Port Teen Threatens to 'Punch,' 'Beat,' and 'Stab' Teen on Twitter

A 19-year-old Port Washington woman has used social media before to threaten the 16-year-old teen, and police have given her a final warning.

A 19-year-old Port Washington woman has been warned to stay away from a 16-year-old Port girl after sending harrassing "tweets" on Twitter, threatening to "punch," "beat" and "stab" the teen.

The 16-year-old and her mother visited the at 2:22 p.m. Aug. 6 with copies of the tweets that were posted after an argument ensued between the 19-year-old and the teen, according to a police report from the department.

The tweets said:

  • "GOD I REALLY WANNA (EXPLETIVE) PUNCH THIS (EXPLETIVE)."
  • "I will pay ANYONE to beat the (expletive) out of this dumb (expletive)(expletive)."
  • "I will give you money to stab the (expletive) out of her."

All messages were directed at the 16-year-old on Twitter, the report said. 

The two women have a history of not getting along, and the 19-year-old in the past had used Facebook as a way to send similar harrassing messages. Though those messages were reported, the 19-year-old had not been warned about the Facebook posts.

The 19-year-old was told to not have any contact or post any further messages about the 16-year-old, or she would be cited for her behavior.

Especially since she has done this harassment before, a warning is entirely inappropriate.

I don't really understand the port cops sometimes. They will take a zero tolerance approach to something like barking dogs and cite without warning, and then they do something like this. Just no consistency.
