Criminal Court Judge Laura Johnson Lets 18 Year Old Devon Coley Out of Jail without Bail After Posting Online Threats to Shoot Cops
So this is the New York City’s judicial response following two police officers being killed and the endless death threats, cowardice appeasement?
Brooklyn Criminal Court Judge Laura Johnson let 18 year old Devon Coley waltz free without a care in the world after he was arrested for making terrorist threats. The judge ignored prosecutors requests to keep Coley behind bars as she let the thug go free without bail. UNBELIEVABLE. Devon Coley posted online threats to gun down cops just hours after the shooting deaths of NYPD officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu. Coley is believed to be a member of the of the ATC/180HII Crew gang and is awaiting trial in two unrelated cases involving assault and gun possession.
The judge conceded that the posts were “stupid” and an “incredible inflammatory thing to do right now,” but added, “I think that for me to set bail because of the current climate — it would be a misuse of bail.”
WHAT!!! I GUESS THIS IS WHAT JUSTICE IS SUPPOSED TO LIKE LIKE IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY WHEN A THUG COMMITS A CRIME AGAINST THE POLICE?
Coley posted on Facebook a disturbing image of a gunman blasting away at a patrol car,
with the phrase “73Nextt” — a reference to the 73rd Precinct, which covers his Brownsville neighborhood.
A Brooklyn judge cut loose a gang member who had posted online threats to gun down cops in the hours after two NYPD officers were executed in their patrol car — ignoring prosecutors’ pleas to keep him behind bars, The Post has learned.
Criminal Court Judge Laura Johnson let Devon Coley, 18, waltz free without bail despite the fact that he faces seven years behind bars on charges he made a terroristic threat — complete with an image of a killer shooting cops in their car — and is awaiting trial in two unrelated cases involving assault and gun possession.
Johnson’s stunning no-bail decision came just two days after Saturday’s broad-daylight slayings of Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu by a gunman bent on avenging the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown at the hands of police.
At the punks arraignment Monday night, Coley’s court-appointed lawyer painted him as a mere “knucklehead” who didn’t intend to make good on his threat. Forget the fact that the thug is a gang member and waiting trial in two unrelated cases involving assault and gun possession. Yeah right, he is just misunderstood. What the hell has infested the power structure in NYC? Between the Mayor and the judiciary, insane liberal logic appears to appease criminals and attach police authority. Dennis Quirk, head of the state court officers union, said that “She should resign from the bench,” and she is “not fit to be a judge.” Ya think?
So sad and heartbreaking …

84 Year Old Bill Hogencamp of Phenix, AL Credits Stray Dog ‘Mahjong’ with Curing Him of Incurable Cancer at Christmas
A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE … MAN’S BEST FRIEND CREDITED WITH CURING CANCER,
84 year old Bill Hogencamp of Phenix, Alabama was diagnosed with incurable cancer of the gall bladder, liver, colon and the lining of his abdomen last May. His doctors told him that he would never see Christmas, December 25, 2014. Mr. Hogencamp had accepted his fate as be believed he had led a full life. However, Bill Hogencamp and his wife, Kathy, made the decision to still try and fight the cancer as well. In October he had surgery to remove three large tumors. Following the surgery is when the miracle began. After the surgery, his wife went to pick up her husband from a rehabilitation center, she noticed a dog dangerously wandering down the road. the dog walked past several cars, before it came up to hers and put his paws up on her door. She opened up the door and took in the stray pup. Initially they were not going to keep the dog; however, after not being able to locate its owner, they became attached to the little Maltese. They named him Mahjong. The dog fell in love with Bill Hogencamp and rarely left his side. The two became inseparable. Hogencamp underwent chemotherapy. Just before the holiday he received some miraculous news, Tests showed that Hogencamp was now cancer free.

“I hadn’t had a dog in twenty years and I had no desire to have a dog,” he said. “I kept saying we need to find his owner.”
Despite an extensive search and nearly a dozen false leads, the Hogencamp’s were never able to track down the dog’s owner. They learned from a vet they visited during their search that he was a Maltese, probably around 6 years old, fixed but not chipped.
Besides, the dog very quickly won Hogencamp over. They soon became inseparable.
Whenever Hogencamp sat down, the dog — who they named Mahjong after Kathy’s favorite card game — would jump in his lap. Whenever Hogencamp napped, Mahjong would curl up next to him. When Hogencamp returned home after being out, Mahjong would hop onto his hind legs and dance with joy.
As he and his wife settled into life with a dog, Hogencamp underwent chemotherapy. Just before the holiday he received some miraculous news: Tests showed that he was now cancer free.
MIRACLE OR HAPPENSTANCE, YOU MAKE THE CALL, BUT DON’T FORGET THAT DOG IS GOD SPELLED BACKWARDS.
