Man charged with attempted assassination of NYPD officers was out on parole despite rap sheet

People like Robert Williams, 45, need to be locked up for life. He is among those of whom Reagan observed that liberals wrongly posit “a belief that there was nothing permanent or absolute about man’s nature” and that by changing his environment “we could permanently change man and usher in a great new age.” Yet he was allowed to remain on the streets despite violating his parole. Now he is charged with attempting to assassinate a group of NYPD officers over the weekend and is still making threats from his hospital bed.
If not for the grace of God, there would likely be numerous dead NYPD officers as a result of two shootings over the weekend in the Bronx, where Williams allegedly targeted cops for assassination in separate incidents. In the first incident, he is accused of walking up to a police van on Saturday night and firing two shots at the two police officers in the van before fleeing the scene. Officer Paul Straffolino was hit in the neck and chin, but according to Police Chief Dermot Shea, the bullet narrowly missed his carotid artery, so he’s expected to make a full recovery.
While police were searching for Williams on Sunday morning, he allegedly walked into a police station on Longwood Ave. in the Bronx and opened fire. One bullet struck Officer Jose Gautreaux in the arm. After Williams ran out of bullets, he threw himself on the floor in surrender, according to police, and officers subdued him. The incident was caught on three surveillance cameras.

Williams was taken to Lincoln Hospital for his injuries on Sunday. According to prosecutors at Monday’s arraignment, he even threatened to target more cops while he was lying injured in the hospital bed. He’s charged with 13 accounts of attempted murder from both incidents over the weekend.
