Brooklyn Court Building Evacuated

I don't know if anyone heard of this, but The NY Daily News reported that the 24th floor of the Brooklyn Court Building had to be evacuated because of white powder found.

Here is the entire article:

I think someone had it in for the judge. We don't know the entire story yet, but I have a feeling someone didn't like the judge's ruling and sent the powder as a warning message. Maybe we'll know one day.

When I read stories like this I get concerned thinking what if someone decided to send stuff like that in the mail to anyone, like Anthrax. I don't want to think about it for it upsets me.

I hope everyone else in this forum does not get upset about it. I guess just be watchful but not overly fearful about what comes in the mail. Don't take anything for granted.

What got me perturbed about the article in the NY Daily News was that it could happen to anyone. Like yesterday, I received a tube package in the mail. I wasn't expecting anything. I looked and saw it was from Staples. I didn't care. I opened the tube very slowly until it opened a little way. When I looked inside, I noticed it was a pen, coupon, and letter introducing me to a new store location.

Strange things have happened in the past and everyone needs to be alert. You never know what may happen and when.
