Judge's remarks show she often assumes guilt

I feel you Judge, to bad we are a hug a thug nation now and you will of course lose your seat because of a remark that wasn't as bad as what I would have said.

I have never seen a story about courts being too lenient on defendants and those defendants getting back on the street to commit crimes again. It happens all the time but the public either doesn't know or doesn't care. Stories like this give the false impression the courts are tough on defendants. Anyone who believes that should show up in court and listen in on the plea bargaining discussions that happen every day.

Hmmmm...election in November....

This is a patently transparent, political hit-piece. Keep up the good work courier journal. The big publication and storage facility on Stober Avenue that used to be filled with your employees and your products now sitting empty with a "For Sale" sign should be a clue to how the people of this community feel about your products.

Here's an example of how the courts operate in Louisville. People who intentionally murder people in cold blood are allowed to walk the streets before people involved in accidental deaths.

July 7: Man charged with road rage murder gets out of jail on $50,000 bond.

July 15: Man who murders his landlord and tampers with evidence released on $25,000 bond.

August 12: Man charged with shooting someone in an attempted murder gets out of jail on $100,000 bond.

Earlier this week: 2 men charged with murdering a child and shooting the child's mother are held on $500,000 bond.

This morning: Woman who kills someone and is charged with murder due to being DUI is held until she posts a $500,000 cash bond

​Showing absolutely no remorse, a Brooklyn farebeater who ​shot a ​rookie ​cop ​who pulled him off a bus coldly answered, “F— it,” when ​a judge asked if he had anything to say before he sentenced him Wednesday.

Rashaun Robinson, 29,​ ​shot​ ​rookie cop James Li, 26,​ ​in each le​g ​after the cop​ ​grabbed​ ​him off a city bus in Flatbush on Feb​. 26. He​ pleaded guilty and ​was sentenced to 25 years behind bars.

Afterwards, Li coolly assessed Robinson’s performance.

“He’s dumb,” said the officer, who now walks with a cane. “I’m just glad that he’s getting 25 [years].”​​

Assistant District Attorney Lew Lieberman push​ed​ back at recent criticism of the NYPD before the sentencing.

“I just hope the public understands what these cops are doing to keep them safe,” he said in court.

Brooklyn Supreme Court Judge Alan Marrus echoed Lieberman’s words.

“This case represents a stark example of the extreme danger a police officer faces when enforcing the law,” Marrus said.

“It’s a case that demonstrates that the lawbreaker can be the one who overreacts in an [encounter] with the police.”

Robinson tried to withdraw his guilty plea before the sentencing — citing ineffective counsel and medication he’s been taking — but Marrus didn’t buy it.

“There is no reason for me to vacate your plea,” Marrus said.

After he was arrested in February, Robinson told detectives he carries a gun because cops think they run everything.

“They are the biggest gang in New York and are always messing with black people and he is sick of it,” Robinson told them, according to court papers.

He also told police he wanted to kill a cop that day, sources have said.

And when Robinson pleaded guilty last month and Marrus asked him whether he understood that he caused serious injury to Li, the heartless thug said quietly, “He can still walk.”
