IN LINE OF FIRE; PROSECUTOR'S TEST IN NEWARK SLAYS (lib protects illegal criminals)
NY POST ^ | August 13, 2007 | JEANE MacINTOSH

Posted on 08/13/2007 1:32:00 PM PDT by Liz

Essex County Prosecutor Paula Dow has for years drawn criticism - and infuriated police - with her unwritten rule not to issue arrest warrants, or even pursue cases that rely on a lone eyewitness. Court records show more than a dozen Newark murders in the past three years in which witnesses had ID'ed the killers but no charges weren brought by Dow's office. Dow's "policy" seemed about to rear its head in the wake of the triple schoolyard slayings

The victims' parents need to contact U.S. Dept of Justice---Civil Rights Division---Washington, DC.

The US Dept of Justice's SPECIAL LITIGATION SECTION investigates state and local law enforcement agencies alleged to engage in a pattern or practice of violating citizens' federal rights, and may bring civil lawsuits to remedy such abuses.

The federal criminal civil rights statutes provide for prosecutions of conspiracies to interfere with the citizenry's federally protected rights, and deprivation of rights under color of law.

Federal law makes it unlawful for State or local law enforcement officers to engage in a pattern or practice of conduct that deprives citizens of rights protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States.

Dow admitted there was an "issue" with Carranza's bail but said the "uproar" was "going to have to wait for another day."

LS,

Please do not post unfounded personal attacks or FR. You know the site is constantly watched by BOR and the MSM for just such tidbits.

I agree that she is a worthless waste when it comes to her job and should be removed, impeached, investigated and prosecuted under the law post in the OP but I do nor wish death on her nor do I know if she is a whore.

That really depends on how you look at the word. In fact the American Heritage Dictionary has this as one of the meanings

A person considered as having compromised principles for personal gain.

Sounds like she fits that meaning perfectly. Not that she really has any principles.

From another story in DelawareOnline: “Essex County, N.J., Prosecutor Paula Dow blamed the prevalence of guns” for these murders. I see no reason why these should not be prosecuted as race crimes. If we are going to have race crime laws on the books, and I am in no way endorsing that, surely this is the kind of situation in which they should be applied.

More stuff that garners unprintable response: “But Dow soon found herself facing a new round of criticism when it emerged that Carranza is an illegal immigrant who was freed - twice - on bail this year after HER OFFICE charged him first with assault and then the repeated rape of a 4-year-old girl.”

The liberal wet dream-——disestablishmentarianism——tearing down the foundaton of civilized society.

Disturbed liberals thrive on crime and chaos.

People like this Dow person need psychiatric care and some time weaving baskets in a padded cell.

Governor McGreevey Formally Nominates Paula Dow As Essex County Prosecutor

(TRENTON) - Governor James E. McGreevey today formally nominated Paula Tumayshu Dow, of Maplewood, as the Essex County Prosecutor. Ms. Dow has been serving as the Acting Essex County Prosecutor since October 1, 2003.

I have no doubt that Paula Dow is the best candidate to serve as the Essex County Prosecutor.”

“It is an honor to have been chosen by Governor McGreevey to as the next Essex County Prosecutor,” said Dow. “I look forward to continuing to fight for justice on behalf of the citizens of Essex County.”

Dow earned her B.A. from Franklin and Marshall College in 1977, and her J.D. from the University of Pennsylvania Law School in 1980. She has been admitted to the Bars of New Jersey, New York and Texas; United States Supreme Court; Second and Fifth Circuit Courts of Appeals; United States District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, District of New Jersey, and Northern and Southern Districts of Texas.

‘No Snitching’ Messages Pervade Justice System

(audio of Paula Dow on NPR 12 days ago)

Listen to this story...

Tell Me More, August 1, 2007 · Several cities around the country are coping with a wave of “no snitching” messages, leaving many witnesses afraid to testify in criminal court. A recent case in Newark, N.J., resulted in a perjury charge for a witness who claimed to have been intimidated on the stand. New Jersey prosecutor Paula Dow talks about how the street trend is impacting the criminal justice system.

Hey Liz...just wondering if you’ve been watching Greta VanSustern’s coverage of this case? She has been relentlessly digging for information and her show tonight was excellent.

Sure have, Kim........not only Greta, but comments made by Judge Napolitano and Jeannine Piro have also been forthright in castigating the incompetent justice system that let this killer/child molester free to walk the streets.

Greta’s best interview was last eve with the nitwit city councilman Ron Rice who could not even explain the legal system-—bad enough until Greta made a point of telling the viewer the imbecile was a lawyer.

The schools that conferred law degrees on Rice and Newark Prosecutor Paula Dow should have their credentials removed.

You say Dow and Rice took the bar exam?

Frankly, that is is hard to believe.
