The suspects include a truck driver in Indianapolis who allegedly threatened to shoot and stab people at a Tennessee church and a 15-year-old in Florida accused of posting a mass shooting threat on a video game platform. CBS News national security analyst Fran Townsend was a homeland security and counterterrorism adviser for President George W. Bush. She joins “CBS This Morning” to discuss how law enforcement are tackling the "epidemic" of domestic terrorism threats.
