Break out the violin for poor Hiram

From the Daily News:

After a routine court appearance, a lawyer for the embattled Queens pol accused prosecutors of lying to snag a high-profile perp.

"If Mr. Monserrate wasn't an elected official, this case would have been squashed," lawyer Irving Seidman complained.

Monserrate is accused of slashing girlfriend Karla Giraldo in the face with a broken drinking glass during a December fight in his apartment.

Seidman accused veteran prosecutor Scott Kessler of fabricating the claim that Giraldo had admitted she was struck by Monserrate.

"What [Kessler] said in court was fictional," Seidman said outside of court.

Seidman also asked that the order of protection against Monserrate be lifted, but Judge William Harrington refused to hear any arguments.


But this is the best, from The Capitol:

For Monserrate, the outpouring of vitriol directed at him after he was arrested—The Daily News took to calling him “Monster-rat”—was in the same vein as the negative response he received for standing up for the residents of Willets Point, or taking on the owners of the New York Mets.

Standing up for the people of Willets Point? Are you freaking kidding me? He stabbed them in the back and threw them under the bus! And since the whole debacle is being orchestrated by the Mets, how exactly did he stand up to them?

I think they meant to say he stood up on their backs and danced a tango on their prostrate bodies or was it Salsa?

His lawyer is a joke.20 stitches to the womans face and he says it should have been squashed!?!?!?!? Actually this crime was downgraded to assault 2.He should have been charged with Assault 1! But then it would be too hard to let him plea to a misdeanor,which will happen because the powers that be in Albany Want to keep that Dem seat in the Senate!!!!!!!!

These articles and the remarks made here just confirm that Queens politians are a bunch of double dealing, no good thiefs. Sickening.

Isnt their one in the bunch who at least cares about Queens as a borough?

Anyone else would have been locked up with the key thrown away. No justice for the people, especially the niave victim whom continues under this man's deadly spell.

A public danger.

Taxpayer said...

An honest cop or honest Assistant DA (whoops! Brown controls their honesty and let the rapist of with the claim that the grandmother forced herself on him)...

Anyway, someone with honesty should be looking for the hired or volunteer thugs who are threatening Monster Rat's domestic violence victim.

"...especially the niave victim whom continues under this man's deadly spell."

Exactly. What is with these women? Getting her face slashed wasn't enough? Does she think things will get better? Maybe, like most abusers, he convinced her it was her fault. The worst thing she could do is stand by him. Sends the wrong message to girls everywhere. Even worse - Rihanna has been rumored to have gotten back together with her abusive boyfriend who turned her face into a punching bag a few weeks ago.
Stupid, stupid women.

No, she's very practical, not naive. This is a very powerful, very dangerous man who can easily have her "disappeared." Its like riding a tiger, you can climb aboard, but you can never climb off.

hiram resign now said...

Don't you feel great when you see the press have this on the front page?

Chonicle should go out of business. Don't advertise.

Diana Reyna was the first Latina elected to boroughwide office in Queens, so right off the bat you know this reporter is an idiot.

italian girl said...

"disappeared"?

He's been exposed as an abuser. What could he possibly do to her that wouldn't point him out as the obvious culprit?
I think she's wasting an opportunity here.
Hang him out to dry Karla. Don't take any hush money and don't believe he won't do it again.

ANOTHER Joe Crowley Best. I heard
People who attended Crooning Crowleys Christmas Party, saw Monster Rat just Hours before he slashed her face. Seems the booze at Joes parties always cause Problems. I Hear the threat of Deportation to her family members is being used to seal the deal.
Shame on all, including the Crooner!

back in black said...

of course they are putting pressure on her thats what they always do. same as willets point you don't go along with what they want they come down and shut you down - give tickets -harras you ect and these people after 30 years come around and only for harrasment ? we elected them so shame on us, come november lets see if the people still stand for all the developers money being as what shapes our goverment. vote them all out --tony a for mayor

italian girl said...

The punishment should fit the crime. He should have his face cut up with some broken glass to remind anyone voting for him of what he's done. Kind of like a scarlet letter.
Speaking of abusing women and getting away with it. Recently I think it was Iran, a woman who had been blinded and disfigured from an acid attack by a man she didn't want to marry has been handed the sentence of acid in his eyes. YEAH!!! This should send a message, especially in that horrendous culture that women are not objects, property or things that can just be abused or disposed of.

remember the clueless seniors and the gullible - it seems that just about anyone who goes into politics is a political foamer - dont have the foggiest notion on their positions, but if a newspaper or pol trumpets it well by golly they are for it!

Things have to fall apart badly for any change so hope for the worst in the downturn - no gain without pain.

Look at Phony Tony Como in Middle Village and his gang of jerks. His Consilgere Serf. His Chief of staff infection James. Jake the snake. O'connor. The cast of Characters goes on.

Phony Tony Como cares only about himself and his friends and not anyone else.

Phony Tony Como is bad for our neighborhood, period.

How ironic! If you click on another article just to the right of the one in the Daily News about Monster-Rat, you get this:

"It makes perfect sense that she would go back to him," said Madeline Garcia Bigelow, director of the domestic violence project at Manhattan's Urban Justice Center.

"The reality is that when you're in an intimate relationship with anyone you tend to give people chances."

"I think it sends a really negative message that it's okay to remain in an abusive relationship and just to accept an apology and move on," said Manhattan psychologist Dr. Jane Greer.


And who is this article discussing? Rihanna and Chris Brown.

Same sh*t, different income bracket!

Wade Nichols said...

Hey Crappy!

I like that picture of Monster-Rat with "Girl Cutter" on it.

I think the picture of Monster-Rat in the Capital article could be Photo-Shopped to include a pair of "bloody gloves", a la O.J. Simpson. Just a suggestion to any of the creative people out there....

“I have a serious commitment to promoting a social justice agenda and a progressive agenda,” he said. “I understand that you’re going to get beat up publicly at times. Your positions are going to get beat up. I understand if you slip on a banana peel, you’ll be on page one—even though it was an accident.”

Your girlfried gets beat up too.

This is repulsive. NOW should demand an apology to Capital for printing this crap.

Snake Plissskin said...

Looks like he is explaining why he is still with his girlfriend in Capital.

Big boobies makes a difference, eh Wade?

The never ending saga continues... doesn't it, Deuce? Well, there's no point trying to protest your obsession with the former, now twice-removed Council member.

Hiram's an arrogant criminal who belongs in the slammer, not in the state capital. He's the classic wife-beating thug with no shame nor disregard for humanity. There's a cell waiting for him, and God willing, he'll find it soon.

Rip him a new one 'ol buddies!
