Bus Trip for Parole Hearing
- A group of Chicago police officers will be in Springfield today when the Illinois Parole Board meets to decide the fate of a convicted cop-killer. [...]
Richard Luckey will be 80 years old next month. 35 years ago, he shot and killed Chicago Police Officer Robert Wenzel during a traffic stop on Lake Shore Drive.
Luckey and his passenger allegedly had been making plans to pull off an armed robbery before they were stopped.
Sgt. Patrick O’Malley is among 27 officers appearing at the parole hearing and says the group wants “to make sure he serves the time he was sentenced”, 75 to 150 years.
The Chicago Police Department moved to two-person squad cars after Officer Bob Wenzel’s murder on a dark January morning in 1973.
Anyone have a report from the scene? How did it go?
