Mayor Bloomberg yesterday blasted the appeals judges who threw out the case against a 14-year-old punk nabbed with a loaded gun after a routine stop-and-frisk.
I cant imagine what was going through these three judges heads, Bloomberg fumed about Tuesdays shocking decision overturning the Family Court conviction of Darryl Craig whom cops caught carrying a .25-caliber pistol in The Bronxs Tremont section in February 2010.
He was stopped in a high-crime area in the wake of two recent gang shootings.
Heres a case, as far as we can tell, [of] a police officer doing everything by the book trying to keep you and your kids safe, Bloomberg said. They saw the kid put something in his pocket. It looked suspicious. They stopped him. It was a loaded gun.
I dont know what youre supposed to do other than that just send the kid, give em a flower and say go out and kill somebody? the mayor sarcastically added.
The Post yesterday revealed that just a month after Craig was freed on probation from Family Court in April 2010, he allegedly got another gun and nearly shot a Queens man to death.
He was charged with attempted murder but again treated as a youthful offender.
Craig got himself another gun, Bloomberg noted. He shot somebody twice and he was about to blow the guy away with a fatal bullet and somebody screamed and he ran away.
These judges have just got to understand the public at some point is not going to take this anymore.

your friend and compadre
get punks with guns off the streets and crime goes down...
crime goes down and you lose the reason for your political agenda.
can’t have that, now can we?
so put the punk back out on the street and let him shoot a couple of people.
I don’t see what the problem is. I wouldn’t walk through that neighborhood without a gun and neither would the cops, the judges or the mayor. The punk is probably someone that the world would be better off without but even scum should have the right to defend himself.
Even punks should be protected by the 4th Amendment to the US Constitution.
Well, no 14 year old has the right to a C&C anywhere AFAIK.
I think you have to be an adult. :)
If the screamer had been armed, it would have put an end to it real quick.
I don't know that this, by itself, constitutes sufficient facts to create a suspicion that criminal activity may be afoot. (which is the standard for a stop and frisk)

Bloomie is reaping what he has sowed in NYC——STUPIDITY.
Letting cops decided what is suspicious isn’t a good idea. JBTs will decided that all criminals beath,therefore anyone breathing is suspicious.
But...but...but Mayor, everybody KNOWS that stop & frisk is RAAACISSST!
Yeah, Mikey play stupid games win stupid prizes.
Well, how did these judges get to be judges? Whether directly elected to Office or appointed by elected officials, the people voted for these judges.
They have only themselves to blame. Don’t like the judges you get, then vote new people and parties into office. Otherwise, just shut your yaps...
