Career Criminal Gets Released On Bail After Shooting Cop, Gets Arrested Again

Antoine Mack was caught in possession of a loaded firearm while he was out on bail for the shooting of a Boston cop.

Worcester, MA – A convicted felon accused of shooting a Boston police officer was out on bail over the weekend when he was caught with a loaded firearm.

Antoine Maurice Mack, 36, was already facing charges in the shooting of a police officer on Sept. 23, 2018 when he was caught with a loaded .380-caliber Walther pistol, the Telegram & Gazette reported.

Police said Mack and a companion shot and wounded Boston Police Officer Patrick Curtain during a plainclothes encounter with the Boston Police Department’s Youth Violence Strike Force.

He was initially ordered held without bail, but after a dangerousness hearing in the Suffolk County Court, Mack was granted a $10,000 cash-only bail, the Telegram & Gazette reported.

Mack also had at least three prior drug convictions, according to court records.

On Friday, Worcester Police Officer Robert Sansoucy received a tip that Mack would be in his jurisdiction, and in possession of a firearm, that evening, according to the statement of facts filed with the court.

The police report said Officer Sansoucy spotted Mack at about 6:30 p.m. on May 24, sitting in the back seat of a white Toyota Camry, the Telegram & Gazette reported.

He initiated a traffic stop, and then with the help of another officer, he pulled the driver and Mack from the car and detained them in handcuffs.

The statement of facts said Officer Sansoucy found a loaded, silver Walther pistol with one bullet in the chamber inside the car, according to the Telegram & Gazette.

Mack was arrested and charged with carrying a firearm without a license, carrying a loaded firearm without a license, and being an armed career criminal with three prior crimes of violence or serious drug offenses.

The driver of the car was released, according to MassLive.

The assistant district attorney immediately called for the revocation of Mack’s bail in the Suffolk County case, the Telegram & Gazette reported.

He requested a dangerousness hearing and requested that Mack be held without bail pending the hearing.

Sean McGinty, Mack’s attorney, asked the judge not to revoke bail and questioned the legality of the search that led to her client’s arrest, the Telegram & Gazette reported.

Worcester District Court Judge David Despotopulos revoked Mack’s bail in the police shooting case and ordered him held without bail for that charge.

The judge scheduled the dangerousness hearing for Friday and ordered the career criminal to be kept in custody on the Worcester charges until afterwards, the Telegram & Gazette reported.

It was the right move. Release him. Collect $10,000. Then follow him. Re-arrest him. Put that cop killer away for life.

And now democRATS in Boston will come out of the woodwork demanding more “gun control” laws.

Of course good old Antoine was already in violation of just about every gun law in existence when he was caught, but that doesn’t matter.

What matters to democRATS is taking away the rights of the law abiding and using actions of criminals and crazies to do it.

I thought this was NYC at first. They're doing this now there too. All of the clean-up that Mayor Giuliani did is now unfortunately is being reversed. There may be some select areas where reform might be needed, but not across the board and DEFINITELY not where violent crimes are involved like it looks like is happening now.
