Methuen Police Chief Joe Solomon told The Valley Patriot this afternoon that Carmen D’Ambrosio sent a text message and posted terrorist threats on social media.

“We took this very seriously,” Chief Solomon said.

“He posted a threat in the form of  rap where he mentioned the White House, the Boston Marathon bombing, and said ‘everybody you will see what I am going to do, kill people.”

Superintendent of Schools Judy Scannell said that the student was not in school today, but that a student at Methuen High School saw the posting on Facebook and notified the school administration who notified police. 

“Once again we have to commend the Methuen High School Student who came forward, we always say, if you see something, say something, and that’s what this student did. We also want to commend the school safety officers and the administration for bringing this to our attention immediately. Threats of this kind of violence is unacceptable and will not be tolerated, not in Methuen they won’t.”

Dambrosio44The police chief says that D’Ambrosio faces up to 20 years for felony charges of communicating terrorist threats under MGL. Ch. 269, Section 14.  Bail has been set at $1MIL. 

D’Ambrosio lives on Glenn Avenue in Methuen and was arrested on Pleasant Street near Highland.

“We got the tip around 1pm and by 1:30 we had him in custody,” the chief said. 

“I do want to make clear he did not make a specific threat against the school or any particular individuals but he did threaten to kill a bunch of people and specifically mentioned the Boston Marathon and the White House. The threat was disturbing enough for us to act and I think our officers did the right thing.”

D’Ambrosio will be arraigned  Thursday morning in Lawrence District Court. 

dambrosio0090D’Ambrosio also had disturbing photos and posts on his Facebook page including “Fuck politics, Fuck Obama and Fuck the government!!”

He also had a “disturbing satanic photo posted as well as a photo of himself on a “Wanted Poster” that reads “Wanted Dead or Alive” a quick perusal of his Facebook page shows D’Ambrosio’s unusual interest in gangs, violence and a criminal lifestyle. 

D’Ambrosio also has a Youtube page where he raps about “living in da hood” in Methuen.

The Valley Patriot will update this story as more information becomes available.

    this is an overreaction. he’s just a punk kid, 20 years? It’s not terrorism, once you realize he isn’t affiliated with anything having to do with terrorist or gang groups then you should let him go, this is ridiculous.

So we have artist like Jay-Z saying he’s going to rape and murder women and children in his music but we should leave him alone. You have millions of Americans right now in the web posting antigovernment and anti Obama threats online yet we don’t hear “millions to be charge with up to 20 years federal prison time for FBI post” do you? It’s because that is a ridiculous. I would say freedom of speech but as we all know living in America if its anti establishment tere is no freedoms of speech. Poor kid is just being made an example.

      I am astounded by the level of stupidity the general American populace continues to display on a daily basis. I am ashamed that I have had children that will grow into adults in this pathetic excuse for a society – where fear is the prime mover, and people who lack spine (or lack the basic ability to read and comprehend the US Constitution), are so willing to roll over their rights in exchange for “safety theater”.

      People that justify the arrest of this child for expressing his 1st amendment rights are sad, pathetic individuals who, one can only hope, will one day rise up from the oppression that is their inherent fear and become productive, intelligent, free thinking members of society once more.

      And good for you, comrade schoolfriend, McCarthyism is alive and well again it seems.

      You need to read more about what is going on with this. Not just what you see in one article written by someone trying to make a name for himself.
      Example. The media printed:
      “(Expletive) a boston bominb wait till u see the (expletive) I do, I’ma be famous”
      The actual line is:
      “(Expletive) a boston bominb wait till u see the (expletive) I do, I’ma be famous rapping”
      See how the media cuts out just the word “rapping” and it changes the whole context of what is in his song?

      Perhaps you’re the one that needs to pull your head out of the sand.

      Read the actual law here:

      Which also says THIS:
      (e) Nothing in this section shall authorize the criminal prosecution of picketing, public demonstrations or other similar forms of expressing views.

      Terror threats” are specific, not general. No terrorist threats were made in the video, not even general ones. It is a rap song. In fact, it is less controversial than the Eminem song saying he will tie a woman to the bed and set the house on fire if she ever tries to leave him again. Why is Eminem not in jail? Because its a song. Why is this kid in jail? I think it is pretty obvious: Kids, don’t express your views, don’t create art, don’t exercise your constitutional rights, because morons acting in groups will fall all over themselves to be offended and make an example of you.

      The schools in this country are way too powerful. The cops are way too powerful. The prosecutors are way too powerful.

      Once this becomes “news” they have to justify it so they don’t look foolish. Might be too late for that. The cop said they can’t tell if it’s a rap video. Really?

      The cop on the news video said they took action BECAUSE they are in a heightened state of awareness. Wow. What happens when they are in a less heightened state? Maybe THEN we can have our liberties back?

      THAT statement is “people have to keep in mind that we are in, in a heightened state of awareness and we do take any threat, um, whether it’s veiled whether it’s open, we do take it very seriously.” Is this not a veiled threat that they will do the same thing to any of us? They are watching and listening, and they will be looking for any excuse to do this to you and me. Who is the terrorist? Hard to tell these days isn’t it?

    I do think he has some mental issues though, and I believe he does these kind of things because he is scared and bullied. I think these things are the root of the problem along with no caring parents. He has been posting crap like this for years, and now mpd decide it’s time to slam him with charges like this, terrible times indeed.

    i went to methuen high. he is not the only person that makes death threats in that school, and the threats made by most of those kids were feeble attempts to earn street credibility. while i do consider the possibility that this may have been a threat, chances are hes just a regular high school kid trying to earn himself some credibility.

      What does this have to do with race? This article is about a teenage male saying explicit threatening things in a rap which should not be taken serious, yet you want to make an argument about American Caucasians vs the world. You want to know why the rest of the world hates America? It is because of people like you. You honestly think the world is out to get you, when in honesty nobody gives a fcuk about you. Statistically speaking there is more black on black violence than black on white, but why are we even speaking about that? Nobody is oppressing white America, only your paranoia and fears. You talk about radical groups, but you are a radical yourself. What is there to gain with your type of attitude besides more blood and hardship?

        @malcolm king…The fact that a WHITE boy is facing 20 yrs, w/1 mil bond speaks volumes…LOUD & CLEAR. Where were these ‘concerned authorities’, namely, the JUSTICE DEPT. when the ‘new’ black panthers were threatening people at the VOTING precincts? Where was the JUSTICE DEPT when they went on YOUTUBE and TELEVISION threatening to KILL WHITE BABIES? Where is the NATIONAL OUTCRY from the NAACP, SHARPTON, JACKSON et al while there is an ESCALATION IN BLACK ON WHITE ATTACKS, BRUTAL BEATINGS, RAPES, MURDERS, DOUSING WITH FLAMMABLES & SETTING WHITE PEOPLE ON FIRE? Where is the NATIONAL OUTCRY for the ESCALATING BLACK ON WHITE–NON-PROVOKED–ATTACKS in ALL the American Cities? I’ll tell you where: SILENT. You wanted to be treated as ‘equals’ you got it. You wanted ‘civil liberties’, you got it. You wanted ‘Affirmative Action’ you got it. You wanted the TEST SCORES LOWERED SO YOU COULD BECOME ‘COPS’ and ‘FIRE FIGHTERS’, ‘CITY WORKERS,’ ‘GOV. WORKERS’ you got it. You didn’t think WHITE AMERICA would ELECT A ‘BLACK’ PRESIDENT, but you got that too. So the ‘playing field’ is leveled; in fact YOUR BLACK PRESIDENT HAS BEEN ELECTED TWICE NOW. So please explain to the American people, WHY DO BLACKS GET A ‘FREE’ PASS? Why aren’t the ‘new’ black panthers going to jail for 20 years? Why aren’t they incarcerated for TERRORISM with ONE MILLION DOLLAR BONDS? And WHY doesn’t ‘Jesse Jackson,’ ‘Al Sharpton,’ et al, STAND UP AGAINST VIOLENCE FOR ALL OF US? They said it was a RAINBOW coalition but it’s NOT…It is a BLACK COALITION, FOR AND BY BLACK PEOPLE, ALL DAY, EVERY DAY. So again, for the WHITE BOY who is facing 20 years and an outrageous ‘bond,’ WHITE AMERICA: YOU NEED TO STOP THIS NONSENSE…STAND UP FOR YOUR RACE…NO ONE ELSE WILL DO IT BUT YOURSELVES……

      Since you seem to be a young adult like your former classmate up there, I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt. However, think on this a minute – one day you may say something that someone else finds offensive, or vaguely threatening – you may find yourself in the same position.

