And now Governor Scott Walker is cancelling the annual Easter egg hunt.
It's not just about Walker. It may have started in Wisconsin — at that store with a name to spark insane ideation — but Joseph Jakubowski has also sent a 161-page manifesto to the White House and it supposedly threatens other government officials, including President Trump.
So it seems this man wants to be well-known as a threat, which isn't the normal way you'd plan a big attack. Even if the store was chosen for reasons other than that name — Armageddon — setting the truck on fire is a highly conspicuous demand for attention. Ordinarily, a thief tries to get away, not draw attention to the scene. And the man is writing long letters and sending them where they will be read and taken very seriously.
I assume there are always some individuals amassing guns quietly and thinking about committing acts of violence. We don't know their names, but we do know the name Joseph Jakubowski. He's the one who wants attention.
UPDATE: "Terror suspect Joseph Jakubowski captured in western Wisconsin." The time on that news story is 8:11 AM CDT — that is, 1 minute after I put up this post.
UPDATE 2: The Easter egg hunt is back on.
