PBA statement on re-arrest and release of attempted cop-killer

The Daily News reports that Justin Murrell, who was convicted of dragging Det. Dalsh Veve behind a stolen car in 2017, has been rearrested after leading police officers on a high-speed chase in a stolen vehicle for the second time in less than a year.

PBA President Patrick J. Lynch:

“This attempted cop-killer represents everything that is wrong with our justice system right now. We tried to warn the city what would happen when he was set free. Every moment he spends free is not only an insult to our hero brother and his family — it is a real danger for New Yorkers.”
