Cop Who Karate Chopped NY Judge In Throat Gets Off Scot-Free

Chris | InformationLiberation

Remember the Judge who came upon an "unruly" crowd angry over police abusing a suspect and called 911 to "help" police get backup, only to be singled out himself by a raging cop who proceeded to assault him by chopping him in the throat? If you remember, he was a huge supporter of police, “I’ve always had profound respect for what they do,” he told the New York Times. Turns out, now that he's the one in the victim's seat, he's had a change of heart. In fact, he says he's now "amazed" how multiple police lied about what took place, he says his beating and the ensuing cover-up is "really changing my view of the force."

Via The Huffington Post:
No criminal charges will be filed against an NYPD officer accused of violently striking a New York state Supreme Court justice in the throat in an unprovoked attack earlier this summer, the Queens district attorney said Wednesday.

Judge Thomas Raffaele, who reported the alleged assault, called the DA's decision "shocking" and accused the NYPD officers involved of lying to cover up their misconduct.

"For this to happen, for me to be attacked by a cop -- and for the cops to do this huge cover up -- it's really changing my view of the force," Raffaele told The Huffington Post.

Raffaele said he is strongly considering filing a lawsuit against the police department over the alleged attack. "It may be that there is no other option," he said.

In a statement, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said his office lacked the evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the officer "intentionally and unjustifiably" struck the judge.

"We find that there is insufficient evidence of criminality to support a charge that the police officer acted with intent to injure," Brown said.

The alleged assault on the judge happened as police officers were restraining a man who was reportedly chasing people with a metal pipe on a Queens street around midnight in early June.

Raffaele said he came upon two officers restraining the man and called 911 to request that more police respond to the scene, where a large group of people was gathering. The officer allegedly repeatedly drove his knee into the detained man's back, the judge said, causing some in the crowd to shout at him.

At that point, Raffaele said the officer flew into a rage, began screaming obscenities and randomly attacked several people in the crowd. He said he was hit in the throat with a military-style open hand chop that sent him to the hospital for the night.

"This was not some little punch or shove," he said. "It was an all-out military blow to my larynx."

Raffaele said that supervisory officers at the scene refused to take his complaint of being assaulted.

In June, the NYPD said that its internal affairs bureau was working with the Queens DA's office to investigate the judge's claims.

That investigation cleared the officers involved in the episode of criminal conduct.

"After an extensive and thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances of the matter -– that included multiple witness interviews and reviews of police reports and medical records -– my office has concluded that the facts do not warrant the filing of criminal charges," Brown said.

The matter will now be referred to the city's Civilian Complaint Review Board and to the NYPD "for any possible violation" of NYPD rules or procedures.

Brown said that his office had "no opinion" as to whether any administrative or procedural violations took place.

Raffaele criticized the DA's investigation as half-hearted and said that witnesses to the incident were not interviewed for nearly two months, and only after he complained about the slow progress of the probe.

He also accused several NYPD officers of lying about the events by saying that he had behaved "aggressively" toward them.

"I was really amazed that two or three of them lied about it," he said. "It's really damaging to the respect that I've had all my life for the police department."
Watch the video report:



The question I have is how many times did this Judge side with police in his courtroom as the "credible" witnesses they clearly are not? Police constantly lie under oath, get caught, then face no penalty. As I wrote about the time I was called for jury duty, I was the only one who raised my hand when the Judge asked, "Would anyone be less likely, or more likely, to trust the testimony of a police officer by merit of his occupation?" Of course, I was kicked off the jury by the state's prosecutor as a result.

96232 Judge Raffaele, you ought to take into consideration the deference being shown you as a Supreme Court judge ... and I'm not being facetious. If you weren't a judge, you'd find that Queens wouldn't interview your witnesses for over a year, and then they'd dismiss your complaint.

Judge, you ought not let this drop. The fascist training the police are getting and taking out on the public (through the interference of DHS, CIA & FBI) is meant to provoke enough anger to cause an uprising -- which they want, as an excuse to declare martial law, and imprison the populace, killing many on their red/blue hit lists a couple of weeks before the nationwide declaration of martial law.

Just by your filing charges in this matter in which you were a victim (and having personal experience with their unprovoked violence, and lying as a group to cover up their actions) -- that could be enough to put you on one of the lists, because you know the truth now about how they're really treating us. And because of the NDAA, they don't need to announce general martial law, to impose individual martial law on you (for even less cause than when you were chopped in the throat). Once they take you, you have no right to an attorney, or to communicate with anyone -- they can put you in jail, and file a charge in 50 years, or never, or kill you, all without the legal necessity of telling a soul where you are, or what they did.

Do you see? We're in the last remaining hours before the Fourth Reich clamps down and seizes our people by their throats. You might as well fight them, because for a certainty, they will target the judges (particularly Supreme judges) for their knowledge of the law. That's what they're busy destroying right now ... faith in morality and just laws; knowledge of or trust in the laws; and trust in the government and trust in each other. They must destroy this, to make our people want a one-world government under the UN, instead of this nation. This is part of Rothschild's 25-point plan (given to him by Satan), and the Masons & Illuminati have infiltrated everywhere and are carrying it out.

142196 Wake up Judges. You are complicit with the cops with your unjustified respect of LEO's and their hero status, believing them to be honest, credible professionals.

Now you can see first hand what the average citizen has to deal with on a daily basis. I live in muted fear of law enforcement because they have the power and will use it often without discretion. They abuse their power and the position of trusted witnesses and routinely falsify reports, lie and concoct evidence to first protect themselves, second, protect their comrades, and finally to protect their case.

Wake up and defend the law that you swore to uphold, the constitutions you pledged to protect, and show mercy and justice to the CITIZENS you judge, rather than turning a blind eye to the robbers of freedom.

317 I would imagine this is a pretty big story around the country in terms of other Judges and law enforcement at the state & Federal level. I would be very interested in seeing if future cases start going against police officers that citizens file against them. I would think and I might be wrong, that other judges frown upon what is happening to one of their own, kinda like how police officers stand by their own. If the entire story is factual that was posted and nothing critical was missing, then this is quite disturbing. I'm not sure how people that are involved in this stuff can go home at night and look at their kids like their some good daddy or mommy. Someday though their own families will find out somehow and I would love to see their expression when their own kids say kiss my ass now get the hell out of my life. I'm starting to think many people are falling victim of being Drugged in a way that it effects their minds, ya that sounds far fetched, but the way people have been acting the past few years is very unusual and again disturbing.

24214 That judge deserved to get karate chopped. I hope the cops get off scot free. He didn't care when other citizens rights were violated, but then is all up in arms when he is on the receiving end of sweet justice. Cry me a river.
