199 Years = Just 43 Years

  • When Robert Nagle learned recently that the man who murdered his father was scheduled to be paroled, Nagle's first thought was about whether Henry Michael Gargano was still a cold-blooded killer.

    "And then I was surprised at the justice system," Nagle, 49, said Wednesday. "Then again, I know that the justice system doesn't always serve justice."

    On Oct. 27, 1967, Gargano and two other men unleashed a torrent of gunfire at police officers during a robbery at the Northlake Bank, killing Detective Sgt. John Nagle and Officer Anthony Perri. Two other officers were wounded.

  • But also astonishing to Northlake police and the relatives of the two dead officers was news that the U.S. Parole Commission had set Gargano's release date for Sept. 3 without notifying them. Gargano and the other two men each had been sentenced to 199 years in prison, and the victims assumed that meant they would remain behind bars the rest of their lives.

    Two weeks before the Northlake killings, the men had wounded two Ohio police officers in a similar shooting during a grocery robbery.
And people wonder why cops are always so down on prisons, courts, early parole and society in general. It's for reasons like this where an asshole who killed two cops, wounded four others and never expressed an iota of remorse isn't dying in a concrete box where he was scheduled to rot decades ago for robbing a community of its protector, a wife of her husband and children of their father.

None, whatsoever.


It truly is a sad, sad time to be in law enforcement.


I am SO disgusted.

And the NEXT time ("cause we know it will happen again) Gargano commits a crime, I truly feel for the Victoms... They have NO recourse.

Henry Michael Gargano was really evil. He was wounded in the shooting and there was never any question of his guilt.

I remember seeing the two dead officer's bloody uniform shirts hanging in the Crime Lab.

I was surprised to hear the scumbag was still stealing our air.

Gargano must be close to 70 years-old now and with any luck won't be around much longer.

That Northlake Bank heist gone wrong was John "Bulldog" Drummond's first big TV news story. We both talked about it some five yearss ago.

Can George C Knights and Johnny Veal be close being freed for their 1970cold-blooded sniper murders of two great Task Force officers at Cabrni Green?

God, I hope not.

The FBI got a tip that Gargano and the other two were planning an escape during their trial and found a gun when they searched his cell. He also escaped at least once from Marion. He's a no good, cold blooded SOB who should never be out. The Northlake guys never had a chance when Gargano and the other two opened up on them with automatic weapons that they had stolen from a National Guard armory.

Keep in mind that this is NOT unique.

When you receive notice from FOP (petitions) or the Memorial Foundation
(26th Cal/Springfield Parole Hearings) it's usually because some other mofo Chicago cop killer initially sentenced to what was then considered a life (100+ yrs)sentence is now eligible for parole.
Some of the families have to relive this pain 'annually' unless they are voted by the parole board for the '3 year set' but still it's totally unfair.
Many a cop-killer was kept in prison by just 1 vote!
That's why it's important to support keeping these people in prison where they belong after being justly sentenced to LIFE!!!

Jodi, if you read this insignificant blog, and I know you do, here is some free advice. I wasn't going to bother, but things are so bad now, I thought I would give it a shot:

MAN THE BEAT CARS! All of them, from 005 to 016. Two man, at least on 1st and 3rd Watch. Your program of 'Specialized Units' running around the City doesn't work. You've had enough time to realize that I hope, and we have at least 4 dead Officers that were part of that experiment.

Consistent manpower in an area prevents crime as opposed to responding to it. It's Police 101, something you would already know if you worked as a P.O.. Your 'Special' units spend more time going from place to place, just driving there, learning the area, getting to know the players....all a waste of time. A Beat car hits the street after a short roll call and is on the scene.

Put one citywide unit out there to bulk up manpower when needed. The Officers will do more crime fighting by their mere presence on their beat than they will ever do running back and forth across the City trying to get to an area.

Stop listening to whoever is giving you advice. Crime is up, homicides are up and your Officers hate you. You're doing something (everything?) wrong. Time to change your strategy.

