Threatening letter

Frederick police are looking for this person who is believed to have left a threatening letter at a resident's doorstep overnight on Oct. 4. In addition to being threatening toward the resident, it referred to several political figures in the U.S. government.

Frederick police and the U.S. Secret Service continue to investigate a threatening political letter left in a resident's mailbox on Sunday, and are trying to identify the man responsible.

A resident contacted city police Sunday morning about a letter that had been put in her mailbox overnight, according to a release from the Frederick Police Department.

According to a copy of the letter obtained by the Baltimore television station WBAL, it contains threats to Democratic presidential and vice presidential nominees Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, as well as former Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, and says the writers have collected a list of homes with signs supporting Biden and Harris.

In a statement to the News-Post Thursday, a Secret Service spokeswoman said that, “The Secret Service does not confirm or comment on the absence or existence of specific investigations. We can say, however, the Secret Service investigates all threats directed against designated protectees.”

The letter was written as if it could have been put on anyone's house with a Biden sign in their yard, and police don't think the suspect knows the residents where the letter was left, Lt. Kirk Henneberry of the Frederick Police Department said Thursday.

The department has shared pictures from the home's doorbell camera of a man putting the letter in the home's mailbox with other police departments in the region, but aren't sure if the man in the video is local or from outside the area, he said.

Henneberry said they're not aware of any similar incidents in the area.

Steven Clark, chairman of the Frederick County Republican Central Committee, said the committee condemns all forms of political violence or threats. No one should be threatened no matter whose sign they have in their yard, Clark said.

Deborah Carter, chairwoman of the county's Democratic Central Committee, said she was sad to hear about the letter but not surprised, saying that President Donald Trump's tweets and rallies encourage violence.

Carter said she wouldn't be surprised to see more of this type of conduct as the election gets closer. 

"I would be happy to be wrong," she said.  

News of the letter with threats to Biden, Harris, and Giffords came on the same day that FBI officials announced that several men were charged in Michigan as part of an alleged plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D).

The men had allegedly staked out Whitmer's vacation home over the summer, and talked about taking her to a secret location in Wisconsin for a “trial,” according to the New York Times.

Anyone with information about the incident in Frederick or the man's identity can contact Detective Christopher Sharpe at 240-549-4522, or leave an anonymous voicemail at 301-600-8477, text message at 240-674-8477, or email at fpdcrimetip@frederickmdpolice.org.

CD is a brilliant writer and his views are right on target. I enjoy his commentary. It is really too bad that those of us who are politically conservative cannot make a single statement in the FNP that doesn't get X number of below-the-belt, insulting personal remarks especially by the newest (of relatively lately) posters. Hence, that is behavior of trolls. However, it is ridiculous for people to act this way. And; as I said a few days ago, the FNP does not care to restrict such comments.

It would be nice to just communicate with our like-minded posters and forego all the unrelenting baiting and name-calling. (Consequently, I am essentially bowing out of all the childish nonsense). I assume that there is no way to accomplish that since it is an anonymous format.

NewMarketParent

@sue1955

You have a place to comment. There is a whole fiction section in the library.

CD is to writing what Vanilla Ice was to Rap. I love the exchange of ideas, but I also love an argument performed in good faith. CD, Reek and associates don't do any of that. Like-minded discussion in a public forum doesn't mean you get to thread-crap "to own the libs", or like in public you can be asked to leave if you are drunk and belligerent.

You dropped that high road garbage when you abandoned every single one of your purported values, so you can take your pearl-clutching to the library.

Sue confuses racism with conservatism.

bosco

And the usual suspects show up to prove sue1955's point. Precious.

Don't give up sue, just scroll past the LLBTT posts and have a more enjoyable time.

Like CD and I espouse, Life is Good.

MRS M

sue1955, most respectfully, I know I'm late to this discussion, but I must say you will be sincerely and hopelessly missed. However, I'm sure you will find "the like-minded, politically conservative" posters and thought leaders on American conservatism today that you are seeking on Facebook. There I'm betting you'll find a wide range of erudite opinions on just how terrific it would have been to return to America circa 1950. Also, I'm very appreciative that you have brought to my attention CD's "brilliance". I seem to have missed that. Goodbye

Sue, Kelly had a similar complaint a day or two ago and was met with nasty comments from some of the same people who are supporting your comment. It is unfortunate that the FNP has done a lousy job of enforcing its own rules in this forum.

