This coming August 20, 2001, there will be a parole hearing for Kathy Boudin, who was involved in the 1981 Brinks robbery in which two Nyack Police Officers and a Brinks guard were killed.
Nine children were left without parents due to this robbery (ranging in age from 2 months to 21 years old). It is time for the law enforcement communityto ensure that cop-killers stay in prison.
Please take the time to write a letter (draft attached below) opposing
any possibility of parole for Boudin. The letters should be addressed to:
1) Honorable George Pataki
Governor of New York
Albany, NY 12224
2) Mr. Brion Travis
New York State Parole Board
97 Central Avenue
Albany, NY 12206
Please pass this onto as many people as you can. Thank you for your assistance.
Rich Gallo, President
Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association

Dear (Governor Pataki/Mr. Travis):
I am writing to voice my opposition to the parole application of Ms.
Boudin, who is being held in a New York State prison for her role in the
1981 Rockland County Brinks robbery. Ms. Boudin's actions left two Nyack, NY
Police Officers and a Brinks guard dead. Nine children were left without
fathers, ranging in age from 2 months to 21 years old.
I oppose the release of someone who took part in various terrorist actions,
one of which resulted in law enforcement officers being killed. In my
opinion, Ms. Boudin should not be released.
ADDRESS (especially if from NY)
