Cop Karate Chops NY Judge In The Throat

Chris | InformationLiberation

A New York judge got his comeuppance after he happened upon an "unruly crowd" of citizens outraged over a team of police officers engaged in apparent police abuse.

The judge thought the crowd was out of control and the "officers may need help," so he called 911 and told them the cops needed backup.

A few minutes later, one of the cops reportedly "became enraged -- and the judge became his target."

After screaming curses at the crowd, the cop walked up to the judge, who was in plain clothes at the time, and for whatever reason, decided to karate chop him in the throat.

Via The New York Times:
Thomas D. Raffaele, a 69-year-old justice of the New York State Supreme Court, encountered a chaotic scene while walking down a Queens street with a friend: Two uniformed police officers stood over a shirtless man lying facedown on the pavement. The man’s hands were cuffed behind his back and he was screaming. A crowd jeered at the officers.

The judge, concerned the crowd was becoming unruly, called 911 and reported that the officers needed help.

But within minutes, he said, one of the two officers became enraged — and the judge became his target. The officer screamed and cursed at the onlookers, some of whom were complaining about what they said was his violent treatment of the suspect, and then he focused on Justice Raffaele, who was wearing a T-shirt and jeans. The judge said the officer rushed forward and, using the upper edge of his hand, delivered a sharp blow to the judge’s throat that was like what he learned when he was trained in hand-to-hand combat in the Army.

The episode, Friday morning just after midnight — in which the judge says his initial complaint about the officer was dismissed by a sergeant, the ranking supervisor at the scene — is now the focus of investigations by the police Internal Affairs Bureau and the Civilian Complaint Review Board.

The judge said he believed the officer also hit one or two other people during the encounter on 74th Street near 37th Road, a busy commercial strip in Jackson Heights. But he said he could not be sure, because the blow to his throat sent him reeling back and he then doubled over in pain.

“I’ve always had profound respect for what they do,” Justice Raffaele said of the police, noting that he was “always very supportive” of the department during the more than 20 years he served on Community Board 3 in Jackson Heights before becoming a judge. At one point in the early 1990s, he added, he helped organize a civilian patrol in conjunction with the police. “And this I thought was very destructive.”

[...]The judge said he was in “a lot of pain” and went with Mr. Rashid to the emergency room at Elmhurst Hospital Center, where a doctor examined his throat by snaking a tube with a camera on the end through his nose and down his throat to determine whether his trachea had been damaged. The doctor, he said, found no damage; Justice Raffaele was released and told to see his personal doctor for follow-up care.

When they first came upon the crowd, the judge said, he was immediately concerned for the officers and called 911. After he made the call, he said, he saw that one of the officers — the one who he said later attacked him — was repeatedly dropping his knee into the handcuffed man’s back.

His actions, the judge said, were inflaming the crowd, some of whom had been drinking. But among others who loudly expressed their concern, he said, was a woman who identified herself as a registered nurse; she was calling to the officer, warning that he could seriously hurt the unidentified man, who an official later said was not charged.
Perhaps the judge should have joined the "unruly" crowd rather than rush to call for more goon-squads in uniform.

Hopefully, it's a lesson learned.

Maybe now he'll understand and believe when people make claims about the violence, unruliness, arrogance, and incompetence of police forces everywhere.

18444 A bad scene -- to be sure. But maybe bad scenes are what we we need right now. We have been complacent sheep for so long that we now have wolves (aka criminals) running our government, police and military. This has to stop.

The judges need to know just how violent these cops are so they can

START PROTECTING CIVILIANS FROM THE THUGS IN UNIFORM.

Hopefully now he will think twice before letting these cops get away
with crime and murder.

Its a sad situation, but a lesson that obviously needed to be learned.

752 It used to be said that a conservative who has been arrested becomes a liberal, and a liberal who has been mugged becomes a conservative.

So what is a judge who is mugged by a cop who learned how to attack civilians by being in the military?

Awakened to the reality of our situation, I hope.

164107 I hope this fucking pig loses his job. Then it will be less of a penalty for those that kick his fucking ass to oblivion. COPS ARE THE ENEMY. People need to open their eyes and realize these bastards are mentally fucked authoritarians. The are not out to "Serve and Protect". More like 'Injure, Intimidate, and brutalize." More states need to follow Indiana's lead and protect their citizens. If a cop busts your door down without a warrant, kill that fucker.

50104 164107 - What? What about Indiana? What have they (we) done?

I'll tell you, I've lived in Indiana all my life and I see crap going down in other places and I think: not gonna happen here. Too many permitted and not-permitted gun owners carrying.

In fact, the good guys (who are not cops) are revered and protected by the citizens from the police.

Knock and ask nicely. There maybe more than one set of sights on you when you enter an Indiana home.

32166 50104: An Indiana court decided that Indiana citizens DID NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO RESIST WARRANTLESS SEARCHES AND VIOLATIONS OF THEIRE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS, but must depend on the courts and cop loving judges to get justice for these abuses. Apparently the state has passed a law giving you that contradicts this ruling.

7588 The judge will do nothing. He now KNOWS that his and his extended family members are under the control of these gun wielding thugs. If he tries to make a difference watch for something to happen to a family member. Even when the law is broken and video taped nothing happens,as the LEO always says that the situation was dynamic and the tape fails to show the entire situation. No charges brought and no justice sought, the thin blue line holds.
