Another Killer Denied Parole

  • Parole was denied Thursday for a man convicted of killing a Chicago Police officer in 1973.

    A contingent of Chicago cops traveled to Springfield on Thursday morning to attend the parole hearing for Joseph Bigsby, who was sentenced to more than 200 years in prison for the 1973 slaying of Officer Edward Barron and the attempted murder of another officer.

    Bigsby has been in custody since the date of the murder on Sept. 28, 1973, according to the Illinois Dept. of Corrections. He was sentenced in June 1975 to 200 years for murder with intent to kill or injure, 50 years for attempted murder and 20 years for armed robbery.

    Police officers attended the hearing “in support of the fallen officer and to assure that the individual responsible for these crimes serves his full sentence and that early parole is denied,” a statement from police said.

A two-hundred-year sentence, yet we still have to send people to these hearings to ensure some useless democrat appointee doesn't get the idea that this piece of trash ought to be waslking the streets breathing the air again.

The only way he should ever come out of prison is in a bodybag in the back of a garbage truck.

Let this garbage live out his life at the Danville prison, A friend of mine works there and if the gang bangers don't kill you AIDS will, that hell hole is a petri dish of AIDS infested pieces of human fucking garbage. 200 years for killing a cop? How about 30seconds in the chair? "Ole Smokey" like they used to do in Illinois before the liberals took over.
The definition of a liberal; "someone who has never been a victim of violent crime"

This POS was 16 when he did this (DOB 12/26/56 per IDOC inmate search), has been in custody since it happened, so nearly 38 years, and could very well live another 20 or more years in prison. I really think that killing a cop should be a capital offense in all states, too bad you guys can't somehow become federally affiliated so it's a federal crime.
Even if he did somehow get paroled, what the hell kind of life would he have anyway? Who's going to give a job to an ex-con cop killer with no adult experience outside of prison?

I worked with Ed Barron in the 004 District. He was a good man and a great police officer. He died way to young, killed by a punk gangster purse snatcher.

Hope his killer never sees the light of day.

A missing reminder of this topic is that the bus trip to Springfield is sponsored by 'our' Chicago Police Memorial Foundation.
Our CPMF along with all the dedicated attendees thus far has precluded any Chicago Police murderer from an early release from their original sentence.

(This trip occurs 3-4 time annually)

The theme, "Never Forget" are more than mere words.
Moreover, it's our honor and duty to 'Honor Our Fallen.'

Thanks to ALL involved!!!

Off topic a little. Save the date of Oct 12th 2011. It is the date of the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation poker tournament at the Horseshoe Casino.. More details to be released shortly.

But an above poster was right, these parole trips are sponsored by the CPMF, so come on out and give them your support.