Hogencamp’s doctors were at a loss for words to explain his miraculous medical turn of events of now being cancer free. However, the Hogencamp’s believe that little Mahjong has played a huge part in Bill Hogencamp’s remarkable and miraculous recovery.
The doctors are at a loss to explain this amazing turn of events, Hogencamp’s wife said. But she said the family believes that Mahjong has played a huge part in her husband’s recovery.
“The dog seemed to know right away that Bill was sick and it was his job to take care of him — and Bill knew it was his job to take care of the dog,” she said.
Hogencamp agreed. He said their relationship gave both him and the dog a sense of purpose. Although he knows he owes much of his cure to great medical care and a lot of luck, he said that he is convinced the little white dog was sent to him to help him get better.

Male Passenger Thrown Off American Airlines Plane After PC Scrooge Flippied Out After Airline Staff Says ‘Merry Christmas’
MAYBE THE NEXT TIME YOU FLY, YOU WILL CONSIDER TAKING AMERICAN AIRLINES, I KNOW I WILL …
A male passenger was tossed off an American Airlines plane at La Guardia Airport in New York on Tuesday after he flipped out and took offense to being wished a Merry Christmas by airline staff. The idiot went mental when he was greeted not once, but twice by American Airline personnel with a “Merry Christmas.” Instead of just smiling and accepting the greetings, the passenger had to spew his PC bullsh*t and then went on a rant that not everyone celebrates Christmas and lectured them that they should not say it. This fool would not stop and was in turn thrown off the plane. Good for the folks at American Airlines. As the Grinch was escorted off the plane, the other passengers cheered and applauded. Hell, had I been on the plane I would have led the others on board in a rendition of “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” serenading the jerk off the plane.
A passenger was tossed off a plane at La Guardia Airport on Tuesday after flipping out — because airline workers wished him a merry Christmas.
The man was waiting to board American Airlines Flight 1140 to Dallas when a cheerful gate agent began welcoming everyone with the Yuletide greeting while checking boarding passes.
The grumpy passenger, who appeared to be traveling alone, barked at the woman, “You shouldn’t say that because not everyone celebrates Christmas.”
Once on the plane, he was warmly greeted by a flight attendant who also wished him a “merry Christmas.” That was the last straw.
“Don’t say, ‘Merry Christmas!’?” the man raged before lecturing the attendants and the pilot about their faux pas.
He was escorted off the plane as other fliers burst into cheers and applause.
I am all for freedom of speech, but some time people just need to STFU. No body cares that one person on a plane full of people, traveling on the day before Christmas, gets offended by being wished a Merry Christmas. At some point the 99.9% of people do not need to have their lives impacted by the opinions of one idiot. Congratulations to American Airlines for doing the right thing.
THE GIFT OF GIVING …
Across the United States, secret Santa’s and layaway Angles have warmed the hearts of many with their gift of giving during the Christmas season. From Massachusetts to Florida, from Pennsylvania to California and all places in this great land, Christmas is a time of giving in honor of our most precious gift of all. To be honest, I did not even know there was a charitable organization called Pay Away the Layaway. org that accepts donations to do just that. However, I think like other individuals, I would rather personally go to the store myself and do it. The thanks from those who benefited from these kind gifts is so special. Especially during the current times that so many are experiencing tough times, even though we have those in power telling us that the economy is good. As one of the mother’s who received the layaway gift said, “when you live week to week, its hard”. Yes it is and that makes what these Layaway angels do very special.
Under layaway, customers purchase items, but the store holds onto the physical merchandise as they pay it off in bits over a few weeks. For those with uncertain cash flows and limited access to credit, it’s a structured way to save up for the holidays. But even this system can be a stretch too far to make those final payments, coming due at many stores at the end of this week.
Unpaid, those gifts risk going back on the shelves instead of under the tree — unless a miracle happens. Enter the “Layaway Santa.”
Brockton, Mass ‘Layaway angel’ pays off thousands for families to put presents under their tree for their children.
The Brockton Enterprise reported that the unidentified man went to the customer service desk about noon Monday with $3,000 in cash and handed it over to pay off the layaway bills of other customers, said Jim Doucette, loss prevention lead detective at Kmart at 2001 Main St.
“He had $3,000 and he wanted to apply the money to delinquent layaways that would otherwise be cancelled for nonpayment,” Doucette said. “He specifically requested that we apply them to layaways containing a lot of toys, basically Christmas gifts.”
In acts of holiday generosity, anonymous benefactors around the country have been going to retailers and paying off the balances for customers who had items on layaway.
