Twenty-four years ago a HS friend was assassinated as he guarded a drug informant's house. This year 4 of his murderers are eligible for parole.

Quote:
Thugs Philip Copeland, Scott Cob, Todd Scott and David McClary executed Byrne as he sat in a marked patrol car guarding the house of a drug-case witness in South Jamaica, Queens.
Byrne was shot five times in the head on Feb. 26, 1988, just a few days after his 22nd birthday.
He was murdered for $8,000 in blood money from drug boss Howard “Pappy” Mason, who had been arrested that week and offered the cash to anyone who killed a police officer in retaliation, officials said.
These criminals do not care about human life or law. Please help keep these men in prison where they belong.

Yes. 2008 there was a 20th anniversary commemoration of the murder in Newsday. At that time the reporter wrote in 5 years they would be eligible for parole. Chuck Schumer has written to the Parole Board asking the murderers remain in prison.

Time has gone by quickly.

R.I.P. Officer Byrne. May the scum who took your life never see the light of day again from the outside of a prison wall.

Trash like this belongs in a landfill, not out on the streets.

Regardless is people write letters or not, they've never going to get out.

I remember that case very well. It hardly seems possible that they could be up for parole already. Was his Dad a police officer also?

You never know what the parole board might decide. Letters from the public are helpful to make the case that these men should remain in prison.

They should get paroled they would probably be dead in one to three years (shot stabbed drugs the list could go on forever) and the taxpayers wouldn't have to pay to cage them