      There is a reason that there is a Bill of Rights – I suggest those of you young folks who think that this is a “good thing” look into them, study them, and understand the history behind their formation. If you don’t cherish your rights (and, by extension, the rights of others who may be different than you), then you, by default, will slowly and surely see yourself stripped of those rights; slowly, imperceptibly, until you wonder where they went, and why you are all of the sudden a criminal.

      I’ll continue to support the Bill of Rights, thank you, no matter how repugnant someone’s speech may be, I will gladly die to preserve their right to speak.

    The land of the free, where freedom of speech isn’t allowed. GREAT JOB GUYS. It’s pathetic that American officials overact to such a small thing. Honestly he’s just a kid that made a small mistake and didn’t fully realise, nor I doubt mean what he was saying. They’re literally just doing this so they can be seen to be taking terrorism seriously. They can’t catch the terrorist organisations at the root of the problem so they just go and arrest a kid for saying a rap. Most raps have some form of “anti-people” speech in anyway. It’s a joke America, I’m disappointed in your policing. Thank God I’m not American.

Obama did good not to close Guantanamo, he thinks of the children!
    But some of the blame also goes to Youtube and Facebook, who let people just post everything on their websites. There should be moderators that screen everything before it gets published, and then have anyone arrested that posts offending material, it’s the only way to protect our society.

It’s hard not to feel some pity for him and wonder what is happening to our society that it has to call such a thing “terrorism”. Who has been terrorized by this happy, baby-faced boy?

      The kid is a immature idiot who more than likely is harmless. BUT he is an adult. He is 18. If anyone forgot the actual terrorist at the Boston Marathon was 19 so “kids” are capable of these acts. He won’t be serving 20 years, but he deserves to be punished. All threats need to be taken seriously and that is what the police are doing.

      Tom – why don’t you stop writing stupid articles so people don’t have to waste their time writing pointless editorials. (Good link bait, though.) I feel like I’m taking crazy pills or we live in a fascist state. Thank God most people on here seem to understand how the constitution works. It’s literally sickening that a paper with “Patriot” in it’s title has so little respect for freedom. This kid is an idiot but he isn’t a writer for a newspaper. You should be ashamed of yourself.

    While I agree that he Shouldn’t be given 20 years for simply writing a rap song about terrorism, I do believe he needs to take this as a wake up call and do something else with his life.

    The kid is stupid. And a lot of the posters on here are equally dumb. Unless there are specific plans on his computer and a stockpile of illegal weapons and/or ties to terrorist organizations (which I highly doubt) the charge should be reduced down to a reasonable slap on the wrist. Saying you are going to bomb the White House is akin to threatening the president and yes lots of people are investigated for the same thing and it usually amounts to nothing. But going after the kid who notified the school? That is totally irresponsible. You never know when someone is serious. I suppose some of you would have helped hide the Marathon bomber’s backpack & computer because you hate the big bad government more than you hate killers.

    This is insane people did Greenday get arrested when they came out with American Idiot did Ice tea get arrested with cop killer. First of all the kid said fuck the government in my eyes that doesn’t make him cruel that doesn’t mean he is anti American since when did our love for America get based on how much we respect the guys in suits that don’t care about regular Americans? The DA that arrested this kid should be let go. The parents should stand by there kid and give the school, and police dept. one hell of a lawsuit. Meanwhile while there playing games with this kid, the next asshole is getting ready to do something, my guess is it’s that anti muslim the FBI investigated a few months ago, but were to damn lazy to do there jobs.

    A “disturbing satanic photo”? Disturbing to whom? To a Christian? How in hell (no humor intended) is a satanic photo evidence of criminal intent? Why is this even mentioned? It seems to me this is just an attempt to blackwash the kid’s character such as it is, and prejudice Christians against him. Truly shameful. And we have the nerve to criticize Muslims …

      Patty o, sounds to me like your perfect world is where everyone is locked up, with no rights, not allowed to talk or share their thoughts. Everyone must believe in the same things and act the same way. The world just isn’t like that my dear; the sooner you realized that the better off your life will hopefully be. Take off the blinders too

    I am guessing you have never listened to any of the rap stars. Why not blow things ALL OUT OF shape. Your police and DA should remove their heads from where there is no sun. It is ashame you can not enforce laws about bullying. Your policy is do not investigate or react but over react.

    In no way I am justifying this adolescents rage and violent outbursts. Terrorism charges are heavy handed, I suggest taking a good hard look at the environment he lives in. I bet its not right out of the brady bunch…

    Umm…DA you are clinically insane. Remember that to be a threat under state or federal law a target and a means specified. Neither in the rap nor the lyrics is there either. So, I would have to argue for the DA to be removed from office. Furthermore, the Police Department needs to be reprimanded publicly for failure to enforce the law correctly.

