Virginia malls and shopping centers increase security amid ISIS threat

Source: CBS News

Police in Northern Virginia are on a heightened state of alert as a new law enforcement alert warned of a potential threat against malls and shopping centers located just outside of Washington, D.C. The threat originated with ISIS and is the basis for the alert, sources told CBS News

"We have increased our police presence throughout the county to include major thoroughfares, transit hubs, shopping plazas and shopping malls," Fairfax County police chief Kevin Davis said Friday.

Police said the increased law enforcement presence will be in place through the Halloween weekend and ahead of Virginia's gubernatorial election. Law enforcement officials said they are acting out of an abundance of caution, and as they learn more about the threat, the increased law enforcement presence could be extended through Tuesday's election.

"It's just our responsibility to have a greater presence, to be more aware and to ask the community to have their eyes and ears peeled for suspicious activities," Davis said.

16. That was my immediate thought.

Just seems a little fishy that ISIS would decide to hit in Virginia. I guess it's just a coincidence that the governor's race there is a dead heat, and this would get the MAGAt's out and screaming.

21. Early voting has ended

And Republicans do better in Election Day voting

Plus the polling places arenít in areas described as potential targets. I was out today and traffic was absolutely normal.

Finally do you really believe that Bidenís DHS dreamy this up to hurt Democrats?

22. I was also out on Saturday, so that I could vote early.

The threat alert didn't scare away people from downtown Alexandria. I waited over an hour in a long line of people who didn't want to delay until Tuesday.

7. Wouldn't that would hurt them more than us?

Republicans hate early voting, most vote in-person on Election Day.

10. Yes. One is brown and Muslim and police would hunt them down till the end of their days

The other is white and Christian and the police will fist bump them and give cover for them.

19. Explain?

Early voting ended today. Republicans vote in person so this would depress their votes. And I seriously doubt Bidenís DHS would be party to an effort to depress Democratic votes. And none of the early and Election Day voting sites are in shopping malls.
