October 16, 2015 Wilfrid Laurier University was placed under lock down after an online threat was posted to 4chan. FBI and police worked together. 

For those of you who don't know already; I am a student at Wilfrid Laurier University who happened to live on the same street as the building that was placed under lock down and was under FBI surveillance for a few hours last Friday.

The University from my apartment front doors. The building on the far right is the building specifically threatened online.

My Morning

I was actually sleeping when I got a call from my parents that warned me of the threat. It was all over the news, apparently. 

What actually happened was that a man in London, UK called Daniel Ransem posted on 4chan a threat to the people of the internet along the lines of "Do not enter [the University's] Science building on the day of x" Which sparked a police follow up through crime stoppers, and signaled a campus-wide lock down and FBI involvement. I did not leave my apartment during the incident.

That day I was actually catching a bus to hit up the University of Toronto and attend a tournament at Hart House, so that was fun. Luckaly the lock down ended on time for me to catch my bus.

The Incident

As it turns out, it was a joke. "Everyone was doing it" says Daniel in an interview. Apparently making threats to Universities all over the world is a thing on 4chan. "People took it too seriously, this wasn't my intention" he continued. (And i'm paraphrasing here)

Well guys, if there's anything you should take out of this. Don't say stupid things on the internet. It is no joke that mass shooting have occurred in America recently, Schools are a constant target. This is not a joke for the people who actually have to live it. 

I'll add more later on, because I have to get back to my studies. 

You can see his interview here:

Thanks 4chan and it's members. You've produced us with this sadistic London fellow who scared an entire community. 

But in all reality here... the internet is public. Threats are still a threat. There is no 'seriousness indication  filter' that the authorities use to dictate if a threat is legitimate or not. You may just have the police on your doorstep if you do not filter your words.

Awe thank you so much! I know, I'm finally kicking myself to finish up a bunch of work before my next year of University. Thank you for the kind comment :D 
Here's hoping I can continue it more consistently throughout the year!
