Bringing a Bomb to the State Capitol Is a Really Bad Idea

  • Print

Kvon Smith of Milwaukee thought it would be a good idea to make a threat on Facebook that he was coming to the Capitol in Madison to do harm.  No specific individual was targeted.

Police were alerted and extra resources were brought to the Capitol. Kvon's picture was circulated and officer's were posted at the Capitol entrances.

He was identified and arrested as he came into the building.

Smith then allegedly told police that he had a molotov cocktail in his backpack.

Charges are pending.
