Criminal Court Judge Laura Johnson Lets 18 Year Old Devon Coley Out of Jail without Bail After Posting Online Threats to Shoot Cops (Update: Judge Releases Travis Maye Without Bail After Punching Cop)
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?
Since when did NYC become a catch and release stream for criminal thugs? The same judge has now released another thug without bail after he had been arrested for punching a police officer. Maybe she would like to go for the hat trick after one of these punks kills another police officer.
She keeps turning ’em loose.
A day after freeing a gang member who posted an anti-cop death threat online, a Brooklyn judge ignored the admonishment of a court boss — and sprung a man who allegedly punched a police officer and threatened to kill his colleagues, The Post has learned.
Criminal Court Judge Laura Johnson blatantly disregarded an Office of Court Administration boss who said she “should be setting an example to the public that threatening or assaulting police officers isn’t an acceptable thing,” a courthouse source said.
The admonishment came in the wake of Saturday’s execution-style slayings of two NYPD cops as they sat in a patrol car in Brooklyn.
On Tuesday night, Johnson released Travis Maye, 26, without bail following his arrest in a violent melee with cops earlier that day.
According to court records, Maye took swings at cops at Flatbush Avenue and Prospect Place at around 1:35 a.m., socking one officer in the eye and sending him to the hospital.
Sarah Palin Blasts President Barack Obama for His “Stay-at-Home Moms” Comment … ” the President Needs to be Spanked”
WE WILL ASK AGAIN, WHAT PARTY IS TAKING PART IN THE WAR ON WOMEN?
Former Governor and Vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin blasted Barack Obama for insulting stay-at-home moms comment he made this past week. Obama told a crowd of female supporters that being a stay-at-home mother is “not a choice we want Americans to make.” Just how clueless could these women possibly be? But this is the kind of divisive crap we continue to get from Obama. Should we be surprised, he is nothing more than a community agitator. So let’s understand this, a woman has a right to abort a child, but not to make a choice of being a stay-at-home mom, REALLY?
Obama Declares Stay-at-Home Moms Aren’t Worth a Hill of Beans; Says It’s a Choice ‘We Don’t Want Americans to Make’
Well that just takes the cake. Sure, Obama’s latest shot across the bow in his own “War on Women” is easily deflected by women like my friends and me testifying to the most precious, irreplaceable seasons of our lives when we were BLESSED to be “stay-at-home moms” (though I don’t remember any of us actually “staying home” in those busiest times of our children’s lives), but Friday’s jab deserves something right back nonetheless. On behalf of former and current stay-at-homers, including my girlfriends who still get together to bake cookies for the bake sale (see photos in my kitchen above), and volunteer to coach kids ball teams, and man the church’s food bank, and entertain latchkey kids, and all that other obnoxiously “housewifey” stuff, the President needs to be spanked.
Barack, do you not know any stay-at-home moms? Are you and Michelle so disconnected from the real world that you think women will accept your intolerant view that we should not have a choice in how we wish to live our lives? You have a way of arrogantly demanding that we fall in line with your sad opinion of today’s American woman. It seems you’d shackle us by your snobbish shunning of one traditional lifestyle choice while taking advantage of power to manifest your liberal view by manipulating public opinion and resources to diminish moms who put career on hold to raise a family. You are really messed up. And you’re so 1960’s.
Yes, the 60’s are calling and they want their ardent yet narrow sexist confines back. See, you just set the women’s movement back a few decades, and I think it’s hilarious because for being the smartest man in the room, you ain’t too smart.
The the rest HERE.

Investigators said Malloy and Locklear got into an argument on March 11, which is the night she was last seen leaving her grandfather’s home in the Fox Meadow subdivision. They said the conversation turned violent and Malloy choked Locklear to death and stuffed a sock in her mouth.
Malloy and a friend, 18-year-old Dominic Lock, then allegedly tossed her body over a bridge on the Cumberland/Sampson County line. Locklear’s remains were found with cinder blocks with tied to her body.
Right now, the body, which was found April 3 by an off-duty deputy, has not been positively identified. However, based on conversations and Malloy’s confession, police said they know it’s her.

Sheriff Earl “Moose” Butler and Chief Joel Acciardo called an emergency press conference to announce Je’Michael Malloy’s arrest as well as confirm that a body recovered April 3 from the South River was Locklear’s.
Acciardo said Malloy, 17, killed the 15-year-old South View High School student the night of March 11. Earlier that night she left home after telling her grandfather she was walking to a friend’s house about a block away. That was the last time her family saw her.
Deputies arrested Malloy Tuesday evening. A second suspect, Dominic Lock, 18, was also arrested and charged with conspiracy in Locklear’s death.
Acciardo said the night of March 11 Locklear actually walked to meet Malloy just outside her neighborhood. He said investigators learned that Locklear and Malloy got into an argument that night. Malloy told investigators the argument turned violent and he choked Locklear to death and stuffed a sock in her mouth.
He said he and Lock then tied cinder blocks to her body and tossed her into the South River just south of Autryville. Malloy lives nearby on Highway 210. Law enforcement officers searched his home on Friday. They also searched Lock’s home near Deep Creek Road in Fayetteville on Friday.
