Koebere Bull of New Jersey averted what could have been an unfathomable tragedy by following her gut and reporting a racist she encountered on Facebook.


On the morning of Wednesday, October 17, Bull received a message from 20-year-old Dylan Jarrell, who used hateful language and claimed he wanted her children dead because they were black. Obviously, the situation was a trying one for Bull:

(He was) basically repeating himself about hoping my children would die and be hung because they're black. It was definitely racially motivated, 'you and your monkey children' and using the 'n' word a lot.



But something about the message stuck with her past the initial revulsion. She told WKYT:

Something in the back of my head was like this isn't right, like something's not sitting well.

Recognizing the prominent connection between people who threaten violence against people of color and those who commit it, Bull decided she should contact the authorities. Her friends were able to determine where Jarrell lived using his social media and they passed the information on to local authorities.



The case was investigated by State Trooper Josh Satterly. On Thursday morning, Jarrell "was caught backing out of his driveway with the tools he needed to commit this heinous act." Police Commissioner Richard Sanders told WKYT:

That call put police on his street just in the nick of time. Kentucky State Police, not using his name, told reporters the 20 year old was pulling out of his driveway with hundreds of rounds of ammunition and a detailed plan of attack on two school districts - Anderson County Schools and Shelby County Public Schools.





The internet was relieved that Bull's quick thinking averted what could have been a major shooting:






Anderson County Schools cancelled its Friday classes due to threats of violence. Bull is just glad she took Jarrell's threats seriously enough to take action:

I would hope that someone would, in the same situation, just do the same thing. Because, obviously, you never know. It could be an idle threat or it could be the next mass shooter. It's our future. These kids are our future, my kids, the kids of Lawrenceburg and Anderson County, and we have to give them a fighting shot.

The list of places they absolutely must visit before they die.

There are those, however, who also have a rather different list of destinations.

The places that have no intention to visit.

Be it for safety concerns, language barriers, or simply that there's nothing at these places that calls to them, there are places some wouldn’t dream of spending the time and money to visit.

Redditor TrooperJohn was curious to hear which places were at the very bottom of the list of travel destinations for his fellow Redditors, leading them to ask:
