@mrskisstobe:  I don’t know if terroism is the right word, but death threats are definitely actionable for the police especially with his history. She should contact them and tell them what has been going on. She and her children are not safe.

Unfortunately there isn’t much you can do but continue to support her as long as you feel safe to do so. Even with a restraining order, he is still capable of committing violence on her. Many times, it’s after a restraining order is obtained, that these people kill. THat being said, the police need to know this.  If I were her, I’d try and make sure he had no custody of the kids and could not see them, then I’d move and change my numbers and probably even get a new car with new plates. I’d want to be as untraceable as possible to him. I don’t know how feasible that is with teenage children who may want contact with him though.

@mrskisstobe:  Wow he really got to her bad didn’t he. Has she gone to any kind of counseling since they ended their relationship? It sounds like she is still wrapped around his finger and letting her thoughts be controlled by him. A counselor may have mandated reporting for the incidents that happened in front of the children, and they may convince her to go to the police.

@mrskisstobe:  Threatening to kill anyone is, in legal-speak, in the US a “Terroristic Threat”. My abusive ex was charged with “Terroristic Threats” (and convicted) just for telling me he was going to kill me over the phone. The only sticky part is he has to say it directly to her, it can’t be second hand information. I completely get why he’s acting this way. Just because he’s moved on with another woman doesn’t mean that in his mind his ex is any less his property. She needs to call the police the everytime he threatens her with physical harm, she needs to get a PFA and she needs to take him seriously. The absolute most dangerous time in an abused woman’s life is after she leaves her abuser. Please urge her to understand this.

If she has other people’s children in her home I would report her. I’m sorry but if that was my kid at an in-home daycare, I would want to know that the caregiver was receiving death threats.

I just read that she has a home daycare. This absolutely should be reported then.

Can you get her to forward the text messages to you and go to the police yourself? There are an awful lot of minors at risk here.

This is not terrorism… it’s called making a terroristic threat.

@mrskisstobe:  Call the police. It’s really irresponsible for her to not go to the police about this. She is playing Russian roulette with the lives of so many people.
