KEEP COP-KILLERS IN JAIL

A Message from Patrick J. Lynch, PBA President


Keep Cop-Killers in JailThanks to a great deal of hard work and lobbying by this union, today's cop-killers can be sentenced to life in prison without parole.  Sadly, that wasn’t always the case and there are literally dozens of dangerous cop-killers who are regularly given a shot at freedom through parole.  It has long been the PBA’s position that anyone who kills a police officer would not think twice about killing a civilian and that they should remain incarcerated for the rest of their lives.  The system, however, allows them to argue for parole every two years once they’ve served their minimum sentence.

This union has been and will continue to be very vocal in our opposition to the parole requests of any cop-killer.  But we can’t do it alone and you can help. 

By clicking the “Keep Cop-Killers in Jail” button at top right, you will have an opportunity to tell state officials that you oppose the release of a specific, or all, cop-killers.  Simply click on the name of the deceased officer, type in your last name and zip code in the appropriate box and press send and a copy of your objection will be included in the inmate’s parole folder.  If you wish to send an individual letter of objection for every cop-killer on the list, simply check the “Send a letter for all cop-killers” box. This is a simple way for you to register your disapproval of parole for cop-killers.  Every objection counts against the release of the cop-killer, so be sure to have your family and friends do it too.

Working together, we can keep cop-killers right where they should be…behind bars.

Thank you for your support,

Pat Lynch
