BREAKING NEWS: Bomb threat at the U

University of Minnesota, MINNEAPOLIS - Eight buildings on the East Bank of the University of Minnesota have been evacuated as a result of a bomb threat found in a bathroom.

Taken from the University Website
Building Evacuations on East Bank

All employees working in any of the buildings listed below are required to leave the building and will be dismissed from work for the remainder of the day with pay.

Employees scheduled to work evenings or night shifts in these buildings should report to their normal reporting sites in Mechanical Engineering and Scott Hall.

Unless notified otherwise all employees should report to work as usual on Thursday.

Kohltoff Hall, Smith Hall, Fraiser Hall, Science Classroom Building, Walter Library, Johnston Hall, Morrill Hall, Appleby Hall.


I have class on the opposite side of the mall right now and I am not going. It is always better to be safe than sorry. If you have a class in Tate, Ford, Murphy, Lind, or even on to the CSci building, or the Biology building - I say do not go. Call your friends, make sure they're somewhere safe, and stay safe yourself.

I'm more along the lines of "What the fuck" myself. Something like, "What the fuck is wrong with people these days?"

It is where I go. And no, nothing has happened. The note found said certain buildings were supposed to explode at 10 p.m., but they searched the area and found nothing.

Overreaction?

Someone just didn't want to take a test. That's all bomb threats at schools
ever are.

I'm not saying the U overreacted; they did what policy deemed they do. I'm saying freaking out about telling people not to go to class and callin' around and making sure nobody exploded is kind of overreacting.

Overreacting?

Listen up, white boy. Not all bomb threats are jokes. When I was living in Wisconsin there was one at a neighboring highschool and they actually found it, so don't be so dismissive.

Secondly, until you've lost a multitude of friends to stupid bullshit, don't tell me that being concerned and protective is overreacting.

I didn't tell everyone not to go to class. People near the area shouldn't go. There are two other sections of Campus, West Bank and St. Paul that I didn't even mention. It's not like I said close down the entire campus omfg.

I say call your friends because that's how I found out about it. I have class solid from 9-6:30 almost every day. I couldn't have checked my e-mail. I didn't know. It's not a crime to look out for you and yours. It's not overreacting to make sure the people you care about know and are being cautious.
