Be Careful: Save Everything

Nebraskans Unafraid has received at least one report of a recent written threat of violence against a registered person.

Do not ignore messages like this. Save everything you receive because it is evidence. Take a screenshot if necessary. Report any threat to your law enforcement agency and take careful notes on what law enforcement tells you. Audio or video record the law enforcement comments if possible.

Send a copy of the message to Nebraskans Unafraid at nunafrd@gmail.com so that we can track any actions that may have been encouraged by a recent murder in Omaha. We also want to keep records of law enforcement responses.

In Nebraska, it is legal for you to record such a conversation as long as the recording is not made with criminal or tortious intent and you have the consent of at least one party to the conversation. NE Code § 86-290 (definition & penalty), § 86-297 (civil damages)

In Iowa, the consent of at least one party to the conversation also is required. IA Code § 727.8 (eavesdropping definition), § 808B.1 (wiretapping definition), § 808B.2 (definition & penalty), § 808B.8 (civil damages)
