This happened: We had multiple false reports of school shootings today. Green Bay, Kenosha, Milwaukee, even Oshkosh had to deal with this swatting insanity.
The problem is, this doesn’t feel like a prank or a joke. This feels like a test run, like the raptors testing the electric fence in Jurassic Park. This feels like someone is planning something–something seriously bad–and they’re trying to see if they can confuse the police enough to maximize the damage and casualties.
As I told Prime earlier today, this is probably how any major civil unrest will start: a bogus report of an attack on one side of town, an actual terrorist attack on the opposite.
I spent most of today on high alert, while trying to fight off a panic attack. I’m not a student, I don’t have children, but there was a sense of dread hanging over me throughout the day. Like I was waiting for the next terrible thing to happen.
I have been feeling that sense of dread since January 6th. It hasn’t gotten much better.
Honestly, I don’t know if it ever will.
