detonated via Cell Phone. Not only are there bombs, but there are nerve gas agents set to go off at a specific time: during lunch hour. To top it off, my brothers in Allah and I have Kalashnikov rifles, Glock 18 Machine pistols, and multiple handheld grenades. The students at every school in the L.A. Unified district will be massacred, mercilessly. And there is nothing you can do to stop it.

    If you do end up trying to, by perhaps, beefing up security, or canceling classes for the day, it won’t matter. Your security will not be able to stop us. We are an army of Allah. If you cancel classes, the bombings will take place regardless, and we will bring our guns to the streets and offices of Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Bakersfield, and San Diego.

    I wish you the best luck. It is time to pray to allah, as this may be your last day.

    Lakeland FL schools also rec’d a threat. School canceled for the day

  3. The threats were similar, but not identical. Threats were purportedly from a former student senior who had been a victim of bullying for 4 years. He had a small army in place that had placed bombs assault rifles and guns in schools. However, the writer did not capitalize the ‘A’ in Allah.

    Threat emailed from via an ISP in Frankfurt, Germany.

    These threats seem so ridiculous. ISIS does not usually give a heads up. Perfect timing though. GOP can harp on it during debate. If Donald Trump is elected president I will be filing paperwork with Canada to become an American Refugee.

  5. NYC received the same threat and deemed it not credible.

    Wow, I wonder how President Obama managed to do THAT!!! Or was it Hillary Clinton from her private e-mail account? We’ll have to call on Donald Trump to fly out to LA and take care of that crisis; he’s the only one with the balls to help us, now! He can clear tall buildings with a single bound, bankrupt casinos without breaking a sweat, make America great again…

    Unbelievable……lets kill the kids……….yep, that speaks volumes about these people. I guess it says in the Terrorist Handbook something like

    “Never pick on someone who is armed and can fight back”
