Another police officer has been killed by a felon who should’ve been in jail but wasn’t because a lenient judge…..
Authorities in Maine launched a dragnet Wednesday after a man shot and killed a sheriff’s deputy, stole his cruiser and then robbed a convenience store, officials said. Somerset County Sheriff Dale Lancaster said Corporal Eugene Cole was killed around 1:45 a.m. on U.S. Route 2 in Norridgewock, located about 30 miles north of the state capital of Augusta. Cole was one of two cops shot dead nationwide, with a Dallas police officer succumbing to his wounds Wednesday morning after being injured the day before.
Authorities said the suspect, 29-year-old John Williams, stole Cole’s police cruiser after the shooting and drove it to a Cumberland Farms store, a 24-hour gas and convenience store, and robbed it. Lancaster did not not disclose any details about what happened before the deputy was shot, saying that authorities would release further details by Wednesday afternoon. After fleeing the store, Williams abandoned the vehicle, which was found around 5 a.m., officials said. It is not known if Williams is in another vehicle or on foot.

Just one month ago this happened:
State troopers arrested a man from Maine for having a gun without a license, after they came upon his stranded vehicle on the side of Interstate 495.
John Williams, 29, of 16 Jones St., Madison, Maine, was charged with possession/carrying a firearm, improper storage of a firearm, possession of ammunition without an FID card, possession of a large capacity feeding device, negligent operation of a motor vehicle and marked lanes violation, state police said. He was ordered held on $7,500 cash bail.
Williams was arraigned on the charges on Thursday in Haverhill District Court, where in addition to setting bail, Judge Michael Patten issued him a 90-day warning, meaning if he is charged with another offense while his case is pending, he could be ordered held for up to 90 days without bail.
Police searched the vehicle’s trunk, and found, in plain view, a loaded, 9mm Smith and Wesson magazine capable of holding 16 rounds, and loaded with 10 rounds. Police also found a partly open pouch containing a 9mm Smith and Wesson model SD9VE handgun with the slide portion separated from the frame, as well as an additional loaded 9mm magazine capable of holding 16 rounds, and containing 10 rounds. An additional round was located inside the pouch.
And Judge Michael Patten gave him a “90 day warning,” and was released on only $7,500 bail. This was 30 days ago. Obviously that “warning” meant absolutely nothing to this cold blooded criminal.
It’s just maddening on so many levels. First of all, this state continuously goes after places like The Gun Parlor, which is committing no crimes and sells a completely legal set of products that are guaranteed by the Second Amendment. But yet people who violate our gun laws get NOTHING!! What’s the point of gun laws if the courts aren’t going to enforce them? If you get caught with an illegal loaded gun, it should be automatic 10 years in prison, no questions asked. That’s what a state that was actually SERIOUS about gun laws and preventing violence would do. Not make it harder for law abiding citizens to purchase guns.
Secondly, Judge Michael Patten is the reason Officer Eugene Cole is deceased and his killer is on the run. If he kills anyone else in a desperate attempt to remain free that blood will be on Judge Patten’s hands as well. What these judges are doing is criminal. At what point do we as a society actually do something to stop this? How many cops have to be killed by career criminal shitbags before judges start losing their job? How bout we start charging them with criminal negligence? If you leave your loaded gun sitting on your coffee table and your child uses it to kill themselves or someone else, you can be charged. But yet judges, who knowingly let the maggots go free time and time again are NEVER held responsible for what happens next?
Judge Patten made $178,000 last year, paid for by the taxpayers. If you make that much money you should be held to a higher standard. What has he done to earn that salary? Whatever happened to “with great power comes great responsibility?” Does that only apply to Spiderman?
Judge Patten was appointed by the Governor’s Council in October 2014, after being nominated to the bench by Governor Deval Patrick. He was previously an Essex County ADA who had prosecuted some serious criminals. You’d think that someone with experience prosecuting shitbags would carry over that philosophy once on the bench. But apparently turning into a judge completely changes who you are and what you stand for in this state.
Not Judge Patten’s first time being lenient with violent criminals who attack police officers:
A man who allegedly assaulted seven Revere Police officers, sending two to the hospital, and damaged a booking room metal detector was held on high bail at his arraignment today, Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley said. JOSEPH M. PARKER (D.O.B. 3/25/81), who claims addresses in Wakefield and Malden, was arraigned today on charges of assault and battery, assault and battery on a police officer, malicious destruction of property, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest for his alleged actions on Revere Beach Parkway and at Revere Police headquarters early this morning.
Assistant District Attorney Vincent J. DeMore recommended that he be held on $50,000 cash bail; Chelsea District Court Judge Michael Patten set bail at $25,000.
At about 12:40 this morning, prosecutors say, two Revere Police officers were working a detail on Revere Beach Parkway near Mill Street. One of them, a lieutenant, stopped traffic as construction workers removed traffic cones from the roadway. Parker allegedly stopped short in front of the lieutenant, rolled down his window, and said, “I know why you stopped me.” He then allegedly exited the vehicle, began shouting expletives, and struck the officer, knocking the lieutenant to the ground and causing him to hit his head. He then allegedly began to move toward the second officer.
Seven freaking cops. The asshole assaulted SEVEN FREAKING COPS. And he walks on $25,000 cash bail, because obviously someone like this isn’t a danger to society.
