It appears that the matter has all but died here in Missouri. The person(s) were obviously serious about getting their message out considering the amount of time and money they spent but it went no further than that.

I know I'm digging up an old/dead thread.  But whatever came of this?  Anything?  Or did it just stop?

Yeah, years ago we could write off someone like this as just a nut case and laugh it off, but with all the stuff going on recently who knows how it could play out. Increasing security around the Lodges sounds like a good idea to me.

What I have gleaned from my brothers, is.........

at some Lodges, the Police had no interest.
at some Lodges, a report was made.
At some Lodges, a report was made and the package seized for evidence.

The consensus is there was no crime committed at this point, but they reinforced keeping vigilent

Aside from the aggravation of it all, this guy has traveled all over the state of Missouri doing this [assuming it is one guy].  He has been observed on candid camera, and it appears it is the same guy.

He has spent money on gas, wear and tear on his car, envelopes, copying costs, and no doubt meals and motels etc.  The package alone is about 50/60 pages.

I admire his dedication and perseverance, albeit he is somewhat misguided.

We have 360+ Lodges in the state, and over 150 have been hit  and the mystery continues.

Sounds like someone out of touch with reality and is probably harmless, but you never know these days. Do you know if the police are actively investigating?

Well the mystery continues.

Lodges across western Missouri, Central Missouri and now in an around the St. Louis area are being tagged with this ridiculous envelope of BS and worthless paper. 

I wish I knew what his intentions were, this is kind of scary.

I am staggered by the time, paper, gasoline, and effort expended by this group

At least there has been no violence or destruction.

This could be anything from a prank to a serious threat. Hopefully the law enforcement in the area has a good idea how serious. I can't help but wonder, could this be related to all the unrest at University of Missouri a few months back? I know there were outside agitators getting in there inflaming things and those fringe lunatic/anarchist types aren't always fond of Freemasonry.

What type of gun laws does Missouri have?

Sometimes the police are just too far away regardless of gun laws.

Three more Lodges were "hit" this weekend, they were located in rural areas, and the buildings were unattended at the time.

I hope this isn't a precursor to something more physical/violent!!

Check your state law as some places have laws covering fraternal groups.

My Lodge installed a security system at our building with a number of cameras. It has reduced most vandalism, but we still get the graffiti from time to time. I agree though that we should remain vigilant.

To all the Bretheran across the Country..........beware.

Some Lodges, in southwest Missouri,   [about 10 in number right now]. have received anti Masonic material attached to their door, one included a physical threat to the members.

In most cases, the Police have been called, and some Departments are taking this seriously, others not so much.

I don't have a lot detailed information to pass on, I am only repeating what has been transmitted  throughout the state on the Google Secretaries/DDGM site.

From what I understand, this material is previously printed dogma/morals/etc and is posted on the doors of the Lodges, while it is unattended.

My word to  all of you is to be vigilant, be aware, and pay attention.  If these people come to visit you
and I don't know if this is some nationwide action or not, but at least be aware, and be cautious.

The one Lodge that was threatened, contained a note, to expect a visit by these people..............
one can only imagine what they have on their mind.

If and when I learn more I will pass it on to you.

Biver no longer has a day-to-day role in Hublot, but rather manages Hublot replica watches along with other LVMH watch brands from the top. For instance, it was recently announced that he replica watches would be filling in as the interim CEO of TAG Heuer - another LVMH brand. That isn't a job Jean-Claude probably rolex replica wants right now, as he has been toying with retirement for a while - but he steps up when he is rolex replica sale needed. Hublot has been doing a good job of keeping the fire alive without Jean-Claude, but with Ricardo always out and about, I can't help but wonder who rolex replica keeps the peace back at HQ. I mention the above as a semi-explanation of the fact that Hublot doesn't always have all the replica watches details settled when they announce a new replica watches uk partnership or product. The major question on the table is whether or not there will be a limited replica watches uk production "Mr. Brainwatch Edition" watch.
