Sad to say but sometimes the justice system works better for the criminal. I bet if that jury was the ones getting shot at there probably would have been a different outcome. But anyway we celebrate your life you were so courageous and didn't back down from these clowns. God bless you and until we meet one day rest in the arms of our lord . You are not and will never be forgotten

I'm always amazed at when the topic of a biased and broken justice system comes up but it is never talked about from the view that the victims and their families are the ones who suffer from that broken system. If the argument is to be made that the justice system is broken, this is a clear cut example of that brokenness. Seven Correctional Officers dead, not only no charges for the suspect, one of several who were responsible, but a pardon and release from prison which leads to two police officers being shot and killed by the same suspect. Two trials resulting in a hung jury followed by a third trial which lead to an acquittal for the murder of two New York Police Officers, which leads to yet another murder in 1984. A conviction and sentence of 107 years in prison for that murder then leads to a parole in 2009, and somehow our justice system is broken but only because it is biased and unfair to the criminals.

To you sir and the several other brave men who sacrificed and left their families far too soon and far too young, we say THANK YOU, and know that you will never, ever be forgotten. Your assailants will surely face a higher court and form of justice at a later time in a different place. Rest in peace always!!!

My dearest brother Christie, in a couple of weeks it’ll be 42 years since you’ve been gone. The pain is still here. I hope my treasured memories of you deep within my heart. I always feel your presence with me, but I’m selfish… I wish you were here. I loved you then, I love you now, and will love you until we meet again. Always and forever Maria.
