In case you missed this over the weekend Judith Clark, the domestic terrorist involved in the infamous 1981 Brinks Robbery that left 2 police officers — Waverly Brown and Edward O’Grady — and Brink’s guard Peter Page dead, is up for parole again. The fact that she is even eligible for parole is the result of Governor Andrew Cuomo declaring her rehabilitated (can’t help but ask what is Governor Cuomo’s expertise in declaring her rehabilitated) and minimizing her actual crime. The NYS Conservative Party has launched a petition to keep her in prison; please sign the petition and send a message that killing police officers will land you in prison for the rest of your natural life.
