  1. Sooooo … can the FBI tear themselves away from persecuting President Trump long enough to look into this?

    Why is this more urgent than the murders of all those negro-people in New York and Chicago over the past couple of weekends?

    White (or White Hispanic) privilege?

    I guess some lives “matter” more than others.

  2. “This tragedy is our latest reminder that gun violence remains a crisis in our country and that our work to make every community safer isn’t done,” Murphy said.

    A targeted hit on a Judge known to sentence gang leaders is just “gun violence”. Murphy is evil.

  4. ” Among her most high profile cases was the financial fraud case involving “Real Housewives of New Jersey” reality TV stars Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe –

    Recently Salas has presided over a lawsuit brought by Deutsche Bank investors who claim the company allegedly failed to monitor “high-risk” customers including convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. ”

    Oh boy, here we go.

  5. New Jersey has insufficient gun laws!!?? NJ is practically a fascist police state.

    What NJ and the rest of the country has is not gun violence, it is black violence. 3% of the population, all young black males, commit 53% of all murders.

    Young black males did this.

  7. The reason we have so much gun violence is because judges let violent offenders off with time served to go do more mayhem and gin up gun crime stats.
    The judiciary is the main cause of this ask any cop in the cities.

  8. Gee whiz, it’s too bad they didn’t have some kind of instrument to defend themselves with? What would that be? Maybe the lawyer could have threatened the perp with legal action?

  9. You’d think they’d cut an Obama appointed judge some slack but I guess the elite within the ranks of pedophiles don’t want to be prosecuted.

    I can’t begin to imagine who’s pulling strings with this. Anybody?

  10. Did anyone bother to keep track of who got released from prison due to Covid?
    Seems like comparing that with the judge’s cases might be useful in narrowing the list of possible suspects.

  11. @Toenex, I never heard the term until MJA used it on another thread. Now that I’m enlightened I must say i hope you don’t feel obligated to add an avatar.
