This is sad what is this world coming to. I mean the world is not going to end!! People in this world need a serious wake up call. When i was little i used to be able to walk out my house with no problems and not have to worry. But now i have a 10 month old and when he grows up imagine what this world is going to be like. We as parents need to stick together and make this world a better place. People need to realize what is right and what is wrong.

Fortunately the vast majority of these kinds of threats are false alarms. Idiots seeking a momentary thrill are usually the culprits. The media needs to take a hard look at publicizing such events. The lack of attention will help the problem go away. People found guilty of these crazy stunts should be put away and throw away the keys.
