Protect Law Enforcement By Reinstating the Death Penalty for Cop Killers

In 2004, the New York Court of Appeals ruled (in the People v LaValle) that the procedure for imposing the death penalty was flawed. As a result, prosecutors have been unable to seek the death penalty when a law enforcement officer is murdered while performing his duties. Since the LaValle ruling, there have been 8 police officers in New York intentionally murdered, 7 of which have occurred after this legislation enacted a sentence of life without parole for those who kill law enforcement officers. It is clear that a deterrence is needed to address this trend of aggression toward those men and women who put their lives at risk while protecting the citizens of this state.

Please sign the petition below to protect our law enforcement.
