My father, Officer Jack Dowd, was officer Sorrentino partner. My dad is no longer with us. Up until he passed December 2016, he supported the Sorrentino family in the denial of Parole for Russell Carrol inmate #82A0199.
Below is a statement my dad had made at one of the past parole hearings.

“Bob Sorrentino was one of the most dedicated and professional police officers I ever knew. In the hospital, while he was lying in excruciating pain from a 357 magnum gunshot wound, he had the professionalism and presence of mind to give me a detailed description of the shooter. We had chased a group of men who had committed robbery and assault in a local club that day, and they each have to share the responsibility of killing Bob, who was a great guy and great cop. It is my belief that Russell Carroll should die in prison just as his partners in crime did.”

My families prayers and support to the Sorrentino family. Another Parole Hearing...
40 years, God Bless you! Officer Robert Sorrentino
