Schutze is at the Don Hill trial today, and during the lunch break he was sent word that WFAA and The Dallas Morning News buildings on César Chávez were cordoned off by police.

To which he responded:
There was a suspicious object that was attached to a light pole out front on Young Street (Frisbee-type thing with wires and a vile of liquid). Bomb squad said it is not anything dangerous. We are printing it to see who put it on the light pole.
