First of all, to the families and Police Departments of Officers Sean Gannon and Ronald Tarentino, Jr., my deepest sympathy, thoughts, prayers and encouragement. Judges’ low bail issues has been a driven cause of mine. Like you, allowing these violent repeat offenders back out on our streets and neighborhoods to continue to perpetuate harm, mayhem and murder is just unacceptable and must stop – two ‘sentinels of peace’ are now dead. I have filed legislation with District Attorney Anthony Gulluni through lead sponsor State Representative Angelo J. Puppolo, Jr. that can and will combat these tragic situations. Unfortunately, it does not seem to move out of Committee. These tragic incidents cry out for this legislation to finally be moved, but more importantly, adopted. Please if you deem fit, maybe we can all get behind and lobby our state legislature to get it done, so that other families do not have to go through this again. May God rest their souls.
