STATEMENT OF COUNTY EXECUTIVE ED DAY: NO CLEMENCY FOR BRINKS KILLER JUDITH CLARK

To overturn the jury's decision now would be a cruel and unjust slap in the face to the families of Sergeant Edward O'Grady, Officer Waverly "Chipper" Brown and Brinks guard Peter Paige. Nine children were left without fathers in the wake of this brutal and morally reprehensible crime.  The conduct of Judith Clark - and her fellow radicals - was so abhorrent, it simply warrants the imposition of life in prison to ensure that justice is served and society is protected. As a member of law enforcement at the time of this incident, I strongly believe Clark deserves the same sentence she inflicted on her victims.  I commend District Attorney Zugibe for his efforts to fight clemency for this cold-blooded killer.