At a Walmart in Mechanicsburg, one man recently paid $50,000 to retire the layaway balances for 100 customers, and in Lancaster County, “layaway angels” have shown up at Kmart, Walmart and Toys R Us stores.
“Layaway” angels have descended in Panama City. It’s not a K-Mart initiative, but a Christmas tradition born out of kindness.
K-Mart assistant manager Larry Riley says this has been going on for a few years, but this year, people have been more generous than ever before, paying off layaways as high as $5,000.
As families in north Texas cross off their own Christmas lists, so called “layaway angels” are helping put gifts under the Christmas tree for strangers.
“It’s passing it on,” says Jim Butcher, the president of Eagle Land Services Inc.
For a third year in a row, Butcher has made the trip to a Toys R Us in Hurst and paid the layaway tabs for dozens of families.
Butcher says growing up, he personally experienced this kind of generosity from his community.
Near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, an anonymous donor, who goes by the pseudonym Santa B, wrote out a check for $50,000 to pay the remaining balances on layaways for families in need at one Walmart store there.
It’s so common that the layaway registers at Walmart actually have a “Good Samaritan” button. It basically allows associates to randomly select layaway customers buying only toys and helps facilitate acts of kindness.
Karlisa Ducan always told her three children that God allows Santa Claus to manifest in limitless forms, giving her 4-year-old, 8-year-old and 14-year-old a reason to believe.
On Wednesday, Ducan thanked God aloud as she hugged the four Santas standing near the Kmart layaway counter, who she said made Christmas a bit brighter by paying off her $500 debt to the store.
“Santa is involved in everything,” said Ducan, a 34-year-old mother from Warren. “Each Christmas is big, but this one will be the most blessed. This is the best feeling in the world.”
Vennie Bowden remembers plenty of layaway Christmases – those holidays when gifts were chosen early and then painstakingly paid off in the weeks leading up to the big day.
“I was raised penny to penny,” Bowden said.
So, layaway was an obvious choice for Bowden when she was looking for a way to help out during the holidays.
After launching a successful business – Arrow Fire Support Services – this year with her husband David, Bowden said, “I’ve been very blessed.”
Just check out these five amazing stories of layaway generosity:
1. Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania: An anonymous man put over 100 customers in the holiday spirit Monday, spending $50,000 at a Walmart on toys and electronics they had on reserve. The man did not reveal his real name, telling the store to just call him Santa B. “We’ve had layaway angels come but the extent was $5,000. This is much higher,” store manager Steve Myers told ABC News, adding that it was “pretty cool” that the guy chose that store out of the thousands of Walmarts.
2. Lake City, Florida: The Walmart in Pennsylvania was just one of four stores that were visited by Layaway angels Monday. An anonymous patron visiting the Lake City Walmart Supercenter also did his part to share holiday cheer, paying over $63,000 and closing at least 300 accounts for customers. “It was an outstanding thing,” store manager Gary Taylor told ABC News. “It’s good to know there are still some good Samaritans in the world.” A third patron cashed in a $51,000 check on all layaway accounts in Chiefland, Florida. It is unknown if the two patrons are the same person. The fourth store was in Kansas City, Missouri and received $10,000 on layaway items, according to a Walmart spokesperson.
3. Auburn, Massachusetts: Most layaway angels go unnamed, choosing to remain anonymous. But Cathy O’Grady is one who became big talk Dec. 12 when she walked into a Toys R Us in Auburn and paid $19,600 in layaway items, having spent $2,000 earlier that day at a Toys R Us in Framingham. O’Grady is the owner of Sofia’s Angels, an organization that specializes in helping all people, especially those in need. She says her mother, who passed away from breast cancer 17 years ago and for whom the organization is named after, inspired her to be generous. “She was always a giver, and I wasn’t sure how I was going to carry on her legacy and her memory,” O’Grady told ABC News. “It took me long enough to figure out what I wanted to do.”
4. Johnson City, Tennessee: Toys R Us, like Walmart, is one of the most frequent stores that layaway angels visited. One store in Johnson City recently had one who covered 52 layaway counts, racking up $5,000 in total, according to one benefactor Monte Riffey, who had about $900 in layaway at the Toys R Us. “It was very heart-warming,” she told ABC News. “Of course, I was very shocked that someone would do that for someone they didn’t even know. I was very shocked and appreciative.”
5. Charleston, West Virginia: Most layaway angels make their good gestures anonymously but we won’t hold that against Jed Smith, who spent over $1,000 on layaway items for people as they lined up at the register in a local Kmart, according to CBS-affiliate, WPEC CBS 12. “I’m Santa Claus today,” he said to one shopper, Leann Heater, in a quote published by WPEC CBS 12. “I’m going to cover this for you.” Smith did not return calls to ABC News for comment.
