Parole Hearing Set for Killers of NYPD Cop

October 23, 2012  | 

The four men convicted of killing a young New York Police Department officer in 1988 have been granted a parole hearing for the week of Nov. 11, reports the Associated Press.

Philip Copeland, Scott Cobb, Todd Scott, and David McClary will be given separate interviews with parole board commissioners at the prisons where they are being held.

The four men were convicted of the Feb. 26, 1988 slaying of Officer Edward Byrne. The four shot Byrne in the head five times, while he sat in his marked patrol car in Queens in exchange for $8,000 from a narcotics trafficker who had been busted by Byrne a day earlier.

I hope the NYPD POA sends a strong letter of objection to the parole boards and I think it is ridicules that these AH's are even being granted a hearing. All of the justice system is falling apart...............we owe it to Officer Byrne's family to keep these scumbags in jail, because no amount of time served will be enough to punish these guys.

Disgusting they were not sentenced to death and executed let alone being allowed to apply for parolel. We can hope the parole boards are not loaded with bleedinghearts. but don't count on it.

No...No...No...No...No...for every shot they put into my brothers' head! I will never forget what they did. They intentionally sold their souls out for $ 8000- dollars! They NEED to stay in the HOLE where they belong. We need to protect our own always. Amen!
