It was just a few months ago that Bucks County District Attorney Matt Weintraub attended an event in Elkins Park Pa to call attention to the rise in Jewish hatred. This kind of threatening conduct has never been higher in the United States since World War 2. Over the recent Thanksgiving Day holiday, a male from Warwick Township was allegedly sending harassing and offensive texts to a Jewish male. Not just once. He first sent a Nazi symbol at 12:23 PM on Thanksgiving. He sent them well into the night and only stopped shortly before 1:30 AM on Friday.
According to an affidavit of probable cause filed by investigators from the Buckingham Township Police Department, Ryan sent the victim images depicting a Nazi flag and symbols, photos and a video of Adolf Hitler, an image of Anne Frank followed by a photo of ashes and other vitriolic messages. Ryan was arrested by Buckingham Police and brought before District Justice Maggie Snow who set him free on $50,000 unsecured bail.
