AND A COP KILLER GOES FREE
Piece Responding to the Release of a Cop Killer

will from the politically correct.
On Sunday, June 22, 2003, after serving twenty-two years of a
maximum thirty-year sentence, a cop killer went free.
Out of respect for the memory of Officer William J. Perry, I will
not mention the name of the worthless being that took his life.
Three days before Christmas, December 22, 1980, Officer Perry was riding
the train from Harrison where he had been at court.
He was in plainclothes, wearing body armor while a badge dangled
from the chain around his neck. As
the crowded train rambled towards the Journal Square Station, Perry
observed someone puffing on a cigarette.
He could have ignored the infraction, hiding comfortably behind the
anonymity which comes from being in plainclothes.
Officer Perry was a good cop, and good cops step up to the plate
even when it would have been easier not to.
Officer Perry walked over to the man and told him to stop smoking.
Witnesses recounted that the man became loud and verbally abusive toward
Perry. After the train arrived at the station, Perry pulled the man from
the train car and onto the platform.
Immediately a fist fight broke out.
The punching and grappling continued with both men spilling onto
While fighting on the tracks, the suspect, apparently, maneuvered to a
more advantageous body position than Perry and was able to gain a free
hand. Undoubtedly, at several points during the fight, many a hardened
criminal would have fled the scene choosing to blend into a crowded
terminal in order to slip away rather than continue the fight.
No, not this guy; this animal’s instinct for killing would be
Witnesses observed the suspect remove a handgun from his pocket, take aim
at Officer Perry, a husband and father of two, and shoot him multiple
times in his chest. One of the rounds ricocheted off Perry’s badge and
into his neck. In that
instant the animal had shown his true nature, he had become a cop killer,
one of society’s most feared predators. The cop killing animal then ran
along the tracks to the street and carjacked an occupied vehicle,
victimizing yet another person.
In the days following the release, Perry’s wife and two kids must have
wrestled with the pain of having lost their father to this worthless
scumbag, once again trying to find a way to reconcile it.
My heart as well as the hearts of police officers everywhere is
I truly hope that God levels his almighty hand upon this animal’s soul
in some way, shape, or form, removing this evil being from the face of our
earth, sparing other innocent people from his predatory inclinations. I
truly believe that someday this animal will be lying in the gutter taking
his last breath when the last thing his eyes will see is a cop standing
over him. An image of Officer William J. Perry standing there, handcuffs
in hand, poised and ready to finish the arrest he started many years ago;
ready to take him before God so that he may be judged and sentenced to
serve for all eternity in Hell.
article! I mean, excellent, in the way it was written. The
reality is completely sickening. It should be simple. If you
touch a cop, you go to prison. If you murder a cop, you go to
agree with one of the earlier posts. I got chills reading this
article. Such BS. Nice job Ptl. X."
just so demoralizing. We see this crap a couple of times a
year. Everyone always says that with the "new laws" this
won't happen. We'll see ten years from now."
think this is the most frustrating thing for me. I don't understand
how someone convicted of murder can ever see the light of day. It
should be automatic death penalty for killing a cop. Just look at
the poll on the main page. If that's what the people want, I don't
understand why politicians don't do it."
work odd hours, most Holidays, so-so pay, risk our life on a daily
basis...for what? To maybe pay the ultimate sacrifice and have our
murderer walk freely among our grieving families? Thank you Mr. Senator
and Mr. Congressman for allowing this miscarriage of justice!!!!
X has a tremendous ability to express the feelings of those associated
with law enforcement in regard to the loss of a brother who has had his
life snuffed out by a worthless piece of scum. May the "bad guy"
soon "get his" before he takes another life..

you for your thoughtful guest article, Patrolman "X" It is too
bad that our justice system is not as wise as you are."
a joke our system is. Killing a cop is the worst crime in a
civilized society. He should have been fried. I got chills
reading the last paragraph of that article. Great author."
