WASHOE COUNTY, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Law enforcement agencies are not brushing off threatening rumors coming from schools across the country including here in Washoe County.

One rumor indicates attacks happening at schools on Friday because Friday has been called "doomsday," or the end of the world.

School police in Washoe County say they will look into any report, and so far, they have not found any threat to contain merit.

This is the most ridiculous waste of energy on any person to worry about this crap. The news channels are just so desperate to find a story, they will make anything up. For them to target a certain school the way they did was cowardly and wrong. If they want to know what is going on in a school, they should not come creeping in a back door with a small camera just searching for something to cause mass hysteria. Shame on you channel 4 for creating a problem that isn't even there! Do you not think that teachers and staff members have anything better to do than to spend their day calming parents and students after your blatant act of sneakiness? Get a life!

A lot of doomsdayers are going to feel like idiots. Even the current Mayan descendants say it's just going to be another day. It's just another flip of a calendar page like we do every month. It's just that they made theirs into millenniums instead of 12 months. There is no Mayan descendant that knows how to make another celestial calendar like the last one. I think security should be increased anyway just because there's a lot of copy cats out there that will want to make a name for themselves. Be the "Manly Man" and shoot the bad little kids and rob us of the future scientists, teachers, tradesmen, and astronauts. And countless other important geniuses.
