No Parole for Cop Killers - Action needed!Help stop the parole of the killer of:
Lieutenant Robert Manuel Cabral
Swansea Police Department, Massachusetts
End of Watch: Saturday, November 5, 2005
I'm posting to ask as many of you as possible to take a few moments of your time to send letters to the Massachusetts State Parole Board, requesting the parole of Wayne Smith (inmate #W90156) be denied. Smith is eligible for parole at the end of April. Although he killed Lt. Bob Cabral (Swansea PD) on November 5, 2005, Smith was not sentenced until June 26, 2007. Records show Smith had a BAC of 0.27% that night he drove his dark suv, headlights off, around the curve and head-on into Bob's police cruiser. Yet, Smith had the audacity to plead not guilty until 2007. At the sentencing, Smith's adult daughter begged the court for leniency, saying it was so painful to see her father behind bars. As I sat in that courtroom, in between Bob's two amazing boys, it took everything I had to not stand up and yell, "Try having coffee with a tombstone and let me know how that works for you!" I can assure you that the hole in my heart will never be filled. Nothing will bring Bob back, but Wayne Smith certainly does not deserve freedom!!
Here's the link to the ODMP website that has a form letter you can print out as is, or modify, if you desire, before printing: No Parole for Cop Killers
Thank you all!

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

I'd like to thank those of you who took the time to send those letters out; you really do make a difference! He will be up for parole again next April, so there will be another round of letters needed next year. He needs to stay in for his full term.
