By BI: You probably didn’t hear about it on your local evening newscast. But the threat that shut down every school in Los Angeles was a hoax that allegedly was written by an angry Muslim student. Hardly anyone is reporting this and the very few who do bury it in the text. (Read the original email threat below)
More than 640,000 children were ordered to stay home after the district’s superintendent received an email from a self-professed extremist jidahi threatening to attack schools with nerve gas, bombs, and rifles.
CBS According to LAPD Chief Charlie Beck, the email was delivered from Frankfurt, Germany. However, the origin of the document is believed to have been sent through a router in the U.S. The author of the email — who claimed to be a Muslim, former LAUSD student who teamed up with a Jihadist cell — used a device to mask the location of where the email originated.
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
I am emailing you to inform you of the happenings on Tuesday, 12/15/15.
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.
UK Daily Mail An almost identical email was sent to school officials in New York City, but the Mayor and NYPD Police Commissioner declined to take the same action. LA police, school boards, and politicians even stuck by their decision after New York officials highlighted major flaws in the email – such as the misspelling of ‘Allah’ with a lowercase ‘a’.
It has also been revealed the writer of the message claimed he joined a ‘jihadi cell’ after he’d been bullied and rejected from ‘one of the district’s high schools’.
The threatening 360-word email sent to the New York City school superintendent warned that schools would be attacked with pressure cooker bombs, nerve agents and machine guns. It claimed the writer and ‘138 comrades’ would carry out the attack. Students ‘at every school in the New York City school district will be massacred, mercilessly. And there is nothing you can do to stop it,’ the message said.
Los Angeles police and Congressman Brad Sherman, D-California, told ABC that the Los Angeles threat contained some differences to that sent to New York He said there was a graphic reference to explosives hidden in the body of a female suicide bomber.