You let these oldsters shake their fists at the clouds and by golly, you feel better for everyone.

Respect your elders I guess. Obviously, CD is an old white man and he's afraid of the future. It's understandable. The older you get, the greater you were.

FNP STAFF:

When is a good time for me to call someone on Monday?

Please do something about CD Reid. I and others have asked you multiple times. We are paying to comment here. We were not aware that we were agreeing to be harassed by people like CD Reid and GabrielHorn.

I came to check on my comment down below where I wrote about my neighbor's ByDon signs being stolen. As I was scrolling down to mine I am seeing unnecessary comments from CD Reid where he is schooling others on how to interact here in FNP Comment Land.

I wrote a short post about my neighbors placing their ByDon signs up high on a tree trunk. And look at the replies to me from CD. A simple post about my neighbor's signs.

Ban his you know what. And block his IP address(es). Send a cease and desist letter and if he comes back under different credentials - slap a lawsuit on him.

Are you going to issue us commenters a credit to our account for putting up with him? Do you want us commenters to call our card providers and dispute the charges citing we're getting the service we expected?

What is a good time for me to call on Monday?

Let's get a grip here. I don't agree with most of what CD Reid and other like minded people say, but let's not do the whole cancel thing on a local newspaper online forum. I too subscribe to this newspaper and pay the monthly fee which allows me to comment and I don't think canceling someone is the answer.

bosco

Agree, vodalone.... we don't all agree on anything and the lines shift with the topics. We can disagree without being disagreeable. [ninja]

phydeaux994

No you can’t bosco, that’s never happened. You’re just a little more “polite” than CD but just as disagreeable. You and CD win the MDA(MostDisagreeableAward) just by pure volume over 5+ years. Time to lighten up which you may be trying to do, maybe?? but CD is getting a little threatening. Peace! ✌️

Grow a pair. It's an open forum subject to the rules posted.

It’s called payback, Karma, bosco, for years of the BTT(BullyTagTeam) abuse. And like all Bullies, you can’t handle pushback. Quit crying.😪Now you know what you’ve been doing to others for years, only we just kept fighting back instead of whining. “Why’s everybody always pickin’ on me”. And you know as well as I do, you and CD have broken the rules by orders of magnitude. Quit whining. You play nice, I’ll play nice.

Abuse? Here's another assignment for you Fido. When have I ever directed any abuse toward you? Then, take a look at some of the name calling and ridicule posted by your LLBTT buddies. Follow MrsM, PP, NMP and see how kind they are toward differing opinions or even questions.

I'm not sure I would have posted this because now you have shown Butch he got under your skin. Sometimes you need to fight fire with fire and you can see how easily I can get him to tuck tail and run and he doesn't mess with me, i have him spitting nails..lol His comments should give you plenty of material to work with.

I did like your ByDon comment, I knew exactly what you meant but your comment did go over a few people's heads. And it probably infuriated CD, which is why he was picking on you. So see you are getting under his skin. And if the only thing he can criticize you for is that typed truck instead of trunk you're doing great.

Kelly[thumbup] FNP, You are not doing a good enough job of enforcing your rules. When you do so it is haphazard. Unless you block repeat offenders, they will continue to break the rules.

Bullying. Harassment. Is not what we agreed to when we provided our credit card information to FNP.

High time the problem commenters here get the boot

PurplePickles aka L&M

@Kelly Alzan

Agreed! [thumbup][thumbup] the comments would be better without the problems

NewMarketParent

I would just be happy with consistency.

MD1756

Like those commenters who insist on calling the Sheriff "Sherf Trumpkins?"

NewMarketParent

@MD1756

I mean... he is.

KellyAlzan

Discussing elected officials and their actions and harassing fellow commenters are two completely different things.

MD1756

KellyAlzan and NMP, no. Like him or not, calling the sheriff "Sherf Trumpkins" is being disrespectful and degrading (something you claim to hate Trump for) and against the rules "Be civil. Don't threaten. Don't lie. Don't bait. Don't degrade others." There are no carve outs of this rule no matter what you say KeyllyAlzan. It's fine to criticize the sheriff's actions if you like, but the rules (as unevenly enforced as they are) do not permit you to bait someone or degrade someone and I'd say calling someone "Sherf Trumpkins" is degrading the sheriff. You just can't help yourself and had to add a comment "This is where intelligence comes into play..." suggesting that if someone doesn't agree with your definition of degrading someone else, then they are not intelligent? There certainly was no need for the comment as worded. I'm telling you now (and have told you in the past) that your name calling of public figures is an attempt to bait others who disagree with your position and is an attempt to degrade the public official. If you want to degrade them, you should trying using correct facts and logic to explain what you believe is wrong with their position and then let others come to an appropriate conclusion.

