 LOS ANGELES -- The schools in Los Angeles are safe and will reopen Wednesday, Los Angeles Unified School District School Board President Steve Zimmer told reporters.

"We can now announce, and conclude, and tell you, and tell the community that we believe that our schools are safe, and we can reopen schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District tomorrow morning," he said.

The FBI has determined that a threat against schools in the city was not credible, Mayor Eric Garcetti said.

"Whether it's criminal mischief, whether it's somebody testing vulnerabilities of multiple cities, we still do not know enough to say definitively," he said. "What we do know is that it will be safe for our children to return to school tomorrow."

At the press conference, officials defended the decision to close down schools for the day.

"I think that anything can be viewed with a mirror into the past, but when decisions were made, the information that we have now was not available," Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck told reporters Tuesday evening.

Steven Zipperman, police chief for the school district's police department, said more than 2,700 officers were involved in walk-throughs at more than 1,500 school sites Tuesday.

"That's a lot of resources, resources wisely used," he said. "All of us can go to bed tonight with a lot more comfort knowing that all of our schools have been checked."

    Happens ALL the time now:
    LIVE EXERCISE or LFX is any military OR IN THIS CASE CIVILIAN exercise in which a realistic scenario for the use of specific equipment is demonstrated. The MSM will cover this AS IF IT WAS REAL. This story is also used to test the public’s reaction to such a scenario. To test the Societal climate; (psychological climate, social context) is typically defined as the perceptions of a social environment that tend to be shared by a group of people. For what reason? To see how you will react!

      Pack your heater while you can, no matter where you go and don’t fall victim to the “fear campaign”
      Control through Fear. Sometimes you use fear to train a dog, even a child. The Elites are our parents. WE the PEOPLE are the kids. Raise your hand if you do not understand this dynamic. Yes it’s been happening for ages. Yes it’s F’kt up! Wake up and arm yourself while you can, tell the truth and don’t fall victim to the greedy scum bags that rule this earth. Stand up for the REAL America, LIFE, LIBERTY, Real TRUE American Patriots should continue to denounce the scripted Main Stream Media and continue to learn about our shadow gov’t.
