By Daily Mail. A woke Las Vegas judge is facing calls from a police union to resign after brazenly telling a criminal in her courtroom she didn’t know if she would ‘walk away alive’ from cops.
Judge Erika Ballou told a defendant that he should have walked away from officers, after being arrested for committing battery against an officer in Nevada while on probation.
Footage of the exchange shared by KLAS shows Judge Ballou, who is black, saying: ‘You’re the one making the decisions not to walk away from cops. You’re a black man in America.
‘You know you don’t want to be nowhere where cops are. Listen to me.
‘You know you don’t want to be nowhere where cops are cause I know I don’t, and I’m a middle-aged, middle-class black woman. (Read more from “Woke Judge Faces Calls to Quit for Telling Criminal: ‘I Don’t Want to Be Where the Cops Are Because I Don’t Know if I’m Going to Walk Away Alive’” HERE)
American Judge Kidnapped and Held for $36,000 Ransom After Hiring Two Prostitutes While Vacationing in Rio de Janeiro: Four Suspects Are in Custody, Including Two Men Who Posed as a Police Officer
By Daily Mail. An American judge vacationing in Rio de Janeiro hired two prostitutes before he was kidnapped and held for ransom by two men who were posing as police officers.
The magistrate, whose name has not been released by Brazilian authorities, arrived in the tourist hot spot July 3, according to police reports.
The judge said he had known the two women, identified as Shayna Monteiro and Beatriz Freitas, from his previous trips to Rio de Janeiro. He reached out to the women and invited them Monday to an apartment he rented out in the Copacabana sector.
Monteiro and Freitas left the apartment around 11:30 am but returned an hour later, accompanied by Erivaldo da Silva and Alef dos Santos, who followed them into the judge’s pad and identified themselves as members of the Civil Police force.
Once inside the apartment, da Silva and dos Santos claimed that the women were underage and that he was being placed under arrest.
