NYS Court of Appeals Judge Found Dead in Hudson River; Harvard Professor: ‘This smacks of a racist Islamophobic misogynistic murder’

This is a really sad story, but since nobody can wait for the actual facts, the kook left had jumped head-first into the fever swamps.

An appeals court judge who was the first African-American woman appointed to New York’s highest court has been found dead on the shore of the Hudson River off Manhattan.

Police say the body of Sheila Abdus-Salaam, 65, was discovered just before 2 p.m. Wednesday along the river’s shore near Harlem, one day after being reported missing.

Police say her body showed no obvious signs of trauma. The medical examiner is to determine the exact cause of death.

Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who appointed Abdus-Salaam to the state’s Court of Appeals in 2013, called her a “pioneer” and a “trailblazing jurist.”

“As the first African-American woman to be appointed to the state’s Court of Appeals, she was a pioneer,” Cuomo said. “Through her writings, her wisdom and her unshakable moral compass, she was a force for good whose legacy will be felt for years to come.”

One early report said it was likely a suicide, but instead of waiting for the facts, the deranged left is racing to unseemly conclusions. Here’s constitutional law professor Laurence Tribe of Harvard:

We have no autopsy, no police report, no evidence, but here we have a “respected” law professor declaring it a “racist misogynistic murder.” You cannot be any more irresponsible than this, feeding crackpot conspiracy theories to people:

Considering who she was, we can say the NYPD and all law enforcement agencies in New York will do their jobs and find out the truth. But already you can see that nothing short of Trump in handcuffs for the “murder” will satisfy these nuts.

As we said, no evidence can change made up minds:

She’s black, she’s Muslim, she’s a judge, so obviously Trump had something to do with this.

Others have sniffed out an even deeper conspiracy:

Just one problem with that:

Can we possibly get back to the days when we waited for evidence before diving headfirst into the fever swamps?

The fact we have a Harvard law professor leading the charge is more than disturbing. It’s incredibly irresponsible.

There you go, case solved!

    I think this is a conspiracy, but Tribe et. al. is just trying to hide the most obvious culprit.

    It was less than a week ago that someone announced they were coming out of the woods in NY State. Since she didn’t get the job she wanted, HRC decided that ruling from the highest court in the state would be the best way to force people into behaving like she wants.

    Strange, unexpected murder/suicide… this has all the fingerprints of a Clinton scandal.

    Can’t we just have the fact that someone killed her and dumped her body in the river be enough of a crime?

    Do we really need hate-crime, river-crime, water-crime, race-crime, gender-crime, life-crime distinctions?

    Someone killed the lady. That’s the crime. It’s enough to be upset about that Laurence. You don’t have to smack her corpse with any labels or politics. It’s dead. That’s enough.

    The judge in Chicago was slain by a member of the same group reponsible for 98% of the (roughly) 750 shootings in Chicago in 2017.

    Odds are that this NY judge was a victim of the NY branch of this same group, and that the killers saw only a victim with money, jewelry or other valuables, and did not engage her in a theological debate.
