    What people in what program and where?

    In general it is illegal to harass and threaten others, innocent or not.

    Yes, they are allowed to have cell phones.

    And it's against the law to text "innocent people" (or, for that matter, guilty people) and harass them.

    What's going on?

    Umm no cop should tell you that. But go to the Federal Marshall's office. They administer the program. Tell them you don't care who the guy is you just want him to stop.

    I will add, sorry, no local police officer would or could ever know if someone is in the witness protection program, Even state police will not know, There is nothing in their new ID that will ever tell something.

    Some officer was either lying to you or messing with you for some reason.

    Only the Federal Marshal service ( and not all of them) will know who witness protection people are ( in the federal program)

    So no this man is not in the witness protection program, because if he was and anyone knew, their life would be worthless, and marked for death,

    If he was in the "mob" before, he is hiding from them and for him to do anything to bring attention would bring death to him.

    If he told the officers that, he was just lying to them to sound big.

    File a police report against him. If the police will not do anything, go to the DA.

    But also just don't answer the phone if he calls.

    One other point to add. The Marshalls, will not give you any information. They will neither confirm nor deny anything about this person. They will take your information and they will investigate. But you will probably not know if any action is taken except maybe the guy will stop calling.

    I'm very surprised that nothing is being done. If you have texts that show threats, the police or DA should help. I would go up the line with your local police or DA and demand that action be taken. If you are still not getting anything, go to the media and tell them you are being ignored by the police.

    Hello t:

    US Marshals Service: (202) 307-9100. They administer the program...

    But, I promise you, this guy ISN'T in that program.. The cops LIED to you. Think about it. If the guy was REALLY in witness protection, the cop wouldn't know it.

    I agree with excon, so the question now becomes WHY did the police officer lie to you? I think you need, as I suggested, take this up the line. Something doesn't sound right.
