Judge: NYPD Cops' Killer Eligible for Death

February 07, 2013  | 

A New York City man who was sentenced to be executed for the murder of two undercover police officers in 2003 — and who made headlines once again this week after it was revealed he impregnated one of his prison guards — was found by a judge on Thursday not to be mentally retarded and therefore eligible to be put to death.

The man, Ronell Wilson, shot and killed two undercover detectives — James V. Nemorin and Rodney J. Andrews — during a failed gun-buy operation on Staten Island in 2003. A federal jury found Mr. Wilson guilty of murder and handed down the first death sentence by a federal jury in the city in more than half a century.

I don't believe female prison guards should work in male prisons and male prison guards should not work in female prisons.

The males will try to flirt with the females and the females will try to flirt with the males to gain their trust.

@The Chosen One - I completely disagree with you. If you're a half decent human being, possess average intelligence, and use common sense, it doesn't matter what sex you are and what type of prison you work at.

Inmates are bad people. You don't sleep with or otherwise get emotionally involved with bad people. If you're not smart enough to know that, then you shouldn't work in a prison setting. Doesn't matter what gender you are.

How could anyone sleep with a cop killer. That child should be taken away and the female prison guard should be locked in solitary confinement for the rest of her miserable life. I can't believe there was a question if the prisoners IQ was too low to get the death penalty. If you can create a life then you can have your life terminated in old sparky.
