Who is the article about, or who is the event about? (minimum 3 full sentences) The article is about the church members encountering the threat, the police officers increasing their security, and West Lafayette Mayor John Dennis staying up-to-date with the news and posting on Facebook.
Summarize in your own words the current event. (At least 7-10 full sentences) The members of the church noticed that there was a banner outside of the church that read: "Die... Orlando just like Las Vegas." The banner even included the date January 23. Later on they found another banner which mentioned the Jackson Browne concert and the banner has racist and anti-gay slurs on it.
Where did this event happen? This event happened at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Indiana, and police officers have been informed and keeping an eye out at the concert.
When did this event happen? This event happened on Tuesday 23, 2018.
Why did this event happen? (1 full paragraph using historical background): This article doesn't state why that happened, and I'm not sure why this anonymous person chose to threat the people attending the concert, but it could've been for attention or to get less people to attend the Jackson Browne concert, The authorities increased their security anyways just to be safe.
What is your opinion about this event? (minimum 3 full sentences): My opinion on this event is it's a horrible situation, and could cause some confusion and fear. I don't know why people choose to just aggravate others and during a time like enjoying some live music from a loved artist? I also found it to be insensitive to bring up the tragic event at the Los Angeles concert and write racial and anti-gay slurs. I'd say the strangest thing about this event would be that the banner was posted up at a church. I don't understand the reasoning behind it.
