A judge has refused to release the video that allegedly shows State Senator Hiram Monserrate yanking girlfriend Karla Giraldo "viciously and violently" around his Queens home. The request to release the video was made by the Daily News, but the judge thinks that the powerful images would taint potential jurors. He said, "The defendant will not get a fair trial. It has the great potential for prejudice. A picture is indeed worth a thousand words...it causes the blood to boil." He also told Monserrate's lawyer, "You and your client have to make your peace with this exhibit. You'll have to cope with it...It's inevitable that it's going to come out."
