NYC PBA PRESIDENT REACTS TO THE VERDICT IN THE MURDERS OF DETECTIVES PARKER AND RAFFERTY

“We are gratified by this guilty verdict and we thank the jury who had the courage to weigh the evidence and come to a unanimous decision. I can’t help wonder though, if New York State had an active death penalty if Detectives Parker and Rafferty would be alive today. The law must instill a fear of swift and harsh punishment in order to be an effective deterrent to violent criminal acts.”
