[su_right_ad]Johnston, Rhode Island police received an anonymous letter claiming planned beheadings in three state elementary schools.

On Wednesday, officials said that the letter stated that a “beheading is planned” in three cities: Johnston, Warwick, and Cranston.

The letter stated that the beheadings would reportedly be carried out at some point between Wednesday and Friday of this week.

On Wednesday, parents were notified by telephone and email that there was a threat in their community.

Many parents chose not to send their children to school. In fact, Inquisitr reports that at least one-third of Cranston students were absent from school; 40% of students in Johnston stayed home…

As a heightened security measure, elementary school children in all three cities will have indoor recess and gym. Furthermore, all school doors will be locked throughout the day, and an I.D. will be required to gain entry. Police officers, both undercover and uniformed, will reportedly be present in elementary schools for the remainder of the week.[su_csky_ad]

    This sure sounds like a terroristic threat with virtually no chance of it actually happening. I hope they catch whoever did this and make an example out of them. So wrong.

    It would appear that isis has managed to do very important things here, inspiring idiots to make terrorist threats and frightening low information members of the public. jmo

    Our “brave” nation… now, I understand the need for those large McMansions. People need extra large closets to hide in for the rest of their lives.

    This is what comes of media-mediated hysteria. Let’s just show the ISIS beheadings over and over and over again and use them for partisan purposes, because, like, there’s no such thing as “copycat” criminality.

      IT is unjustfiable hysteria but I think it’s bipartisan hysteria as both parties love to cause hysteria. I was really disappointed to see the beheadings make front page news every single time because that is exactly where ISIS wanted them.

        if the media gets ahold of news, regardless how disturbing it may be, especially when it involves WAR, it will be printed period.
