PAROLE ALERT: Cop Killer David Smith

PAROLE DENIAL LETTER

I ask that you DENY PAROLE to David Smith, inmate #82471. This inmate's violent murder of Sergeant Rickey Simmons, of the Jackson Police Department, in 1992 should preclude any consideration for parole.

Sergeant Simmons was devoted to helping people and saving lives, but he was brutally attacked and murdered with his own service weapon while attempting to keep the citizens of Jackson safe.

Violence against law enforcement officers is on the rise and many officers have lost their lives to parolees. Inmates who have taken the life of an officer should be subject to serve their full sentence, without any possibility of parole. 

Should he be released, inmate #82471 would pose a clear and present danger to all citizens and law enforcement officers in Mississippi. It is imperative that he be kept behind bars for his full and complete sentence.
