This is so scary.

Ugh. Some people.

As it was, four people were wounded by gunfire.

I think that they will be taking this threat very seriously because you cannot logically state that if it was a real threat he/they wouldn't have sent the letter. You cannot assign logic to nutters and, unfortunately, there are more than a few around.

It must be very scarey for a young child to have to deal with this sort of threat because ignorance is not an option. She has to know why her every move is shadowed, even when all she just wants to do is skip rope with her friends. Loving parents who want her to live as normal a life as possible are the only antidote to living in fear.
Yes, that is very true - we cannot expect the irrational to act rationally. And usually these types want as much attention and notoriety as they can garner.

As for Elisabeth now knowing - she's 12. It's the internet age. Her classmates will let her know, no matter how much her family might want to shield her and downplay all of this. Her classmates also face some threat as they could be in the wrong place at the wrong time, theoretically. So they must be placed on their guard as well.

Horrible to shatter innocence like this.

VTM's royalty/ het nieuwsblad makes a comparison to 1936, when a man from Liege demanded 2 million Belgian francs to stop him from kidnapping Baudouin, Albert and Josephine-Charlotte:

Ook Boudewijn en Albert werden als kind bedreigd - Het Nieuwsblad

The man soon was identified as the 31 y/o gangster Nicholas Elsèn and he was arrested. It is unknown how much time he spent in prison though.