Is a 70 YO geezer any real threat to society anymore?

It seems pointless to lock him up any longer simply because the criminal justice system was unable to find a way to execute him.

The system sucks, not just for cops, but for all crime victims. No matter what punishment is confered on a criminal for his crimes, it can't make up for what he did.

The rules about parole are what they are, and while they often seem counterproductive, they still are the rules.

Those bizarre sentences were pre 1970 called indeterminate sentencing. The convicted were given sentences like 100-199yrs. That's what the killers of Rizzato and Severin got. Their killers come up for parole every three years. The state has done away with indeterminate sentencing,but those sentenced by that system come up for parole. There are approx 200 POS that are on that system.

TWO Chicago Police Officers killers have been released in the last 8 yrs. Officer John R. Tucker E.O.W.Oct. 8, 1968 and Robert J.Strugala E.O.W. June 16, 1974

GO TO PAROLE HEARINGS!!!!!!!

It does make a difference. These POS have lawyers and liberals working on their side.

The Memorial organization sends a bus down for all Chicago Police hearings. Log on the site and get the info.

I have been writing letters and going to parole hearings since the 1980's for my father, Officer Kenneth Kaner E.O.W June 19, 1970.

The system is a fucking disgrace to murdered Law Enforcement.

We have made a difference by going to these hearings. The parole board has been very close to voting to release many cop killers and we have changed the tide. Cline helped make that happen. That is fact.

Watch out for the big one. Officer Loftus is the one to watch. The gangbanger who killed him has a lot of support from our lovely politicians. Luis Gutierrez is just one of them.

VICTIMS and VICTIM families MUST join forces and let it be known upon sentencing that 199 years MEANS 199 years. How sneaky the parole board is to allow this to happen and not even notify the victims. They know if they notify the victims that there would be outrage, that's why they hide it. They must have a guarantee that there is truth in sentencing. NOT 20 years and get out in 6.

This madness must stop. Where do you turn? The legislature? They are just as corrupt as those who are put in jail.

I say start holding the judge, asa and parole boards responsible for these actions, let there be legislation that they can be sued, (just like police officers), for their misdeeds.

Get ready because this will be the trend. Off topic BUT yesterday 016 did a great job after a woman was carjacked at gunpoint at Harlem and Foster, a lengthy pursuit ensued and ended at Ohio-Halsted where the offender was caught after crashing, and then fleeing on foot;he was taken into custody and weapon recovered, 2 officers injured in the crash; here's the kicker: the offender is an animal from the Gresham Neighborhood on the south side who was on parole for guess what? robbery, sentenced to 7 years in 07, and did less than 3, he also was sentenced to 8 years for robbery in 02, had he served either of these prior sentences the poor woman from yesterday's robbery would have been spared the absolute nightmare that she was forced to experience. When are they going to stop this parole garbage and make people serve their entire sentence? when will they start holding the parole board liable for releasing these repeat offenders? enough is enough already.
Springfield are you listening, how about a new law that you must serve your entire sentence if you are a repeat offender????? stop making prison a revolving door, isn't the safety of the citizenry worth it?

I detest writing this but the release of Gargano (who is now 77 years old) is about dollars and cents. Medical care (as he ages) and, of course, the continued cost of incarceration.

We have no idea what medical/health problems Gargano has suffered: Cardiac or cancer, etc. He's not gettin' any younger, so his health and the cost of "maintenance" for Henry will always increase. And he sure as hell ain't gettin' a job!

Sure, as taxpayers, we will continue to pay for Gargano's health/medical care, but the U.S. Bureau of Prisons will not have that expense coming out of their budget. That's what this is about!

OT --

Folks, this is the 15th anniversary of the 1995 killer heat wave. 106 degrees and 100% humidity piled up more than 700 bodies in refrigerated trailers down at the M.E.

