Petitioning NEW YORK STATE PAROLE BOARD

@Arthur_Chien

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.
