This guy was arrested before for a SIMILAR CRIME. On top of that, he has issued numerous threats. Why was he not locked up? Or being heavily monitored at least?
A masked man ordered children be evacuated at Eagle Valley Elementary School in Eagle Mountain, Utah, so that “no one will get hurt.” The threat has prompted bomb squad and sniper-armed police to the scene, where evacuations are underway.
All children are off the school premises, Assistant to the Superintendent of the Alpine School District Kimberly Bird told KSTU.
Bird told the local Fox affiliate that a man wearing a mask entered the school office shortly after 2:00pm, warning, “Evacuate the kids and no one will get hurt.”
The suspect was photographed wearing a flowing, bright green outfit with a white head covering.

The suspect appears to be Christopher Craig, who drove onto an elementary school playground in 2014, dressed in similar Arabic neon green garb with a head covering. Craig has a history of stirring comotions, as in 2013 he disrupted multiple Colorado churches, according to the Associated Press.
Craig has called himself an “Islamist jihadist” and sent out written threats to several media outlets before the Eagle Mountain incident Monday, according to reports.
In the email to the Times, Craig said he “was born into this world under the slave name of Christopher Craig. Currently, I am known as The Radical Islamic Jihadist Muhammad Allah Al-Khidr.”
