Prison Official Helped N.Y. Cop Killer Get Parole

June 15, 2010  | 

Brooklyn cop killer Shu'aib Raheem won parole with the help of a prison official who testified there was only a "very, very slim" chance he would break the law if freed.

Superintendent Joseph Smith told the Parole Board that Raheem had been a "stable" prisoner during his time behind bars, according to a transcript obtained by the Daily News.

Prison Official Smith needs to get his head out of his hind quarters and wake up. Maybe he is getting just a little to close to his "friends" in the prison. Am I the only one who is sickened by this Prison Official? Maybe if he likes him so much and he gets released, Mr. Smith will allow him to live in his home, you know, since he is such a nice guy and all.
