Approximately two weeks ago, the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office received information that three police officers from Paramus, Fair Lawn and Garfield had received harassing and threatening letters. During the same time period, several local businesses received letters that contained racial, homophobic, and threatening messages. As a result of the information received, members of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Special Investigations Squad and local police departments initiated an investigation.  During the investigation, two more letters were sent to businesses in Englewood and Allendale.  These letters contained anti-Semitic and racist remarks.  The letters all appeared to be written by the same person and contained similar threatening remarks.

As a result of the investigation, NIKOLAY LEVINSON was arrested on October 10, 2017 in Palisades Park, New Jersey and charged with two counts of Terroristic Threats, N.J.S.A. 2C:12-3A, a Third degree crime; three counts of Bias Intimidation, N.J.S.A. 2C:16-1a(2), a Third Degree Crime; and four counts of Harassment, N.J.S.A. 2C:33-4a, a Third Degree Crime.

Assemblyman Rob Karabinchak, who sponsored the bill along with Assembly Speaker Vince Prieto. New Jersey Legislature

Hopefuls with criminal convictions could soon be barred from running for local New Jersey school boards. A legislative committee advanced a bill to force would-be school board candidates to submit an affirmation to the state that he or she has not been convicted of any first or second-degree crime on Monday.

Those disqualifying convictions would include endangering the welfare of a child; drug possession or distribution; robbery, burglary, aggravated assault, stalking, kidnapping, arson, manslaughter and murder; terroristic threats; criminal restraint; perjury, and bias intimidation.

Assembly sponsor Robert Karabinchak said in a statement after the committee vote that he believes the new requirement would help protect students in the state.

the Ridgewood blogs “anti threat policy”

Ridgewood _police_theridgewoodblog

Ridgewood NJ, the policy of the Ridgewood blog is to never share information about posters with anyone friend or foe. There is one major exception and that is with “terroristic threats “. Law enforcement must investigate all “terroristic threats”, failure by local police to investigate “terroristic threats ” could lead DHS and or the FBI to do so. It is all part of the “war on terror” and the broader anti-terror laws .

The Ridgewood blog has an “anti threat policy” ,ie no threats allowed ,so Information is shared with law enforcement is a professional courtesy and for everyone’s safety.

“A terroristic threat is when a person threatens to commit any crime of violence against another person with the intent to terrorize. Because this is a speech based crime, it can often be difficult to determine if a person’s actions constitute a criminal offense.”criminal-law.freeadvice.com/criminal-law/violent…/terrorist-threats.htm

First we determine we are being contacted by law enforcement , if the person requesting information is not law enforcement then no information is shared .
2nd we check to distinguish if there was any threat or it is some bogus claim. If we determine there was no apparent threat made the Police would have to get paperwork like anyone else to take a look .Given there is well over 100,000 comments live on the blog that might take the later half of the 21st century to find anything .

Remember there really is no anonymity on the internet , you IP address gives away your location , sometimes people can invest in stealth IP’s based on
Canadian servers or else where, as some of the blog stalkers do making them more difficult but not impossible to trace.

Most importantly the anonymity of the blog means you take soul responsibility for your own comments , you are not a protected source like with a newspaper.
