Self-professed 'Proud Boy' arrested after allegedly threatening to blow up North Dakota voting location
'I think this is an isolated incident and we don't believe that anyone is in any immediate danger,' a Dickinson Police officer said.
, debate moderator Chris Wallace asked Trump if he was willing to condemn white supremacists and tell militia groups to"stand down." The president answered by saying that the Proud Boys should"stand back and stand by," a comment many said was a call to arms.
Gavin McInnes, the group's founder, toldThe New York Timesin September that there was not"some sort of secret standing army" of Proud Boys and militiamen waiting for Trump's order to engage in street fighting. But if violent protests are to continue around the country, he said,"ordinary Americans are finally going to say, 'We're sick of you burning down our cities,' and they're going to start fighting back."
After being notified of the email, officers with Dickinson's investigations team traced its origin, determining an IP address for the computer and ultimately locating and arresting Raymond without incident.Dickinson Police Sgt. Joe Cianni toldNewsweek

We certainly have no reason to believe that anyone was (or is), in any immediate danger," he wrote in an email."It is truly and assuredly safe to vote at any of the various polling locations in Stark County and all other jurisdictions across the state of North Dakota."
The investigation is ongoing, and officers are working through video surveillance footage, Cianni said. Raymond remains at the Southwest Multi-County Correctional Center where he is awaiting a bond hearing.Cianni described Raymond as an"intellectually challenged Dickinson resident" who is not believed to have any affiliation with the Proud Boys.
Raymond will be found guilty of terrorizing if prosecutors determine he intended to"place another human being in fear for the human being's or another's safety" by threatening to"commit any crime of violence or act dangerous to human life" or"falsely informs another that a situation dangerous to human life...knowing that the information is false," according to the North Dakota Century Code.
The crime is considered a class C felony in North Dakota, punishable by up to five years' imprisonment and up to $5,000 in fines. Cianni speculated the motive behind Raymond's actions, telling thePressthat he doesn't know"why people do some of the things they do."
"Some of them have some issues going on in their lives and mental health disabilities. There's such a variety of things which causes people to commit crimes that I can't really pin it down," he said, adding that it could boil down to someone having a bad day and being"frustrated with what's been occurring throughout the day or throughout the week."
Voters cast their early ballots for the 2020 Presidential election at the Brooklyn Museum in New York City on October 30, 2020. Police officers in North Dakota arrested a self-professed “Proud Boy” on October 28 after he allegedly threatened to blow up a voting location.
