Former friend, who is also a drug dealer, made death threads to my family, roommate and I a month ago. He and I have been arguing since January when his drug used turned into abuse and dealing it. In a moment of frustration I mentioned I would go to the cops. He calls me a day after and invites me to his place where we start chatting about him wanting me to leave him alone, me agreeing to do so and then him getting all irate and calling a guy to come out from the bathroom, wearing a pillow case with eye holes cut out and holding a hunting knive in his right hand. My ex-friend then threatens me, mentions he has had four people offer to take care of me, my place is being watched and they know who comes and goes. I have server all communication with him but am worried in a paranoid moment he may do something.
You might be wise to attempt to take out a restraining order against this person. However, since nothing has happened in a month, the judge may not grant it.
