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.

69226 The only way to stop these monsters is through legislation. Everything is on their side, and they know it. That's the problem. It's not that hard to understand. Law has created monsters. Humans by nature, for the most part, tend to be grotesque. I've never understood humans having authority over other humans. It makes no sense. The only way to put them in their place is to punish them as citizens with double punishment for corruption. If you claim to be good and do bad, you must suffer greatly.

6687 Corrupt Judge whacked by Corrupt Cop. Ask any judge if any aspect of family law or VAWA is Constitutional. Their counter argument will be that women needed special protection from the system. No, women needed protection from the system. The system was the same corrupt judges that enforced segregation in the North long after the judges in the South quit enforcing it. Just another example it is the judges, not the vast majority of the people, that need strict rules and enforcement imposed on them.

70190 Get your shit together people, these pigs are the enemy we'll face on the battlefields soon, unless they cower in fear at home like the little pussies they truly are deep inside, along with wife beating, pedophilia, etc. Pigs are the scum of the earth, treat them as such and remember they all get their marching orders from somebody from the top. Find those people and target them for exposure.

95211 If you've ever watched the police/judge dynamic in court, you know that they regularly kiss each other’s ass. I'd bet this judges experience will be forgotten in 3 months and the perp will get a promotion. It's what they do -- no one is allowed to rock the boat or really make any change.

The answer is to quit playing games with these perps. They need their asses handed to them. Just like the scumbag politicians they serve.
