Suburban Cop Killer up for PArole
- We see the petitions at the desk and pass them around roll call whenever they come up. Does Chicago FOP ever circulate petitions for Officers killed in the line of duty for our suburban brothers and sisters? We're pretty sure we've seen some around at times, but is it a regular thing?
As the largest FOP organization in the state and second largest nationwide, one would hope that our voice could be heard to assist smaller Departments in making sure the criminals who killed their co-workers serve every minute of their sentences.
We received an e-mail today:
- As an avid reader of your blog, I noticed that you sometimes post about upcoming parole hearings for those who have killed police officers. I was wondering if you would be able to write a post about one that is a little closer to home for all of us.

This was my aunt's brother, and since both offenders were sentenced (with the intention that they die in prison) she has been leading a crusade each time they have come up for parole to ensure that they aren't released. Fortunately one of the offenders died in prison in 2009, but the other is unfortunately still alive and once again up for parole. I've also submitted this hearing to ODMP for posting on their "no parole for cop killers" page.
I've attached the cover letter and petition that she has drawn up, I (as well as my family and especially my aunt) would greatly appreciate if you would be able to create a post referencing this.
I've also been in contact with Duke over at dukesblotter.com, and he was kind enough to write a post on this as well, just trying to drum up whatever support I can so that they can deny parole for this scumbag again.
Thanks for your help and best regards,
Duke's Blotter has the petitions up on his site. We're hoping some interested parties can get these signed and forwarded to the Prisoner Review Board in a timely fashion.
