Philip's Big Bomb

Philip writes in his latest article on the Southeast Texas Political Review:

They evacuated the courthouse - oh yes they did because of a bomb scare. And that is good - you always want to be safe - right?

Well it started us thinking about the safety at the Jefferson County Courthouse. How safe is it? It is under lock down right? So..........

Seriously - they have scanners - nobody can get in or out. There are camera's monitored 24-7? Right? How could someone get it with a bomb we ask?

Well - no answer from our sources at the Jefferson County Sheriffs Department.

That's probably because the question is so stupid it deserves no answer - the bomb threat was a call-in:

At around 10 a.m., an anonymous caller to the Beaumont Police Department said the courthouse would be blown up in half an hour. BPD immediately notified the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, which handles courthouse security, and deputies then notified department heads and discussed the situation with elected officials.

Sheriff's Office Deputy Chief Zena Stephens said
new security precautions at the courthouse made the actuality of a bomb inside the building unlikely.

My source at the Jefferson County Sheriff's office told me Philip R. Klein is an idiot.
