Parole Denied To Kansas Trooper's Killer

July 13, 2012  | 

The Kansas Prisoner Review Board denied parole to George Rainey, who shot and killed a Kansas Highway Patrol trooper in 1981, reports the Topeka Capital-Journal.

Rainey, 53, was sentenced to life in prison for first-degree murder in the July 11, 1981, gunshot slaying in Butler County of Ferdinand F. "Bud" Pribbenow, 47, a married father of four daughters.

Rainey ambushed Pribbenow during a traffic stop, fatally shooting the trooper in the chest. Rainey took Pribbenow's service weapon and led officers on a pursuit that ended in gunfire. Rainey was taken into custody after officers returned fire, striking him several times.

He should of been killed years ago. This cop killer will burn eternally in hell after he dies in prison. No parole for this piece of garbage.
