huh? you know what? we’ve got to change the entire mind-set for how we begin to fill the positions for jobs like Parole Officers — mine had such a deviant mind, I can just imagine what its like in New Jersey!
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey’s parole board has filed in court to stop the release of a man convicted of killing a state trooper more than 40 years ago.
A two-member panel of the state parole board denied Sundiata Acoli’s parole in 2011, but an appeals court reversed the ruling last month and ordered Acoli released.
Acoli, then known as Clark Edward Squire, was convicted of the 1973 slaying of Trooper Werner Foerster during a stop on the New Jersey Turnpike.
One of Squire’s accomplices was Joanne Chesimard, who also was convicted but escaped to Cuba and has been living under the name Assata Shakur.
In a court filing this week, the parole board asks for a delay of Acoli’s release while the full board reconsiders the decision.
