PBA SAYS JUDGE GAVE JUSTICE THE JURY DIDN'T

 

Upon hearing the sentence handed down to cop-killer Lamont Pride, PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

“Juries can be easily misled by professional criminals who will say anything to avoid being held responsible for their heinous crimes as happened in this case. We are fortunate to have had a judge preside at this trial who recognized the jury's mistake and applied maximum consecutive sentences to afford Peter Figoski's family, friends and colleagues a measure of justice. Should this cold-blooded cop-killer survive over four decades in prison and become eligible for parole, I can promise you that a new generation of PBA members will be there to voice our vehement opposition to his release.”
