Statement of Mrs. Patricia Gilroy, widow of Police officer Stephen Gilroy who was killed by Shuaaib Raheem

Mrs. Gilroy said: 

“I don’t understand this decision at all.  The same three parole board officers came to the same decision after hearing all of the victim impact statements and reviewing all the documentation that they had never seen before.  How can that be?  What the hell were they thinking?  My family and Steve’s family and the families of the hostages and all the police officers involved are left to wonder what exactly justice is?  It sure isn’t this decision.”
