Thread: Bomb threat across the street

  1. #1

    Default Bomb threat across the street

    There is a bomb threat at a Carl's Jr. restaurant across the street from my work. Several blocks are blocked off by the police. The told us to stay away from the windows facing west. My office has a wall of windows facing west. I hope it's just an empty threat. I certainly don't want the windows to shatter and cover me with glass. Scary times.

    Updated: 2:28 PM- A small suitcase with a trumpet inside led to the evacuation of a downtown fast-food restaurant and the immediate area this afternoon.
    Somebody came across the green case near a Carl's Jr. restaurant, at 75 E. 200 South, about 11:40 a.m. and called police to report a suspicious package. Police evacuated the area, clearing cars and pedestrians, and a bomb squad robot detonated the package about 2 p.m.,said police Sgt. Rich Brede.
    Police discovered what was left a trumpet after the case was shredded.
    The exercise highlights an important lesson for people in public areas, Brede said: "If you leave something somewhere please tell police."

    Glad that's all it was Juris.

    Why would anyone blow up or threaten to blow up a Carl's Jr

    Lest we think this is something new, I remember once around 1977, sitting in an executive cabinet meeting in the NYC Department of Social Services. The door opened and officers in bomb suits came in telling us not to move. They brought in two bomb sniffing dogs to sniff everything in the room. It took several minutes to determine the room was clear. When they left, we finished the meeting as if nothing had happened. Strange times. It made evacuations feel so much tamer.

    Because they forgot to hold the pickles, and didn't give me extra ketchup. Theys gots to pay!
    What its prominence suggest, and what all science confirms is that the dog is a creature of the nose- A. Horowitz.
