False calls about active shooters and bomb threats are up across the nation. There seems to be some patterns and indicators that they are coming from overseas - Africa, with some directly linked to an Ethiopian ip address. Who and why? This appears organized and technologically adept.
We are puzzled on my little island about a recent phone call to a local elementary school saying there was a bomb placed there which would go off after school. Didn't make a lot of sense, the school was searched, no bomb found and the caller was taken into custody.
Seems no particular reason for the bomb threat, and the fact that it was supposed to explode after school was out for the day was curious. Just instills fear into the students and teachers for no reason. Puzzling. This doesn't seem to be connected to anyone overseas, but we are in the middle of the sea, so there is that.
