    CLIFTON, N.J. — Police arrested two men dressed like ninjas and armed with Asian martial arts weapons who said they were delivering warning letters to drug dealers and users.

    Calling themselves "Shinobi warriors," the men carried knives, throwing stars, swords, nunchucks and a bow and arrows.

    Tadeusz Tertkiewicz, 20, and Jesse Trojaniak, 19, were each charged with weapons possession. Tertkiewicz is also charged with harassment for a letter left for an ex-girlfriend.

    The letters warned drug users and drug dealers that the "Shinobi will stop your cruel and sadistic intentions with justified yet, merciful force."
    In the letter, the two men accused drug dealers and users of having "committed sin of passing impurity" to others and that the "wind guides us to those of impure heart and intent."

    "Their intentions may have been good, but we tell everyone that they shouldn't take the law into their own hands because it will cause more problems for everyone in the long run," Detective Capt. Robert Rowan said.
    Trojaniak's father told The Associated Press his son is "not a maniac" and was only trying to help a friend.

    Without knowing what the drug dealers are selling and knowing what the drug users are using, it's hard to provide a sided opinion :)

    If it's meth -- hmm it seems more amusing.
    If they are cannabis dealers and buyers --- Fuck those twits.

    Not to say the "dealers" can't sell poison and medicine at the same time.

    NINJA!! This guy would have been more effective IMHO.

    Did the ninjas ever hear the saying "don't bring a knife to a gun fight"?

    Knives, throwing stars, swords, nunchucks and a bow and arrows aren't going to do them much good when they're suffering from acute lead poisining from a .45 cal hollow point.

    If they dress up like a Ninjas and go off hunting "drug-dealers" - just how smart do you think these people are? Do you think they could differentiate between someone selling their friend half their grass, from some character selling crack out of an abandoned building? Put 'em both in Dr. Dippy's Retreat for a month or two.

    Those kids are going to be in even more trouble when the real ninjas hear about this.

    At least they only got two of my ninjas. The rest got away.

    Next time gadget, next time...

    Ah well. Those ninja freaks are too gay to get the job done. I'll just send these:

    Ha. That is funny. I had an office in Clifton, NJ. Kind of a blue collar town. Mix of all races. I liked Clifton. I would suspect that they were after crack and hard drug dealers. Not pot. I think possibly heroin and crack and meth. There always was a martila arts store on main street in Clifton. That is where they probably got their costumes.

    If you would like to see a very funny website check this out.

    Why couldn't they have dressed up as street-mimes and gone off looking for dope-dealers to beat up? That would be much scarier in my opinion. Or ballerinas....

    Well you have to understand. I have been in the martial arts for 30 years. You see amoung many people in it the there is a sense of "duty" or rightousness. Many are fixated on the "wrong" in the world. Like Chuck Norris and being the hero. Overcoming drug people. I mean even Chuck is all rapped up in fundamentalist Christianity and an anti drug campaign. So being a Ninja and being against drugs go hand in hand. But from a psychology of the martial arts I canm see how these kids were thinking. But the funny thing is that people that dress up as Ninjas and walk around with weapons are most likely not very adept at fighting. So it is good the cops stopped these boys for their own good.

    As one kid says on the Ninja website:

    Ninjas are sooooooooooo sweet that I want to crap my pants. I can't believe it sometimes, but I feel it inside my heart. These guys are totally awesome and that's a fact. Ninjas are fast, smooth, cool, strong, powerful, and sweet. I can't wait to start yoga next year. I love ninjas with all of my body (including my pee pee).

    If these ninjas came to the hot spots in my part of the world they would at best be laughed at and worst shot very quickly.And it has to be worse in New Jersey,the ninjas are lucky to be alive!

    Alfa just made me laugh harder than I thought was possible, especially after the reading the OP.

    they must be going after high school pot dealers who slang some E or shrooms on the side, cause swim knows some guys who deal heroin and crack who would shoot their asses with a 9mm before they can get there faggy ninja stars thrown.

    fuck those 2 fucks, judging every drug dealer and user, whether selling or consuming 'hard' or 'soft' drugs as bad people is bullshit. sure i know some bad dealers and users, but their not bad because there a dealer or user, their bad cause their bad people.
    swim only asociates with users/addicts who are honest, mellow and decent, as far dealers swim only deals with those that conduct there buisness like a buisness not like a scene from the movie 'scar face'.

    I think that I must change my stance on D.A.R.E. classes. I think this is the first proof ever that they do have an effect on kids.

    If someone had told me, when I was ten, that DARE would turn me into a ninja, I would totally have signed up.

    I'm pretty sure I know these kids, I grew up in Clifton- don't live there anymore, though. It sounds to me like this was a dumb joke that got taken way too seriously.

    It is kind of funny. But I worked out at a gym in Clifton that had a martial arts studio in it. Well there was this guy at the gym who was all into Ninja stuff. He wanted to spar me. So we put on the gloves. He basically was terrible. I pounded the poor kid a good deal. Finally he just ran at me growling like and animal, clawing and doing all kinds of crazy things. I hit him a couple of more times and put him on the ground.

    The next day I came to the gym and the kid asked to talk to me. He sat on this training table cross legged in the lotus position like a swami. He asked me how I thought he did fighting me. I replied that I thought he needed some work. Maybe actually take some lessons. He nodded his head and agreed but repeatedly asked what I thought. He did not mean about his technical boxing or fighting. He meant... What did I think about his Ninja spirit? So I was nice and told him his spirit was good. After that he kept trying to get me to teach him. He would bring me all these little gifts like karate patches and things from the martial arts store on the main street. He always kept this attitude with me like I had some secret knowledge. It was quite funny.

    Who knows maybe Ninja stuff is big for some reason in Clifton. I dunno...

    But as I said the Ninja people have this idea of being the white Knights of the universe. They are all fascinated by this guy "Ashida Kim". He is the laughing stock of the martial arts community. He makes tapes and videos for people who believe in his stuff. These are usually people that never actually took the time to learn the martial arts. So they buy his tapes and books. And they are complete nonsense. They deal with all these nonsensical topics like jumping off buildings and infiltrating "enemy strong holds". But these people think Ashida Kim is a God. The following video basically shows the stuff that these impressionable kids are sold.

    Another case of mind your own fucking business. Thats some retarded shit, in my home town as mentioned above, you dont think the crack heads have tried hard enough to fuck there dealer over? Much less some tards in a ninja suit thinking there sent to police the world or distill fear in people like jesse james or some shit, ha they wouldn't rob or stop anyone from doing shit here, they would definitely be dead and never found probably. It happens around here sometimes for no reason, usually to do with politcal people though, they should consider themselfs lucky that thats all they got was jail.
