Help Keep Cop Killers in Jail!

Back in May of this year, I asked for your assistance in making sure one of the murderers of Police Officer Sean McDonald remained in in jail. Your emails and letters to the parole board helped that happen. THANK YOU! In July, his family was notified by the parole board that Javier Miranda was denied parole. The family will have to endure this every year as Sean’s murderer’s come up for parole.

I am asking for your help again. The family of Police Officer Joseph Piagentini has asked for our help in making sure one of his murderers is not released this year. In May of 1971, Police Officers Joseph Piagentini and Waverly Jones were assassinated in a premeditated ambush. The officers were lured to the scene by a phony 911 call of a disturbance. The three armed assassins, Anthony Bottom, Herman Bell, and Albert Washington, laid in wait. Officer Waverly was killed instantly when he was shot in the back of the head. Officer Piagentini was shot with .38 caliber and .45 caliber gunfire. He was critically wounded, and as he lay on the ground, he plead for his life and told his attackers he had two small children at home. His attackers took the officers service weapon and continuously shot him with it. Officer Piagentini was shot 13 times by his killers.

Premeditated murderers and Cop Killers should never be paroled. Help us keep Anthony Bottom in jail, where he belongs. Hand written letters can be sent to:

Sullivan Correctional Facility

PO Box 116

Fallsburg, New York 12733-0116

Attention: Parole SORC

Or you can go to NYCPBA.ORG site, click on Keep Cop Killers in Jail, go to Officers Piagentini and Waverly’s names, and Anthony Bottom’s name will be across from them. You can generate your letter to the parole board from there. Thank you for your support and assistance.
