Ex-NYPD Detective: Blame Liberal Courts for Bronx Cop Killing

Newsmax TV's "Newsmax Now"

A liberal justice system that frees career criminals way too early is to blame for the sickening execution of a New York City police officer early Wednesday, Harry Houck, a former NYPD detective and retired U.S. Marine, told Newsmax TV.

"It's definitely a tragedy that could have been prevented," Houck told "Newsmax Now" host Bill Tucker. "This guy was a career criminal, his record goes back to 2000 that we know of, and I'm sure it goes back even further than that.

"Here's a man who committed a robbery — a robbery, forcible taking with a gun. He did seven years, and it should have been 20. Not to mention that fact that, I think it was back in 2001, he and some other people beat a police officer to a pulp, and he had brass knuckles.

"Then you've got the drug arrests, and then who knows what this guy has done since he got out of jail because, apparently, it doesn't look like to me that he became a better citizen."

In the unprovoked attack, a gunman identified as Alexander Bonds, 34, fatally shot police officer Miosotis Familia, 48, as she sat in a mobile command truck with her partner in the Bronx.

Officers chased the assailant on foot for a block before he drew a revolver and was shot and killed. Bonds was on parole for robbery in Syracuse, New York.

The New York Times reported in a video Bonds posted on Facebook last year, he angrily slammed corrections officers and police officers, stating: "I'm not playing, Mr. Officer. I don't care about 100 police watching this . . . I wasn't a bitch in jail, and I'm not going to be a bitch in these streets."

"So here's a man who was very, very angry at the system and most likely because he was a thug and he went to jail. He wasn't too happy about that, and he must have been listening to 'Black Lives Matter' and their lying narrative out there about police officers," said Houck, a CNN law enforcement analyst.

"And somehow something went off in his head, and he went and he committed this horrible crime . . . This is a violent criminal who should have been in jail.

"This liberal justice system that we have has got to learn that violent criminals need to be incarcerated for long periods of time, and that's how they could have stopped this from happening. But they keep on releasing these people, and we consistently see it time and time again when somebody commits a horrible crime like that, you look at their record and they should have been in jail."

Familia is the eighth New York City police officer shot and killed in the line of duty over the past five years.
