After a court sentenced a man to 8-plus years in prison for torturing a woman over several days, another judge gave him bail.
But it didn’t last.
After the judge’s decision went viral, the NYPD sergeant took to Facebook to personally slam the decision.
“The madness has now reached the courthouse,” the sergeant posted. “Judge Eddie Sanna assigned to Brooklyn Criminal Court–he just got out of bond on the fugitive (Brazen rapist in Deptford c)–so this lunatic gets out, but the woman he abused has had to suffer for years. Is he insane? Is the DA (Brooklyn District Attorney) insane? Does the judicial system in this country not matter anymore? Is this a laughingstock?”
“What kind of country does this represent?”
The sergeant went on to ask, “If a defendant was accused of torturing a woman over 100 times, and he still got out of bond and left her state (sic) for years–how would you feel about him going back to work.”
“Doesn’t the U.S. stand for Justice?”
The U.S. Department of Justice has launched an investigation into the case.
“The United States Department of Justice is aware of (sic) events concerning a convicted criminal, and we are evaluating the matter,” the department said in a statement.
“Anyone convicted of violent acts against law enforcement must be punished to the fullest extent of the law.”
