PLEASE HELP STOP THE RELEASE OF A COP KILLER

On March 31, 1988, Joevone Elster and four other Crip Gang Members.senselessly gunned down and murdered my brother Sgt George Aguilar, an 18 year police veteran with the Inglewood Police Dept.

Joevone Elster was the mastermind to rob the gas station that He worked at, which resulted in the murder of Sgt. Aguilar. Sgt Aguilar lost his life at young age of 46 years old, leaving behind 3 young children to grow up without their father

On April 13, 2017, Joveone Elster is up for a parole board hearing to be considered to be released from prison.

Last year there were more police officers shot or killed in the US than in any prior year and releasing a cop killer from prison, sends the wrong message to other criminals or would be murders.

I asked family members, friends, police officers and all those that are apposed to releasing cop killers from prison to send an email to the California Parole Board to let them know that "Cop Killers" should NEVER be set free.

Please send your email to: [email protected] and please make sure to reference:Joevone Elster CDCR# E38375

There not a day goes by that I don't think of you George, I miss you brother, Larry
