Skip to comments.IN LINE OF FIRE; PROSECUTOR'S TEST IN NEWARK SLAYS (lib protects illegal criminals)
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 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.
Essex County Prosecutor Paula Dow
This airheaded nitwit oughta read her job description.
One can only wonder how this nincompoop got a law school to admit her and actually give give her a degree to practice law........her bar exam musta been a riot.
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.
Good thinking——don’t do that——we need you here.
A person considered as having compromised principles for personal gain.
Sounds like she fits that meaning perfectly. Not that she really has any principles.
This lady is perfectly qualified to be Hillary’s new Attorney General.
I agree, but you KNOW that is not the definition that will be applied by the MSM. ;)
“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.”
Now tell me again why citizens don’t need CCW laws for their own protection!
Geez, that person has some long fingers. She must be at least 7 foot tall....
And protecting the sorry backsides of illegals puts her at the top of Hil’s A-list. Meet your new USAG.
Her record as a defense attorney improved greatly once she became a prosecutor.
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.
Very obviously an EEOC hire. Good grief.
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.”
Acronym for Another Affirmative Action A(irhead). You may substitute another word at the end that rhymes with "mole."
Well for days everyone wanted to know “How could this happen?”, Where did the system fail?, Who is responsible?
...don’t worry folks, your looking at the next mayor of Newark,NJ.
My thinking precisely.
No doubt HOW she got the job-—sure wasn’t on her merits (such as they are).
The ruination of a nation! Step down prosecutor you are not doing your job protecting Americans in America!
Since only the victims were black, she may have a different viewpoint this time.
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.
“If I was what his name I might call her a nappa+++++++++!! But then I would get in trouble !!”
There. Now we both feel better.
Words fail me.
That this braindead individual is at the levers of L/E is nauseating.
O’Reilly will be in rare form tonite over this prosecutress IF HE IS TRULY THE FAIR & BALANCED MAN HE PURPORTS TO BE......
This will be O’Reillys sink-or-swim moment.
So we don't shoot their @sses off this planet.
No other reason.

‘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.
Faked her credentials and pumped her resume.
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.
