Once more, with Judge Timothy Feeley
C’mon down, yet again, Superior Court Judge Timothy “Touchy” Feeley.
If you want to understand how hopeless Massachusetts “justice” has become, there is no better place to begin than with the twisted, sick career of Touchy Feeley.
Last year, after a series of horrific rulings from the bench by Touchy on behalf of assorted perverts, illegal aliens, heroin dealers and future cop killers, a band of Republican legislators (and one lonely Democrat) futilely tried to impeach this wrinkly moonbat from the lily white town of Swampscott.
A year later, the two GOP legislators who spearheaded the effort are out of elective politics – both defeated last fall, one for reelection, the other in a bid for the US Senate.
And the dreadful Touchy Feeley now is back in the headlines this week with his same-old same-old m.o.:
“Judge lowers bail for Lawrence cop charged with child rape.”
How Touchy is it? A 49-year-old Lawrence cop is charged with raping a 13-year-old boy he picked up via a gay “dating” app – Grindr. He’s charged with two counts of aggravated rape and two counts of indecent a&b on a child under the age of 14 in a park last summer.
The Democrat district attorney of Essex County asked for $100,000 bail, another hack judge cut it to $75,000. Then the case goes before Touchy, and suddenly, the alleged perv police officer’s bail is cut to $10,000.
So what if the cop is a “mandated reporter” – that means he’s required under law to report exactly the crimes he’s accused of committing against the child. So what if he’s somehow “lost” at least two of the firearms registered in his name.
If you’re accused of a sex crime in Essex County, there is no better judge for you than Touchy Feeley. Here are some of the earlier headlines from his extinguished career:
“Alleged sex predator released after hearing… Judge releases Salem man charged in sexual abuse… Alleged Pervert’s Release Scares Boy… Judge further lowers bail in Salem rape case…. Bail for alleged flasher reduced.”
But it’s not just sex offenders. Touchy also has a soft spot for heroin dealers, especially if they’re not US citizens:
“Alleged heroin ringleader jumps bail… Man out on bail in drug case arrested for trafficking heroin.”
Check out his disheveled photo. Touchy looks like a guy you’d see snoozing on a park bench on the Common, wearing six layers of crusty clothing, waiting for that night’s hot and a cot at the Pine Street Inn. He reaches the mandatory retirement age of 70 next February, which should mean his reign of error is almost over.
But you can bet he’ll be back on “recall,” double-dipping with both his six-figure state pension and a per-diem for cutting loose more pervs and illegal heroin dealers in Essex County.
You might say 2018 was a career year for Touchy Feeley. He reduced the bail for a tattooed career criminal facing firearms charges to $5000, and just days later the bailed jailbird allegedly murdered a 61-year-old cop in Maine.
Then there was the Dominican heroin dealer, whose brother was already in prison for selling Class A controlled substances. He was arrested with 40 bags of heroin, not to mention cocaine. Touchy refused to give him a prison sentence.
Instead, he handed the Dominican merchant of death a suspended sentence, lest he be deported and separated from the anchor baby he fathered with his girlfriend – not his wife, his girlfriend, it goes without saying I suppose.
Here are the judge’s exact words in cutting loose the heroin dealer:
“Uh and um, I uh am uh also uh giving uh consideration to the fact that uh this was not a uh drug addict who was uh dealing to fund his him um uh addiction uh bu rather was a person who mad some uh terrible uh judgments and decisions but uh made them for um reasons that at least he thought uh were helpful to his uh family uh and that’s a little uh different than uh the usual uh defendant that presents before this court.”
In other words, the Dominican wasn’t an addict, so that made it okay. Of course, I’m guessing that if the Third World fiend had been hooked on his own product, that too would have made it okay, somehow. Because Touchy, from his privileged background, seems to have more than a touch of… white guilt.
In that case, the prosecutor begged the New York-born judge to show even a lick of common sense for once in his worthless career.
“I think it’s a dangerous view to take,” the prosecutor said, “that being someone who is not a US citizen is somehow mitigating when you’re talking about dealing a very dangerous substance… he was in the ongoing business of dealing heroin.”
Naturally, the libs can’t get enough of Touchy Feeley. He’s protecting their constituents, those they fervently need to “fundamentally transform” America.
When he was in that little jam last year with the legislature, the presiding justice of the Superior Court lauded him as someone who “has widespread respect for his scholarship, dedication, courage and compassion.”
He was, of course, nominated by Deval Patrick, who lauded the bust-out lawyer for his “humility and an understanding of the human condition that will ensure fair and thoughtful administration of justice.”
Especially if you’re a Dominican heroin dealer, future cop killer or accused child rapist.
In the halls of justice, the only justice is in the halls.
