Soft Justice Criticized: Daughter Lashes Out as Alleged Shooter, Out on Bail, Targets Family and Friends
Natalie Questa, 32, expresses outrage at the justice system as Lenue Moore, previously accused of breaking into Jaqueline Billini’s home, allegedly shoots Billini, family friend LeVaugh Harvin, and their pit bull Zeus during a dog walk.
Moore, initially arrested in April, was released on low bail and now faces charges related to the double killing.
Questa, grieving her mother’s tragic death, condemns the system, calling Moore’s release a ‘slap in the face.’
Billini, a court analyst in the Bronx, believed in the justice system but became a victim of violence despite following legal procedures.
Shocking footage circulated online showing Moore breaking into Billini’s apartment, injuring Billini and her boyfriend during a dispute over a barking dog.
Despite the severity of the incident, Moore was released on a low bail sum.
Billini and Harvin, along with their pit bull Zeus, were fatally shot during a walk in Highbridge Park.
Moore, their neighbor, was swiftly identified as the suspect.
Billini’s family had sought legal protection after the initial attack.
Despite protective measures, Moore’s alleged actions resulted in a double killing.
Billini’s family and friends criticize the justice system for failing to adequately address the earlier threat, leading to devastating consequences.
Billini’s daughters describe her as having ‘a heart of gold,’ and the sudden loss leaves a void in their family and community.
Friends express disbelief that a woman close to retirement had to live in constant fear.
The spokesman for the state Office of Court Administration defends the judge’s decision for low bail, emphasizing that judges weigh various factors to make decisions in the interest of justice.
This tragic incident highlights concerns about the effectiveness of the justice system and the consequences of releasing individuals with a history of violence on low bail.
The emotional toll on victims’ families underscores the need for a thorough review of the bail process and its impact on public safety.Read More On The Topic On TDPel Media
