My Turn: Bomb Threats

PEARL, MS (Mississippi News Now) - Someone called in a bomb threat to the Pearl Wal-Mart Sunday. Apparently they didn't get the word on how serious bomb threats are taken.

Two young men are facing up to 10 years jail time and up to a $10,000 fine for a series of false bomb threats to Clinton High School. In the past year there has been a rash of bomb threats to courthouses, schools and businesses.

These bomb threats result in costly disruptions and needlessly divert law enforcement resources. After events like the Oklahoma City, the World Trade Center and Boston Marathon bombings threats must be taken seriously.

The morons who call in these bomb threats should spend some time in jail and pay restitution. Our country is in no mood for this kind of prank.
