Video: Parole board offers sympathy for slain cop

After releasing a man who went on to kill a cop, the parole board is now offering sympathy to the officer’s family


By PoliceOne Staff

WOBURN, Mass. — The chairman of the parole board that released the man who killed a Mass. officer last week made his first statement, offering sympathy to the officer’s family.

Dominic Cinelli, 57, was released in 2008, after a unanimous vote by the board. He was serving three life sentences at the time. On Dec. 26, he held up a Mass. jewelry counter and shot veteran police officer John Maguire.

A full report from the board is forthcoming, but the chairman’s statement can be heard in the video to the right.