    Moving on, I would neither call the pictures or interests disturbing. First, while you are at it poke around most high school aged guys FB pages. I would bet that the majority feature something ‘gangster’ posted. Second, it is not against the law to disagree or make statements of opinion against the government.

    Summary: Lyrics were poorly written and don’t rhyme. However, there is nothing that institutes a threat on legal grounds: no target and no implied means. Furthermore, we have to remember it is a rebelling non-conforming teenager we are talking about.

    *Seriously, if I could dig up the crazy foolish you all did at that age. I am sure I could find something equally charge-able if that is the standard. If you claim otherwise, I move to have you charged for fraud (statements).

    No evidence of planning, no target specified, no means specified. NOT Guilty! Correct legal procedure: Acquittal/Dismissal.

    *New law proposal: Lawyers are to be subjected to the same punishments as the ‘victim’ in false prosecutions. No exceptions!*

    Zero tolerance and law enforcement these days don’t mix too well. The police department shall be sued for financial compensation of the child’s attorney and family loss. I feel the guy should be released with no questions asked and boys will be boys type of deal but learn from the mistake here and just give up on the entire rap deal then move away from such a small town due to the fact this guy’s reputation has been put to shreds, moving may not help but it should help the exposure of his well being…

    It seems fairly obvious to me that none of you have read what was ACTUALLY posted on his Facebook. This is a complete overreaction and it’s obvious that this D’Ambrosio isn’t involved in the planning or execution of any terrorist acts; taking him to court over something as petty as this is ridiculous. As for the “Satanic photo” (which, by the way, is NOT a photograph), it’s at least as comical as it is disturbing.

    Whilst law enforcement in England isn’t perfect, instances like this make me glad I don’t live in America.

    Cameron D’Ambrosio is a gifted rapper whose talent promises we will be hearing more about him.

    This future rapping star, or should I say, already famous rapper Cameron D’Ambrosio, is currently in jail to satisfy petty nanny state officials who were offended by his first amendment protected lyrics.

    The snitches who told on him, the officials who followed the complained, and the government lawyers, including the prosecutor and judge, should be ashamed of themselves, read the first amendment to the constitution and the lyrics to his song, grow some chest hair, which they are obviously lacking, and realize that art is protected speech to be cherished.

    Cameron D’Ambrosio, the gifter rapper, now has a choice as to what to do with his talent, shy away and tremble at the government threats of imprisonment, or keep on being himself, fight the government in court, make them look like the ridiculous wanna be nanny statists that they are, win in court and continue on with his rapping career showcasing their silly and dangerous ways in his lyrics.

    I look forward to Cameron D’Ambrosio’s nascent career and to the fruits of his talent.

    And as many rappers have and will continue to say to the fascist petty criminals in the state’s dole; “Fuck the government!”

    Rappers everywhere are spreading the news and showing solidarity in this clear case of prosecution of an art form born of struggle and ambition.

    You can help him by visiting this link and making a small contribution to freedom of speech, the constitution, and to the growing talent of this young artists, and to keep free speech available to all rappers.

    I appreciate how this newspaper is called “The Valley Patriot,” has patriotic revolutionary war clipart in its logo, and also “Congress shall make no law…” in its masthead…

    … and then its publisher writes a story about a very clear, very disturbing First Amendment violation in a way that’s biased against the defendant and subtly in favor of taking away First Amendment rights. Perhaps “The Valley Redcoat” would be a more suitable name for your newspaper?

    This is NOT A NEWS ARTICLE – at all. period. Obviously this “newspaper” isn’t worth the space it take up on the internet. Their quote about the kid saying he will kill people is fabricated I’m fairly certain. this give the full quote of what he said The only real sort of “patriot” is the one who demands free speech and stands up for what they believe is right -not fabricating stuff to make money or push an agenda of eroding people’s rights

    I love what sheep you all are. You ASSume that because the story reflected badly on someone you laughingly believe he is an innocent flower that somehow we were biased when writing it. WRONG! My PERSONAL position IS and has always been that he was treated WRONGLY by being charged with terrorism but don’t ever let the FACTS get in your way. Apparently you clowns are angry because i DIDN’T inject my personal opinions on D’Ambrosio and i DIDN’T Bias the story based on my personal views.

    WOW what sheep!!
