Radical Muslims Predicted to Attack Los Angeles-Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
This is a forwarded email that warned of a terrorist attack on all U.S. Citizens in Los Angeles, CA by radical Muslims. The email also said that the death toll could reach 8 or 9.
This eRumor is an obvious joke but some readers did not get the punch line. Los Angeles has more than 8 or 9 American Citizens residing within the city limits.
At the time of this investigation we have not heard of any terrorist threats to the city of Los Angeles. The current Maritime Security Level (MARSEC) for the country, including the Port and City of Los Angels remains at 1. According to the U.S. Coast Guard, who manages MARSEC, means “minimum appropriate security measures shall be maintained at all times.”
