The family of a slain Philadelphia Police officer is suing the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole, claiming that the death of Moses Walker could have been prevented.
Walker's family filed the civil suit in federal court, charging the board failed to do its job. The Walkers' attorney, Michael Barrett, says the man accused of killing Walker, Rafael Jones, should never been on the streets. Jones had failed a drug test and did not have the phone line necessary for his house arrest ankle bracelet to work

This is really a damn shame. This Officer should be alive today. From what I read it sounds like some people did not do their jobs. And if that is the case they should be held responsible. The parole officer asked for 2 warrants to be signed , and neither woman would sign the warrants. How and why the hell not? If he was in violation. sign the GODDAMN WARRANTS!!!! This was bullshit. I hope the Officer's family sues the hell outta the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and parole. Whatever they get it isn't enough!!! I'm sure they would rather have Officer Walker back. Somethings need to change and change drastically. Keep these ASSHOLES IN PRISON!!! If they are on parole or probation and they violate it send them back to prison. Screw 'em. I hope those two females are never in that position again to make those kind of calls. FIRE EM AND GET EM THE HELL OUTTA THERE!!!!

No one will be held accountable. This is the way of the liberal and always will be. They refuse to hold people accountable for their actions. Look at all the idiotic parole board decsions across the country, look at the moronic decsions of the courts. Whenever these people do something dumb they are allowed to continue on as if nothing happened.

Agree with the above comments. There's generally no accountability for parole boards. This will not change until enough people care enough to take action to change the system. I'm not holding my breath.

My heart goes out to the Walker family. I pray God strengthen them. My daughter has a severe brain injury as a result of poor monitoring of a person on Parole and probation. My daughter is in a vegetative state and has been for the past two years while he serve another prison term for another crime commented while under the board of parole and probation unrelated to the crime commented against my daughter. It's a shame! I pray God help us all.
