Ollie Tate is up for parole ... again!
Society does not need the would-be cop killer walking among us, so you know what we need to do
In September 2011, I posted an article letting you know that Ollie Tate — who had attempted to murder Ohio police officer Tony Luketic (as well as Luketic’s mom!) in November 1995 — was being considered for parole.
Due in large measure to the overwhelming pressure from concerned local citizens, the persistent hard work of the Luketic family, and the efforts of PoliceOne Members, Tate was denied parole.
Well, friends, Ollie Tate is coming up for parole again in January 2014. I’ve learned that there will be a meeting of the parole board on December 17. Below are instructions on how to make your opinion on this matter known to the parole board. First, though, we should briefly reflect on why this issue is so important.
Tate shot Luketic in the leg and shot Luketic’s 51-year-old mom in the stomach. The struggle continued. Tate shoved the gun into Luketic’s armpit and fired, leaving Luketic totally disabled, his arm held on only by his sweatshirt and leather coat.
Tate then stood over Officer Luketic, put the gun to the officer’s head, and pulled the trigger.
The five-shot revolver was empty.
I have not a shred of doubt that Tate would have executed Tony Luketic, and as many others as he could have that day, were it not for the fact that this cold-blooded would-be cop killer had run out of ammunition.
Society does not need Ollie Tate walking around among innocents, so you know what we need to do. Here are your instructions.
Your Marching Orders
There are some hoops to jump through — it seems that parole boards are making it increasingly difficult to oppose an inmate’s parole — but I’m confident you’ll navigate these obstacles with ease.
1.) Your letter must include the name Ollie Tate and his inmate # A321120 — I recommend writing your draft in Word or some similar word processing program
Please be advised that it is absolutely essential that you use the link for the parole board as well as the email for the victim services and the Gmail address (step 4) that’s been set up to collect all these emails. It is equally critical that your email include the name Ollie Tate and Inmate #A321120.
If you chose to physically write a letter, the address for the parole board is:
Ohio Parole Board
If you want to write a letter to victim services, the address for that department is:
Office of Victim Services
Thanks, my friends. Stay safe out there.
