Target: Houlton Police Chief Joe McKenna
Goal: Ensure a proper and thorough investigation into Walmart bomb threats.
Bomb threats were called in to multiple Walmarts in the state of Maine. Police say the threats came in the manner of a computer generated voice, warning that there were bombs inside the stores. Authorities checked nearly a dozen stores that received the same call but didn’t find anything unusual. They say several areas also had to be swept due to these malicious threats.
No explosives were found and no injuries reported, but Walmart says they’re working with police to find who made the calls. These bomb threats, even if they were just a prank call, are still dangerous and caused panic among the people in the affected states. Being a false alarm, it’s possible there will not be a thorough investigation since it’s easy for authorities to not spend time investigating threats that don’t manifest.
The public deserves answers and and bomb threats need to be taken seriously, even when they’re false alarms. Demand a proper and thorough investigation into the issue about who’s behind these threats.
Dear Police Chief McKenna,
Multiple Walmarts received bomb threats that turned out to be a prank call as police didn’t find any real danger when they swept the stores. This is a sick idea of a joke to cause terror and panic that the citizens of Maine had to endure and they deserve answers.
People could’ve been hurt in this prank. We urge you to ensure that a proper and thorough investigation is conducted.
[Your Name Here]
