KENOSHA — A message posted to Facebook late Wednesday, October 7th by the Kenosha Unified School District indicates an investigation is underway after a threat began circulating Wednesday, October 7th.

According to the Facebook post, an “inappropriate ISIS text regarding the closing of schools began circulating.”

School officials say a text is being passed among students that states: “Schools will be closing Oct. 8 due to a bomb threat by ISIS. Here’s a list of all schools closed (link).” According to school district officials, the link provided doesn’t list schools, but instead, it opens a pornographic photo of an adult male.

School officials say this is believed to be a hoax — and school WILL be in session as usual on Thursday, October 8th.

The complete Facebook post is below:

Law enforcement officials have been busy since last Thursday, October 1st investigating threats at several schools in southeastern Wisconsin.

The first closed all schools in the Pewaukee School District on Friday, October 2nd.

Police say an eighth-grade student admitted to writing a threat reading: “This school will explode” at John Long Middle School in Grafton. That threat was discovered on Monday morning, October 5th.

A 14-year-old student was apprehended after a bomb and weapons threat was found in a restroom at Yorkville Elementary School in Union Grove on Tuesday, October 6th. That handwritten threat was found in a bathroom at the school.

And on Wednesday, October 7th, employees found a Post-it note with a threat written on it. The note was discovered on the outside of the door to a classroom at the end of the school day.

Police were called to the school, and determined this was not a substantial threat.

    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! The cops don’t have to do anything but wait for the punks to send in the threats that will create a climate of fear. 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.
