Now do you think they'll think twice about true ramifications of their State's typically pro-PoliceState rulings??
Judge Says He Was Struck by a Police Officer in Queens
Justice Thomas D. Raffaele said a police officer in Queens, enraged at a jeering crowd, hit him in the throat on Friday.

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.
Ain't Karma a biatch? Well, if he were a rabidly evil statist, but seems like he's a nice enough dude:
Still the mere fact that Judge Raffaele won't press charges even though the degenerate aberrant NYPD copthug basically tried to cut off his respiratory system by judo chopping his throat, only goes to underscore how brainwashed statist govt employees themselves truly are!
The Govt Statists really, truly are a bunch of sado-masochistic Stockholm Syndrome-d cultists.
They too, are victims of their own years of contribution to their own institutionalized mental prison walls.
Judge credits Army training for saving his life in fight with out-of-control cop
Justice Thomas Raffaele claims officer attacked him
Please note the following:
A nurse spoke up and told the officer to stop.
“I’m a nurse,” she said, according to the judge. “You’re injuring him. You have to stop that.”
But the officer kept kneeing the man and soon an angry crowd began gathering around them.
Raffaele said he called 911 — because he was also worried about the cops. He said he told the dispatcher the officer was kneeing the suspect and that this was riling up onlookers.
“There were a lot of people and only two officers, and I felt they needed help to control what was going on,” the judge said."
Note how his primary concern were the classic policestate brainwashed bozo's autonomic response: "officer safety." No no no, we can't have the enforcers of the Judge's dictates to ever become undermined now, can we?
He does seem like a 'nice' guy. Even so, Raffaele's primary 'concern' for the 'suspect' wasn't so much that the unnecessarily excessive force was being applied via kneeing with a Gestapo glee. It was because there were only two copthugs on the scene, and the act of gestapo techniques were "riling up" the
bystanders and witnesses we mere peons who should simply STFU and take it.
Talk about a classic case of a brainwashed statist bozo. Will he learn a lesson and reflect on just what kind of immoral, corrupt, toxic, ineffectual system he is helping to maintain, and sustain?
Sadly? Probably not.
Judge Raffaele is a classic example of just what is wrong with the current 'judicial' paradigm: when seemingly 'good' people do nothing, in the face of Evil.
From the above NYT article:
The administrative judge for civil matters for the State Supreme Court in Queens, Jeremy S. Weinstein, who oversees the court where Justice Raffaele sits, said he was surprised to learn of the encounter because of what he said was the judge’s personality.
“I think, universally felt, that he is one of the most soft-spoken, thoughtful, decent human beings around,” Justice Weinstein said. “I think his temperament is admired by certainly his colleagues in the bar and I believe the community that he served.”
Note to Govt statists: what does this incident illustrate?
Bad Sh*t happens to NICE, GOOD, INNOCENT citizens, on a DAILY basis, out here in the REAL world, ALL the TIME!
His fellow colleague Judge Weinstein's genuinely incredulous reaction upon hearing the news that such violent attack can just 'happen' to occur against an innocent man of 'good standing and moral character' like Raffaele, who has done absolutely nothing wrong, nor instigated any event, pretty much sums up how MOST IN govt, truly believe when bad things happen to everyday citizens at the hands of the Statist CopThugs: somehow we 'MUST be guilty' and brought it upon ourselves, and we probably 'deserved' it!
That's like blaming a rape victim for how she dressed on the day/night of the incident!
You have 'nice' people apologizing, defending, acquiescing, making BS self-denial/rationalizations for the fact that he was assaulted. Yet, like some traumatized rape victim or a 'he beats me 'cause he loves me' domestic violence victim, he will CHOOSE to remain loyal to that very system that he just now became a first hand victim of.
Case in point, again from the NYT article:
Asked whether he intended to sue, Justice Raffaele said, “At this point, no, I don’t.”
He added: “I do feel that it’s important for this person to be disciplined. I don’t know if he should be an officer or not — what he was doing was so violent.”
Like millions of other Americans who on a daily basis must endure, he too just became a victim of that PoliceState. Yet, he is still kissing its ass, as if it's his duty to. As if, it's a moral and ethically run system.
Lawd help us.