MD1756

Please add yourself to that list. You constantly violate the rule "Be civil. Don't threaten. Don't lie. Don't bait. Don't degrade others." At the very least you believe it is ok to call public officials names, and you often do. By the way, who voted you FNP Commenter of the year in 2003?

KellyAlzan

This is where intelligence comes into play. Huge difference between harassing and trolling commenters vs discussing incompetent elected officials. People call Obama names. People call Nancy pelosi names. It’s what happens when you put your name on a ballot. No comparison to an online message board

bosco

So, how did that phone call go? [lol][ninja]

It looks like Tom Morello - who knew he was in Frederick.

C.D.Reid

As is to be expected, by their comments posted here, fido's LLBTT (Liberal Left Bully Tag Team) is under the false impression that only Trump supporters would damage/steal the political signs of opponents. And this after all the months of damaging and stealing that the liberal Left has done in the major cities. It's blatantly obvious that they are simply too blind to the fact that there are low lifes who would, and do, damage and steal Trump signs. And that's to be expected too. Their hatred for Trump has blinded them to the point of no return.

@CD/Butch

Also let's not forget the orange one on purpose deliberately separated children from their mothers, he pulled nursing babies away from their mothers just because...well to be cruel and heartless and evil, pure evil.

PurplePickles aka L&M

@CD/Butch

I see you haven't changed my name to Aloha so your comment is probably going to be deleted so I will repost your comment without the name and change it to Aloha because I know my comment will not be deleted and I will respond to your comment because well I am a tad bored at the moment.

@PurplePickles/Aloha

Respect is like loyalty; it has to be earned. And I have yet seen you make any effort to earn any.When you do, then you'll deserve it, not before. As I mentioned yesterday, you jumped into posting comments here throwing insults at everyone who appeared to you to be a conservative without getting to know anything about anyone like you're some kind of lord and master. And who the hell do you think you are going around assigning your own little names to others who post comments here, somebody special? Because if you do, guess what? You're not. You're a nobody, except in that void between your own ears.

Butch I think you need to calm down a tad. I assign names as I see you and I see you as a Butch and Bosco as Eric Trump ect.

LOL it's funny you see me as your lord and master, I have tried my best to lead you but I can see I have failed with you.

What is there about you that you want me to know, your posts pretty much say everything about you so I'm not sure what else there is about you that I don't know?

What you are really mad about is that I dared to stand up to you and the others when what you really want me to do is cower in fear, but see you don't scare me I scare you now that is hilarious ..LOL

Yeah I like my new name..lol.... it's pretty close to Aloha I have yet to see you show me one smidgeon of respect but on the other hand NMP has shown me a ton of respect which is why him and I are good friends. So if you want me to respect you, you need to also respect me so....maybe rethink your name for me because that is not a respectful name and you know it...so let's start there. Remember respect is a two way street and so far you insist on going one way....if you want to change my new name to Aloha that would be respectful.

Because actual African American people tend to be better at detecting features on African American faces better than others. Just like Latinx tend to be better at detecting Latinx features...

I have great difficulty telling Pakistani people from Indian people and I know this is a flaw of mine as I don't have a good amount of interaction with people from each of the different countries to have a great dataset for discrimination between the two (one great reason that having diversity is great).

But if you were an actual POC, you might know that instead of the fake one you play here on FNP.

mcrider.....EVIDENCE not your opinion.

phydeaux994

He’s obviously Norwegian or Swedish. That’s a ski cap not a watch cap.

PurplePickles aka L&M

I bet the white male in the picture is kicking himself because he forgot that typically dem voters are a tad more sophisticated and tech savvy and usually have the latest in home security. Unlike Republicans who typically rely on their stock pile of guns to keep them safe. But it was an honest mistake when you lack critical thinking skills , which he clearly lacks.

That is a really good picture the doorbell camera took, we should next be reading that the white male in this picture has been taken into custody, well at least I hope we do because after yesterday with the white male terrorists being arrested for plotting to kill Gretchen Whitmer, we should all be hoping for his quick arrest.

