Think back to last month and the attack on the Navy reserve office……4 people died at scene and one died later…….I know a lot has happened since then but does anyone remember this incident?
About a week later a warning was issued that there were threats to other military installations and the military went on alert……the report said there was nothing specific but that chatter had been picked up and it was not good……….recall that?
At the time that the warning was issued I was suspicious of the timing of the warning…….a little too coincidental for my liking. I recall that there was at least one person that thought I was a bit too cynical…..and I got a tongue lashing……
A news report has come out about the incident……..
MARIETTA, Ga — A National Guard soldier was arrested for filing a false report of a threat that took social media by storm and created fear among local military personnel.
Cobb County police said the threat to the lives of soldiers was a hoax.
Brett Downing, 23, of Cumming, filed the alleged report of a terroristic threat against American soldiers on July 21, 2015. Two weeks later he admitted he made it up.
Downing is an information technology specialist with the National Guard.
He claimed he found a note underneath his windshield wiper after he left work at a private company in Marietta. He told police he believed he was targeted in the parking lot of the business because his car has Army Reservist plates.
The type-written note said this:
dear american soldier,
death to you coward women child killer and all of the american military. mohammed will show no mercy on you
attacks will come full force
death is to come to you
According to an arrest warrant obtained by 11 Alive News, Downing was re-interviewed on August 4th. According to the warrant “during the interview he admitted to manufacturing the letter/note and falsely reporting a crime.”
It is stupidity like this that keeps Americans lathered up and spouting crap they have NO idea about……….so I will utter the three most beautiful words in the English language……..TOLD YOU SO!
