“… A day after freeing a gang member who posted an anti-cop death threat online, a Brooklyn judge ignored the admonishment of a court boss — and sprung a man who allegedly punched a police officer and threatened to kill his colleagues, The Post has learned. Criminal Court Judge Laura Johnson blatantly disregarded an Office of Court Administration boss who said she “should be setting an example to the public that threatening or assaulting police officers isn’t an acceptable thing,” a courthouse source said … On Tuesday night, Johnson released Travis Maye, 26, without bail following his arrest in a violent melee with cops earlier that day … According to a transcript of Maye’s arraignment hearing, prosecutor Tziyonah Langsam asked for $100,000 bail, reciting the threats Maye allegedly made after being subdued. “Once handcuffed, the defendant yelled, ‘I Googled all of you. Find out where you live. I don’t know about dead cops or your families. I will meet you in a bodega and get you. You will die,’ ” Langsam said …”
If this doesn’t prove the need for more gun control I don’t know what does.
At least one elected official thinks this is bad, though Bill is from Rochester not NYC:
Lunatic judge — will deBlasio re-appoint her to bench? Will be a bellwether decision for future of his Admin – http://t.co/pUWlytv3zB
