Chicago cop Anthony Abbate recently convicted of battering a female bartender less than half his weight got off with is basically a slap on the wrist by Cook County Judge John Fleming who stated “If I believed sentencing Anthony Abbate to prison would stop people from getting drunk and hitting people, I’d give him the maximum sentence,” Fleming said.
A video of the encounter has been widely seen showing this ape savagely punching and kicking the 125-pound Karolina Obrycka as she tended bar in February 2007. The altercation happened after she refused to serve him more drinks. Abbate’s defense attorney, Peter Hickey, stated that Obrycka used excessive force, throwing Abbate–who is more than twice her size–into a wall where he hit his head. Hickey argued that Abbate acted in self defense when he threw the woman into a wall and then to the floor.
This video is disturbing.
My hope is that Abbate, his disgusting attorney Hickey and clueless loser Judge John Fleming get their just rewards. Abbate should lose his job, Hickey should be disbarred and Fleming must not be voted to the bench again.
Lest you forget here is an image of Abbate (middle) and his attorney (right).
