Re: threatening a child
You may contact the police department or a complaint department of your local prosecutor's office and explain the situation to them. Make sure to retain all documentary evidence of the threats for the police/DA's review. If the police/ prosecutor's office feel that a criminal prosecution is warranted in this case, they will likely attempt to arrest the suspect and, at that point, the victim (your son) should be entitled to an order of protection.
