Michigan man given probation for threats to kill children, Jews


David Lenio of Grand Rapids gets probation for threatening to murder Jews. Are we supposed to take comfort in the fact that if does make good on his threats that the papers will report that the police had him on their radar?

Was this reported by any local news sources, or do we have to depend on the Israeli press to find out about potential dangers to the Jewish community?

From the article:

A judge in Grand Rapids, Michigan, on Thursday gave David Lenio, 29, the probation sentence after giving him credit for the four months he served in jail after his February arrest, which ended after his trial in June.

A jury in June acquitted Lenio of two felonies – aggravated stalking and using a computer to commit a crime, and convicted him on the lesser charge of malicious use of telecommunications. He was released from prison on his own recognizance following the June trial.

In addition to probation, Lenio was ordered to stay away from synagogues and schools and to not use computers, Fox17 in West Michigan reported.
