    Re: BREAKING NEWS...Story County Courthouse being evacuated (LINK)

    How do I put this delicately without sounding insensitive - when was the last time a bomb threat actually turned out to be a bomb?

    But you have to take it seriously. You don't want to assume it's a hoax and then have the place blow up with people inside.

    If they were taking it that seriously they would have evacuated the county jail as well. Unless the tip they recieved told them what the size of the 2 bombs in the place are.

    They're doing the most minimal reaction they can get away with.

    Exactly. If you don't take it seriously, how do you live with yourself the time it was serious?

    Re: BREAKING NEWS...Story County Courthouse being evacuated (LINK)

    When they find who caused this (hoax or not) they need to send them a bill for the lost productivity of employees, and for the cost of searching/securing the building. We (the law-abiding public) should not have to pay for some idiot somewhere to do this.

    I'm pretty sure the sheriff would be paying this loser a visit.

    You have to take such threats seriously, but we don't have to draw our attention to it. That's all these people want is to make a splash, why indulge them. As for the jail. It would be next to impossible for anyone to get a bomb into the jail, and I'm sure that is probably the first area they checked.
