Bomb threats against 24 Tennessee courthouses force evacuations across the state
Quote :
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Bomb threats forced the evacuation of 24 courthouses across Tennessee Tuesday morning, including the federal building in Memphis, but authorities who are investigating said no devices were found.


Quote :
The West Tennessee counties that received threats were Carroll, Crockett, Decatur, Hardeman, Hardin, Chester and Shelby. The Middle Tennessee counties affected were Cheatham, Clay, Franklin and Giles. The East Tennessee counties that received threats were Anderson, Bledsoe, Blount, Campbell, Carter, Claiborne, Cumberland, Fentress, Grainger, Greene, Hamblen, Hamilton and Hancock.

Quote :
Monday's telephoned bomb threats to courthouses in 27 of Oregon's 36 counties — including Jackson County — will be investigated individually despite their apparent ties to each other and similar recent hoaxes in two other states.

The Oregon State Police's Criminal Investigation Division and the Oregon Judicial Department are involved in coordinating a review of the phone threats to determine their connection to each other and to similar threat sprees Nov. 15 in Washington state and Nov. 2 in Nebraska, the OSP said Tuesday.

Quote :

4:45 p.m. update: Police road blocks from around the Chelan County Courthouse have been removed and courthouse employees and visitors are being escorted into the building to retrieve personal items, said Sgt. Jim West of the Wenatchee Police Department.

The investigation into an afternoon bomb scare at the courthouse will continue into the evening, said West, but the main courthouse building has been tentatively cleared of threats while officers and maintenance crews search through offices of the adjacent sheriff's department.

Quote :

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Courthouses and government offices across Oregon were evacuated Monday following bomb threats that resembled similar incidents in other states this month, authorities said.
Seventeen courthouses were targeted along with a Salem office building that houses the headquarters for the Oregon State Police.

Unsure what is up with all these threats but someone is doing this. Hope they get caught ! I pray nothing happens or comes of this...ever!
Too, I hope they never get lax , letting their guard down, thinking the threat ONLY a threat and nothing more when there is a life threatening situation at hand! Remember the little boy who cried wolf when there was nothing to his cry ... no one tends to listen anymore. So just because nothing is found other times ---one should always stay on their toes in case!!

Man, too...just to think of having the job of defusing one of those babies if one is found: That's one job I would be too chicken to do!! but Thank God for those who risk their lives for others ...- appreciate all you guys! You are brave souls, indeed!

Anyway, this was news to me.
Wonder what is happening here ...Who is behind this? Thank God so far... All is ok!

Stay safe -keep alerted , all!

Anything happening in your area?

Crazy. I wonder if it could be some terrorist network playing games without real bombs. Bomb threats can be just as disruptive to our society as real bombs. Imagine the confusion and crisis the police must have felt with that many calls. One must also wonder if maybe they were intentionally putting the focus on this while something else went down. When something big happens you have to look out for the backdoor crimes that take place. Who knows could just be a group of disgruntled citizens with too much time on their hands. Or it could even be the government just trying to keep the fear alive so people will continue to relenquish their rights in the name of safety.

Makes me wonder too . Good post , Grunt. I agree . One never knows the intention of one's motivations. Distract, disrupt while something else totally happening quietly behind the scenes could very well be too. Doubt it is just a bunch of disgruntled citizens though. Your latter statement could even be so at that!

While I am at it . ...Scammers are phoning -"targetting" only Tennessean's, it appears by this phone # : 212-000-0005
DO NOT ANSWER.
Any # with 000 as a prefix is not legit .. Be alert and do NOT answer.

Explosive news - This may not be a court house but it IS a federal building -

Device explodes at Ariz. Social Security office

Thankfully, this explosion was before working hours , no one was present or hurt!
Strange about - and how they have a suspect in hand so quickly though. Awaiting the rest of the news on that...
