De Blasio aides were encouraging New York Democrats to criticize the NYPD for turning their backs on him and humiliating him.
Now he reappoints a judge who freed without bail two men who had threatened the life of cops right after the double murder of two officers?
And De Blasio wonders why the NYPD despises him…
Via NY Post:
Mayor de Blasio delivered another blow to New York’s Finest on Wednesday when he reappointed a Brooklyn judge who freed without bail two men who threatened cops just days after the Bed-Stuy double police assassination.
The stunning decision came even as one of the suspects — a gang member charged with posting police death threats online — skipped out on a court date and had a warrant out for his arrest, sources said.
Brooklyn Criminal Court Judge Laura Johnson had faced a midnight expiration of her term. She was appointed by Mayor Mike Bloomberg in January 2013.
Her one-year, interim reappointment by de Blasio outraged law-enforcement officials a day after he met with the heads of five police unions to heal his fractured relationship with cops.
