Our cops are scared they could get killed. Now God forbid a serial killer, child molester, or rapist be kept in jail for the rest of their lives.

You just made yourself sound so stupid, "Of Course". I bet if he killed your loved one you wouldn't want him out of prison either. The fact that he was a cop is irrelevant, but that's the exact reason why you're popping off at the mouth. If it said, "local murderer of a grocery store cashier is up for parole" then you wouldn't say a word about it. Grow a brain you unsympathetic jerk. A killer is a killer, regardless of who they kill. They just happened to write a newspaper article about this one.

Of course they want him to stay in jail. I bet his family does too! Who cares who wants him in jail?! The point is, all killers should stay in jail!

obviously there were alot of others that wanted him to stay in jail also b/c his parole was DENIED! Andrew Braden was sentenced to LIFE in prision and you are telling me that for you it's okay for him to get out 31 years later? he's only 50 years old....he could still build a life for himself before death, why should he be allowed that luxary that office whitwell was not allowed when he took his life just for simply doing his job?
lol!

If EVERY killer got the same punishment as a cop killer, no one would complain!