I was out walkin' in it. In my circumstances at the time, I found a discarded air conditioner of a brand known to me to have a good working reputation, and lugged it, walking for blocks, to a bus stop. Hea-vy!

Cleaned it up -- hosed the dirt out of the coils so's it could breathe again -- and got it into my family member's window. Had to move it again into a window closer to the outlet because the low line voltage in the older building's poor wiring was causing even a heavy-duty three-foot A/C extension cord to overheat (fewer volts=more amps). The room she slept in had no doors, just a wide doorway. I made a heavy thermal door from Army blankets and construction plastic sheeting. I covered the hot west-facing windows with aluminum foil, shiny-side-out, and hung some unzipped kids' sleeping bags, etc. inside as further insulation against the blast outside.

A block from us, an elderly woman died while waiting for her daughter to take her to the hairdresser, for God's sake. To paraphrase Carl Sandburg in his poem Anna Imroth, "It was the Hand of God and the lack of air conditioning."

Don't let this happen to anyone you know. Those 5000 BTU "Haier" A/Cs are out there by the skid, sometimes as low as $69.95, and don't forget anything else you may need to install it and block out the heat (aluminum foil, duct tape, and blue insulating foamboard cut to push into window openings from the inside once the foil is on the glass -- the two-inch stuff gives an R-value like a solid wall, and is light as a feather and cuts with a utility knife). Who cares what it looks like; it's temporary, it works, and it saves lives. Best place is to put it is in a small bedroom with a door -- and hang blankets/plastic over the door as additional insulation.

Don't forget to take care of the electric bill; you can do all this and they still won't switch it on because they are quite rightly afraid of the cost. Skip the new wheels for the Harley this year and save a life.

I'll never forget watching the TV news showing the workers at the ME's office, in their disposable pink smocks and booties, sitting outside for a minute with their heads in their hands in exhaustion. So many dead...

Another dome of hot air is moving in from the West right now, and may seal in similar conditions for some days, especially in the coming week.

Improvise. Adapt. Overcome.

Protect the elderly.

He is in prison because he represents a warning to all people who would commit murder. He warns them that if they are caught, they will die in a cage.

Years ago they would simply hang such murderers in a town square. The warning was much more stark in those days. And they had a lot less murders.

Sure, as taxpayers, we will continue to pay for Gargano's health/medical care, but the U.S. Bureau of Prisons will not have that expense coming out of their budget. That's what this is about!

Wht's the difference? The TAXPAYER will still foot the bill for this asshole. He should have been given the electric chair 409 years ago, end of story, end of taxpayer's grief.

And people wonder why cops are down on prisons, the court system....Guess what SCC, so are the rest of us! We are sick and tired of a broken justice system wherein you cops generally are doing your jobs but the judicial system and corrections system is not! We are sick and tired of the likes of Darrell Washington knocking the teeth out of a woman using an ATM in the Loop meanwhile the 25yr old jagoff already has in excess of 30 prior arrests. Then to add insult to injury, the morose mayor thinks the problem on the streets is guns while his Democratic coharts are tying to get the gang leader killer of Terry Loftus for example out on parole too. Hey Daley, here is a simple thought: maybe you should be more of advocate to keep violent people who commit violent crimes in prison. I wonder if that may be a big help to crime reduction? The whole system is a cluster fuck. The state PRB is a joke and it looks like the federal parole system is more of the same. I started out as an angry citizen at 0730 when I saw the picture in the Sun-Times of Ed Burke walking out of the Soderberg memorial in a clown hat with a star on a chain around his neck like he is somebody important. Sickening Ed! I was glad to see him walking alone. What a cretin in my opinion. My prayers to the fallen and their families. Too few are sacrificing too much and there is no accountability for those responsible for doing nothing.

I remember this killing. I was 17 living in Austin. This was big news. They had at least one BAR 30-06 automatic rifle. That tore right through the squad car and officers.

They shot two officers a few months before, in Ohio.

