Police Blast Judge After Man Tried To Steal Officers Gun At Precinct

I do not understand what goes through the heads of some people.

One liberal judge who clearly has no respect for police enforcement or public safety recently released one man after he lunged for an officer’s gun.

Yeah, true story.

According to NBC New York:

The city’s police and sergeant’s benevolent associations are blasting a judge’s decision to release a man who tried to take an officer’s gun Sunday, saying it’s putting police officers at risk.

Kurdel Emmanuel, 29, entered the precinct at Bushwick on Saturday morning and lunged at a female officer, trying to take her gun from her holster, police said.

The officer fought him off, and Kurdel was taken into custody, police said […]

Emmanuel was charged with robbery and assault, and when the district attorney requested a $250,000 bail, Judge Loren Baily-Schiffman released him on his own recognizance, said the Kings County District Attorney’s Office.

“This is a sickening display of carelessness or callousness by a judge who should be fully aware of similarity in the circumstances between this thug’s crime and the assassination of Police Officer Miosotis Familia,” said PBA President Pat Lynch.

The judge had no comment.

Because, what in the world would he say?

“Well, I mean, it’s not that big of deal.”

“It’s just the safety of another human being…a human being who serves to protect everyone else.”

“I mean, it’s not like the suspect actually got the gun.”

What is there to say? Really?

This is absolutely unbelievable. No wonder people believe they can get away with murder…
