Today when we came to school, they checked all of our student ID's. For people who parked in the parking lot, they asked to see school ID's and licenses. As I mentioned yesterday, the school formally says that a string of universities received bomb threats yesterday. And while this is completely true, there is also a rumor that our very own financial aid office received a bomb threat.
Not to make light of the situation, but no one would be surprised if this were true. I could just imagine the police investigation Law & Order Style:
Police- Is there anyone who you have had issues with? Anyone who would want to hurt you?
Financial Aid Office- The vast majority of students at the law school.
There were also police officers stationed outside our law school today: Pedestrian Safety Awareness Month! Just like at UCLA, police were handing out tickets to students who were jaywalking. I was going to say that it's less serious than the bomb threats, but not according to this funny sign with a sobering message (A pedestrian is killed every 3.5 minutes in American). I really need to return to my pre-DC days where I never jaywalked.
