Governor Scott Walker says Wisconsin is not immune to terror attacks like the one in Brussels this week.
During a stop in Green Bay Tuesday, the governor talked about the importance of being vigilant against potential threats, and pointed to a case earlier this year in Milwaukee in example. The FBI in January arrested a man who is now accused of plotting a mass shooting at a Masonic Temple. “That’s a good example where things worked right, and the authorities worked together and got things done,” Walker said.
In the wake of the attacks in Brussels, which killed at least 31 people and injured 270 others, Walker said he spoke with the head of the state’s National Guard to determine if any specific threats against the state exist. Walker said there are none at this time, but it’s still important for people to call police if they see something suspicious. “If people notice something unusual, report it to local law enforcement,” he said. “They don’t need to get it up to the FBI, you can literally just tell your local police department.”
From there, Walker said there is a statewide and nationwide network that works together to check out that information.
