Police Officer Edward Byrne was murdered in 1988 while he guarded the house of a witness in a drug case. Byrne was a rookie officer 5 days into his 22nd birthday. His killers walked up to his car and shot him 5 times in the head with a .38 caliber handgun - then celebrated over his body after carrying out the hit which had been ordered by a drug lord on *any police officer. Byrne's death led to the recognition that the crack-cocaine epidemic was destroying NYC, and led to specialized narcotics units as well as the NYPD policy to partner officers up in patrol cars. His death led to a turn in the tide in the war on drugs in the 1980's.

Tell the parole board they do not deserve to be released.

      Cold blooded murderers should be given the Death Penalty...not Parole. At least keep them in jail for life!

      If police officers are going to risk their lives, then those killing a police officer who receive a life sentence should serve the ENTIRE life sentence.
