|So it appears that you can steal $1 Million that could have gone to victims who are still suffering and not receiving treatment and walk away with $900,000 of it.
Typical of the way things have been handled all along since 9/11.
No rhyme or reason.
Some may say that it is justified as the defendant was convicted and is going to prison for two and a half years.
To that we say how many could have gotten treatment over the next two and a half years with $1 Million.
What does this say to those who legitimately applied and were rejected?
Decisions like this will just open the flood gates for future acts of fraud in the event of future tragedies.
How can a judge who described the defendant as someone who capitalized on these tragic events and saw the tragedy as a treasure trove allow him to keep 90% of what he stole.
It just doesn’t make sense.
It appears that when it comes to 9/11 or Ground Zero when there is a decision to be made the wrong one is almost always chosen.
No consideration for those who lost loved ones.
No compassion for those who continue to suffer.
No common sense.
No one held responsible from government officials to common thieves.
And Judge Victor Marrero keeps the streak alive.
