Hopefully there will be no holding back as to the supervision of such a criminal.

If the mafia were still as big today as they were back in the 70's, would we have the asian/latino terrorist groups that we have nowadays? Makes me wonder?

Leave him alone he did his time, let him live the rest of his life. The media is sensationalizing this and making it bigger than it really is. Law enforcement wishes they just had the mob to deal with like the old days, rather than all that they deal with now.

Mr. Marrapese has served his time in prison for crimes he committed over 25 years ago. Now the Media and the RI State Police should leave him alone. The State Police sounds like they want him to make a mistake. I do not believe he will make the same mistakes as before let it go. He is a rehabiltaed person after 25 years in prison. He now deserves to live his life with his family.

Damn shame we can't just let the man live without judgement!! We are all human and we all are a 10th of a second away from sin.. It's only a matter of what your trigger is and in some cases what your pleasure/weakness is. So to rush to judgement on this man before he even takes his first breath of freedom, is rediculous.. We live in a state where it's ok to keep the word "Plantation" in our State's full name. Whats anymore murderous than that? Why don't people try judging that for a bit. I think that is an even bigger problem. But I don't ever here that being judged. Why is that?

the guy needs to stay in prison. 25 years for the life of another man? he's a murderer and his prison record shows he hasn't learned a dam thing behind bars.

He served his time. It is up to him to proof himself. I would think after 25 years of incarceration he will have a lot of adjusting to do with the outside world. Give the man a chance. PhilADELPHIA, pA.

Folks: Marrapese's release from prison is yet another smokescreen intended to distract our focus away from the brutal, ruthless, and criminally corrupt individuals who run corporations and our government.

Look into the man he killed. He was a killer too and at the time was going around beating and robbing everyone.

I think people should mind thier own bizness he did what he did and also did his time. it was people like him years ago that made the streets safe for our families at night. maybe we should consider an eye for an eye who are we to judge when we don't even know what really went down we it was just the two of them together or what was said i mean we should all get a life of our own