It's a federal case. Per Sect. 508.3.1.3 of the Domestic Mail Manual (DMM) "No part of a mail receptacle may be used to deliver any matter not bearing postage, including items or matter placed upon, supported by, attached to, hung from, or inserted into a mail receptacle. Any mailable matter not bearing postage and found as described above is subject to the same postage as would be paid if it were carried by mail."

Additionally the article says that the threats were against candidates for federal office which again is a federal jurisdiction not county. The article doesn't say threats were made against the homeowner.

NewMarketParent

I'm sure that the Trumpers on here won't acknowledge that members of Y'all Qaeda were just arrested for a plot to try to kidnap the Governor of MI. We gonna talk about that Trumpers and how your guy keeps suggesting that violence be used towards political rivals.

“Maybe you do not care much about the future of the Republican Party. You should. Conservatives will always be with us. If conservatives become convinced that they can not win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. The will reject democracy.”

― David Frum, Trumpocracy: The Corruption of the American Republic

PurplePickles aka L&M

@NMP

Conservatives and Republicans are not one in the same these days and I think it's the Republicans that have been convinced that they can't win democratically. Actual Conservatives will not abandon democracy but they will refuse to participate in it, and the Republicans wonder why they can win fair and square, it's because they have abandoned their conservative roots and the actual Conservative.

Republicans are members of the Republican Party whereas conservatives are members of the party who has a more conservative view of the government. Republicans may or may not be a conservative political member.

Today's Republicans' are not Conservatives,,,,they have morphed into an unrecognizable party of hate and division.

Now if we could split the right into two different political parties, the Conservatives and the Republicans......

Yah, there are extremists on both sides. However, Trump is generally supported by extremists on the right, while Biden is generally not supported by extremists on the left and has made it clear that he is against violence. Trump continues to give mixed messages about violence on the right, so yes he does deserve some blame when violence is committed in his name. Whatever the outcome of the election, there will probably be some violence, and leaders - especially the president - need to be clear that it won't be tolerated.

So, Deborah Carter says that "President Donald Trump's tweets and rallies encourage violence." His tweets and rallies weren't responsible for all the rioting, burning, looting, etc. in the Democrat led cities over the summer, they managed to do all that by themselves. How many nights have the "protests" been going on in Portland now? They aren't Trump's fault; a spineless mayor and a spineless governor can take responsibility for them.

CD, don't forget those were "mostly peaceful" protests that resulted in all of the Burning Looting and Mayhem, don't forget that ANTIFA is just a myth (Nadler) or an idea (Biden), and don't forget the "Summer of Love" takeover of a six-square-block area in central Seattle where protestors were demanding homeowners vacate their condos so the protestors could move in as reparations.

Also, don't forget that Harris supports a fund that pays the bail for the Burn Loot Mayhem rioters so that they could get out of jail to do more destruction.

The FBI has actually released a bunch of information saying that the threat of domestic terrorism is a serious threat in the US.

An·ti·fa

/ˈan(t)ēˌfä,ˌanˈtēfə/

Learn to pronounce

noun

a political protest movement comprising autonomous groups affiliated by their militant opposition to fascism and other forms of extreme right-wing ideology.

Then compare the damage from the Burn Loot and Mayhem movement during the "Summer of Love" to that of any other movement/organization.

My spelling is accurate as it pertains to the signs I’m referring to.

"...the 'trucks' of mature oak trees" is accurate?

Our Lead Commenter and possible future candidate for sheriff does not sugar coat things or talk pretty, but she has been around the block and should be respected. People on all sides need to be careful to be nice, especially as we get closer to the election.

Probably inbred yokels from Myersville, Wolfsville,etc. Middletown itself has had a lot of Biden-Harris signs up this election season, many many more than Clinton signs back in 2016 which shows how the area is changing.

Our neighborhood HOA won't allow political signage in the yards and I am pretty happy about that rule.

I would hate to think I had orange-worshipping fascists up the street.

vodalone

Even though I despise HOA's that's a good rule in general. As if a sign or flag in your yard makes your vote any more or less important, I don't get it.

I believe it is one of those things that encourages people to be good neighbors to each other as it discourages political discussions which can destroy relationships.

40 years same neighborhood, no HOA, no problem with mixed party signs on our street that I recall. Criticized sometimes for "no standards" except city regulations, may actually encourage neighbors to MYOB. It's your place. What should I care.

The “home” was vandalized ? Really? So what exactly was done to the “home”. If you can say ?
