Do you really think a decent and fair minded person is going to be allowed to remain in the judges position? The government needs people like Donald Leo to ensure they win cases.

In my opinion your handling in the OCCUPY case involving Cecily McMillan borders on misconduct. And it is my sincere hope that the Appellate Division investigates you.

Obviously this judge should not be living in a civilized society, but what about the City of New York's decision to prosecute; doesn't it bear some responsibility here?

This man should be removed from the bench. The Judge is supposed to be a "neutral detached magistrate." He is none of the three. He is super pro-prosecution, rubber stamping the DA's Office decisions; he makes personal comments about defendants and cases, rather than being detached from the proceeding; and, thus, he is no independent "magistrate" removed from the proceedings, listening carefully to both sides. Disgraceful.
