CONCUR BY: Stevens
I join this Court's per curiam affirmance. Nevertheless, I wish to emphasize my view that the communication of threats made by a probationer to an intended victim is not a requirement to find the probationer engaged in " assaultive behavior" in violation of the general condition for special probation or parole set forth in 37 Pa. Code § 65.4(5)(iii).
