Dominic Cinelli’s parole records show a checkered past: a rehabilitated junkie who started shooting heroin at 14, he was a career criminal who at one point was serving three concurrent life sentences for several armed robberies, armed assault with intent to commit murder, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and unlawful possession of a firearm.
But an appeals court decision made him eligible for parole and he walked in February 2009. The Parole Board at that time noted: “Cinelli’s release to community supervision at this time is not incompatible with the welfare of society.”.....
Every member of that parole board who voted yes should be shot.
I just heard about the shooters record on the way home from work today. Who in their right mind could grant this dirt bag parole? If I recall the story correctly he tried to break out of prison twice? Not to mention all of the other charges.
I heard some audio on WBZ this morning from the parole hearing and it was something like, "We're taking a huge risk by letting you out there......good luck and congrats." As I'm thinking WTF. We need to get some competent people on that board apparently.
I wonder why police officers even bother. Scumbags get arrested over and over again, in some cases at the risk of officers' lives each time, yet the judicial system and parole boards just turn them back out to try again. Why risk your life for a system that evidently doesn't care? No man should be asked to die for a cause that others intentionally make futile.
In wake of officer's slaying, governor announces sweeping housecleaning at Parole Board
Governor Deval Patrick has announced sweeping changes at the Massachusetts Parole Board, including the resignations of five board members and the executive director, after an inquiry into the board's decision in 2008 to free a violent career criminal who shot and killed a Woburn police officer in late December.
Patrick said he was moving to restore the public's confidence in an agency whose failures had led to the killing of veteran Officer John "Jack" Maguire on the day after Christmas.
"After this review, I cannot say that the Parole Board or parole office did all they could to ensure public safety," he said at a State House news conference.
Bah, it's behind a regwall. Did people lose their jobs?
