They need to check on all threats. Muslims, as has clearly been shown, are not beyond reproach. They piss and moan about being falsely accused and persecuted and then engage in the exact same behavior that they are railing against. A bunch of extremist hypocrites who are slowly losing their foothold.
The LGBT community has long been a target of violence, and the Orlando nightclub shooting was the latest entry into this tragic history. These are threats that cannot be ignored: a marginalized community has continually been victimized, and that cannot (and indeed should not) continue. I believe that the police should step up and do more to recognize these threats as serious.
For the longest time the LGBT community has been attacked simply for being different from society's norms. Most of these attacks have resulted in the deaths of innocent people simply because of their life choice. The police need to take these threats as seriously as they do anything else because the threat and danger for the LGBT community is real.
Any threats of harm to any group of people should be taken seriously. The LGBT community is no different. If law officers had knowledge of calls to harm those in the LGBT community, these threats should have been immediately investigated and appropriately addressed. All communities and people should be treated with the same vigilance. The LGBT community incurs more threats and danger then most groups of people, so they especially require vigilance of law enforcement.
