On October 27, 1967, two Northlake police officers were killed by bank robbers who were holding up the Northlake Bank. The killers were apprehended, tried and convicted.
One of the perpetrators has since died, another, anothers release is pending a final parole hearing, and a third, Ronald del Raine, sentenced to 209 years, has a parole hearing in October 2012. He is the last living offender of this heinous crime and does not deserve to be paroled.
The United States Parole commission made a decision to grant parole on January 6, 2010 for Ronald del Raine's accomplice Henry Gargano with a tentative release date of September or October 2010. The United States Parole commission made this decision without notification to the families of the slain officers or to the Northlake Police Department.
We CANNOT have have two cop killers roaming the streets and compromising officer or public safety in any capacity.
On April 19, 2010, the City Council passed a resolution condemning the action by the parole commission, and to honor the memories of Sergeant Nagle and Officer Perri and will seek to have the decision stayed or reversed.
The Northlake Police Department will be contacting the officers families and others to write victim impact letters to the parole commission as well as undertaking petitions and other measures to seek a reversal of this decision by the parole commission."
