'This Is Criminal Justice Reform in 2018': NY Assemblyman Blasts Release of Killers
A New York assemblyman questioned whether Democrats are "really serious about public safety" after a cop killer was granted parole.
Herman Bell, who killed two police officers in 1971, was granted parole and will soon walk free.
The decision came on the heels of the release of the gunman responsible for the deaths of 10 people in the 1984 “Palm Sunday Massacre.
State Sen. Marty Golden (R-Bay Ridge) said the parole board's membership was recently shuffled and that the members were nominated by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (D).
Cuomo had said he "disagrees" with the ruling, but his hands are tied when it comes to attempting to overturn the decision.
"The left, they're very hard on law-abiding gun owners, and very soft on actual killers and actual violent criminals," said Kieran Lalor (R) on "Fox & Friends First" Monday.
"This is criminal justice reform in 2018."
According to a report by the New York Post, a Parole Board report said Bell's admission of his crimes "denoted maturation and insight.”
