Judge tosses 2 of Hiram's charges

From the Queens Courier:

Justice William Erlbaum dismissed counts three and five – assault in the second degree and assault in the third degree – in State Senator Hiram Monserrate’s trial, but left the top charge.

The bombshell developments took place on Tuesday, October 6, near the end of the seventh day of Monserrate’s trial, which saw the prosecution rest its case and the defense call its first witness.

Monserrate Defense Attorney Joseph Tacopina argued that Erlbaum should dismiss all six charges against his client because the prosecution failed to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt.

See -- the fix is in. By the end of the trial all the charges will be tossed. What a waste of taxpayer money. You knew from the beginning that he was going to walk. What a farce!

The destruction/downfall of Queens can be highly attributed to the white flight of neighborhoods like Flushing, Corona, College Point, Elmhurst, Bayside most places in North, North Central, North East and anywhere along the 7 line.

Blame the immigrants, but blame the cock sucking so called Americans who sold us out.

Monserrate will not serve one minute jail time.

Now everyone knows just how strong the Queens County politicians are. They say jump and the answer is how high. They say get MonsterRAT off and the judge says OKAY!!! What a shame.

Who is paying the legal fee? If there was even just 1 investigative reporter in this city,we might find out!

The charges that were dropped were actually contradictory to the more serious charges. Focus on the big things.

In Queens judges are bought and sold like hot dogs at a ball game.

The clubhouse already owns most of them.

My money's on Monster-rat walking!

And I'm giving 40 to 1 odds that he's convicted and does jail time.

Any takers?

Hey, NOW supports Bloomberg, and burkas, and says nothing when women dress like whores and goes to work.

The women's movement is dead.

As a cynical friend told me in response to the OJ case: "If you're rich, you can slaughter your bitch."

Monster rat was taking notes.

This elected official beats the shit out of his girlfriend and it looks like no one is going to do anything about it.

Here's my prediction...he doesn't get any jail time...AND...he gets re-elected.

Rat will walk down the courthouse steps with a grin.

Face it folks this is not a justace system nor an American government anymore.
Things don’t come and go in black and white, but stages, and degrees.

Our country is well on its way to total socialism under currupt overlords who sold their souls to satan for false power and fame and money.

Joe, I don't even think they rate Satan. Maybe one of his minor imps.

If the girl says it was an accident, then it was an accident. Surely we can better utilize our resources more effectively, like cleaning up Roosevelt Avenue from all the drugs and prostitutes. What a waste of Money going after someone who has no history of Domestic Violence. Its pretty Pathetic since the establishment cant knock out Monserratte in the Ballot box, they try to get him out on this crap. I hope he gets off and screws the establishment.
