Did one of them have a Walther P99 tattoo on his abdomen?
(CBS/ AP) Clifton police say they arrested two men dressed liked ninjas and armed with Asian martial arts weapons who said they were sending a warning to drug users.
Calling themselves "Shinobi warriors," the men wore black SWAT-type vests and carried knives, throwing stars, swords, nunchucks and a bow and arrows.
Twenty-year-old Tadeusz Tertkiewicz and 19-year-old Jesse Trojaniak are charged with weapons possession. Tertkiewicz is also charged with harassment for a letter left for an ex-girlfriend.
After being arrested early Wednesday in a car on Route 46, the men said they were delivering warning letters to drug dealers and drug users urging them to stop their "impure" activities.
Their weapons, Detective Capt. Robert Rowan told The Bergen County Record, were to be a precaution in case they were confronted by the drug dealers.
The officers who arrested the men found the letters in five envelopes decorated with red Chinese designs, The Record reports.
Reports show the two men had already delivered one such letter to Tertkiewicz’ 16-year-old ex-girlfriend in Clifton. Police contacted the teen and her mother and alerted them to the situation.
The letters warned drug users and drug dealers that the “Shinobi will stop your cruel and sadistic intentions with justified yet, merciful force.”
In the letter, the two men accused drug dealers and users of having “committed sin of passing impurity” to others and that the “wind guides us to those of impure heart and intent.”
“Their intentions may have been good, but we tell everyone that they shouldn’t take the law into their own hands because it will cause more problems for everyone in the longrun,” Rowan said.
Trojaniak's father tells The Associated Press his son is "not a maniac" and was only trying to help a friend.
Damn, Mike!!! You beat me to it...
Besides, what's with the chinese symbolism beign carried around by "Ninjas"...?
I'm just glad that Tad and Jesse didn't run into any of their "impure" foes before the cops caught up with them... The emergeny room would likely be extracting arrows from their asses right now...
Yup, Mike got me. I was going to ask if one was a student at UK.
They grew up playing to many video games. They were lucky the Mafia boys didn't get ahold of them first.
Too bad they got caught before some "gene pool cleaning" had taken place. Either way, them or the people they were going after would have took some of the muck outta the pool. Idiots.
Then I realized that he deserved it.
Nevertheless, I do hope he never reads it. I know that he has to learn to handle these comments—after all, the tattoo was his own choice—but he also deserves a little gentle handling, too, while he's growing up.
He's really a nice, intelligent kid.
I thought I was remarkably gentle.
(Then again, I spent last year among the "rough men" of Orwell's quote.)
WTF! The whole time I thought it was a real gun there in his avatar pic. I never really wanted to look at it, just glanced during postings but I would like to get another look just to satisfy my curiosity.
He Who Must Not Be Named should at least be pleased with his notoriety. Everyone here knows who we're talking about without so much as mentioning his "handle."
CNN is reporting that while the ninjas' pride was damaged from the arrest, their eyes were unharmed thanks in part to a pair of high quality glasses, which were reported to be Oaklies.
no, not really.....
hmm i thought he vowed to "never come back" on his own also. course i can't say it meant enough to me to actually read the "banned" at his avatar lol
If you would like a little laughter, just google up our old buddies name and read some of the other 4 or 5 boards posting that lead to him being banned those 4 or 5 boards too. It was a good funny half hour of my life, I'd recommend it.
I just Googled my own username and the whole first page is dedicated to me.
It also appears that a Mexican rapper has stolen my username and is using it for his own financial gain. I knew I should have have put a registered trademark on it.
No Steve, I am not him. I apologize if I have lead you to believe that I am a celebrity. My username is based on something entirely different.
