I guess if you’re going to be a vigilante, then you may as well try to do it with a little style.
The Clifton police in New Jersey recently arrested a couple dudes who were dressed like ninjas and armed with “Asian martial arts weapons” while they were delivering warning letters to drug dealers and users.
It gets better. They claimed to be “Shinobi warriors”, and had knives, throwing stars, swords, nunchucks, and bow and arrows on them. They got charged with weapons possession and one of them was charged with leaving a harassing letter for his ex-girlfriend (if you’re going to be harassing drug dealers, then I guess you might as well get some personal grudges settled at the same time).
The letters stated that the “Shinobi will stop your cruel and sadistic intentions with justified yet, merciful force.” and accused the dealers with having “committed sin of passing impurity” to others and that the “wind guides us to those of impure heart and intent.”
Nerds with weapons. Wow. This could be an extremely entertaining trend.