I am constitutionally opposed to release of anyone convicted of murdering a police officer, at any age. I don't give a shit about "rehabilitation."

A prison sentence for murdering a police officer is gift enough; the assholes are still alive! Much more of a gift than they gave those officers.

The offender(s) should stay in prison until the officers come back to life, not a second before.

May he rot in that place and shit in his diapers and gum his food and thank his maker I am not warden of that prison.

"As a tax payer I have no problem paying for him to die in prison."

Me neither! How much more do they want, 100, 200 bucks?

How much is a lethal injection going for these days?

Is the chair any cheaper?

Rope is cheap. What this country needs is a few more hanging judges.
Both kinds.

Anyone have good website or place for bulk ammo?
-------------------------

Check out www.ombexpress.com in Lenexa, KS. Sign up for their mailing list (one, maybe two per week). Back when it was REALLY scarce, I was buying WW White Box target loads by the case (500 rnds) at $156 to, IIRC, around $200 and that was the delivered price. They run specials every so often and include free ground shipping on case lots. Plenty of other ammo but I loaded up on 9, 40 and 45. They were beating "Dirt Cheap Ammo" and they actually had the stuff in stock. They also carry the Ranger grade ammo in +P and JHP. Local gun shop (oops, just let it slip I'm not a one of King Shortshank's serfs) told me the price I was paying was less than his cost from his jobber. Stock up before King Asswipe decides you can't buy more than two rounds per month and imposes a $27 tax on each round.

To anyone that wants to make the argument that the State will save money by releasing him (Gargano). The only way that argument tracks is if he comes out of prison a productive member of society. When he is released it will be just another example of the IDOC squeezing out one more smelly piece of mess on the unsuspecting public.

His first official act of freedom will be signing up to suck off the public tit for the rest of his miserable, pathetic life.

Good move quinn, you moved a jag from one column to another and yet we are still paying for his miserable ass.

Well, at least he can walk around, smell the fresh air, buy an ice cream cone, and generally be happy. That seems fair right? I mean it isn't like he did immeasurable damage to the world?

What would be great is, if this piece of trash is released, every department in the vicinity of where he chooses to live, takes turn following (in a non-harassing way) him around in a van marked "EARLY RELEASED COP KILLER VOLUNTEER MONITORING PATROL".

"OT I had a traffic stop and was assisted by cmndr yamashimura(spelling?). He got out, went to the passenger side and acted as my assist officer."

Sounds like Cmdr. Gary Yamashiroya-A3. Great Guy. Real Police.


If you are really an assistant state's attorney (and I believe you are, because you believe a middling to below average guy like Yamashiroya is the "real police"), stay off this site. You are not welcomed nor is your work respected or appreciated. We work in spite of you. Trust me, we know your opinions of us, and the feelings are mutual. Go plan your run for judge. Just go.

He will be cheaper out of prison then in.

It's not like this is the only unrepentant murderer ever paroled. And it's not as if it will be the last.

"Speaking of pieces of shit cold-blooded killers, remember Henry Brisbon? He was the filth that did the shotgun murders on I57 in the 1970s."

Yeah, I think it was on innocent White couples whose cars had broken down. He's still behind some kind of thick Plexiglass down at Tamms, a la "Silence of the Lambs." There is no behavior you can improve upon there to move up the ladder for privileges because, well, no behavior is allowed. Period.

What was the sentence? 3,000 years, as I recall. "Sends a message..."

Henry Brisbon is the poster child for citizens having the right to concealed carry. He and his crew would travel I-57 and bump a car on the highway. They liked to especially do it to women driving alone. Then when they would stop to check for damage in those pre cell phone days, they would sexually assault them, rob them and ultimately shotgun them. He is the kind of psychopath that liberals refuse to believe exists. What they did to a woman from Darien driving up 57 one evening is the kind of thing that makes you remember Silence of the Lambs was only a movie. And then while in prison, Henry murdered a fellow inmate.
