David gives a vibrant inside-perspective of how he was literally at the center of what has unfolded into one of the largest manhunts in the Midwest. Admittedly, the first step is to consider the campus unsecure until we’ve walked the grounds, pulled each door handle, and then do it all over again. I’m fortunate to work with a leader that “gets” environmental security. JANESVILLE (Wis) MANHUNT. Officers are looking for a Joseph A. Jakubowski, a 32-year-old man who’s considered armed and dangerous said he sent a 161-page manifesto to President Trump. Jakubowski is wanted in connection with the theft of guns from the Armageddon gun and ammo shop. A car registered to Jakubowski was found burned nearby, and he's suspected in the arson, officials said. A quick review of the Wisconsin Circuit Court online records search reveals that Joseph Jakubowski has been charged or ticketed 32 times since 2001. The sheriff's office said it learned Thursday that he had made threats to steal weapons and use them against public officials or at an unspecified school. However, it was now mid-morning, and most school shooting occur at the start of the school day. This was favorable news for area schools, many which were in lockdown or had cancelled outdoor events. AFFIRMATION-SEEKING. A February, 2013 article titled: The Final Word: Why Killers Write Manifestos, Marc Lallanilla of Live Science Contributor wrote: "All of these people think they've been wronged," said David A. Clayman, Ph.D., a clinical and forensic psychologist. "These people collect wrongs and they seek out affirmation of their righteousness," said Clayman. "They saw the world as against them. The common theme is a grudge." Look for this in Joseph Jakubowski. He even had a friend film him applying postage stamps to his manifesto and depositing it to the mail receptacle – not to mention a recent YouTube rant referenced, but removed from public view. LINGERING QUESTIONS. As this manhunt drags on, people will ease their guards. You won’t hear people asking about targets as it seems that this man had opportunities and didn’t act upon them. Perhaps he really wanted to be heard. Still this probably won’t end well. An armed and dangerous man is being pursued. He has a history of no regard for authority, is a loner, and certainly realizes that capture means living out his years in prison. ADVICE. I urge you to be aware of your environment and changes in your environment. Just because a threat now seems dissipated or distant doesn’t mean that a police pursuit won’t bring the chaos to your street. Also, harden your own targets by locking doors and leaving lights on at night until this matter has been resolved. FORMATS.
