Bomb threat at Knoxville Jr. High
This is in Knoxville, Illinois.
There have been rumors of threats having been made at a number of different schools in the region, most of which have a student population of somewhere upwards of 300 yet under 1500. I suspect it's the usual adolescent jackassery, but in this day and age, we can't count on every idiot being merely a prankster. After all, between the ages of 12 and 25 are the most volatile years in a person's life, and teens do have (a) a tendency toward extreme behaviors -- including violence -- and (b) access to a whole lot of information on how to do large damage. And, after all, Columbine High School was, if I recall, one of the largest schools to suffer its sort of harm.
I'll be interested in seeing what kind of coverage the investigation gets by the local media.
