    Lance has a point. However, with the building empty except for people sworn to keep their individual and aggregate mouths sealed. With 3.5 hours who was in there and who might be in the court house soon? With 17 to 21 security professionals it didn’t take 3.5 hours. In that time, the bomb would have been activated and there would have been a whole into the ground.

    Probably some neglected pervert who isn’t getting the attention he deserves. Some other crazy pedophile sex fiend rapist or judge beat him to get media attention.

    From experience, Over 3.5 hours with that many personnel already inside is way too long to be just a sweep in a bomb threat. This report was yet another Cut and Paste report. What was really going on?
