ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-- St. Louis Police officer Johnnie Corbin was murdered in 1985 over a $4 parking ticket.   The Missouri Department of Corrections confirms the killer, Willie Taylor, will have a parole hearing later this month.

"I don`t think that this savage murderer has paid his debt to society," said Jeff Roorda, St. Louis Police Officers Association Business Manager.  "I think he ought to stay behind bars for the rest of his life."

Corbin wrote a ticket on Taylor`s car for parking in a street sweeping area.  A few minutes later, Taylor drove his car at a high rate of speed and crashed into Corbin`s three-wheeled police motorcycle.  Corbin was thrown from his vehicle.  Taylor got out of his car and started kicking the dying officer in the middle of the street.

"When you take a person`s life, you owe a debt to society," said Roorda.   "When you take a police officer`s life, I think that debt is even greater."

Roorda said officers are sending letters to the prole board asking parole be denied.  They are sending those letters to this address:

Board of Probation and Parole
3400 Knipp Dr.
Jefferson City, MO 65109

    Love how bye bye defends a convicted cop killer, and implies that all cops writing tickets are his feeble mind, a parking ticket is justifiable for taking a life, but not self defense..Bye bye and the liberals LOVE cop killers and put them in our colleges to teach and obama gives them cushy jobs..Zimmerman, who should be president of the NAACP,was found not guilty, period..Bye Bye can’ fathom that..he’s too busy spewing hate about police and military..he probably spit on our troops coming home from Nam..the only difference between bye bye and hanoi jane is she is more of a man…

    Better arm yourselves white Ameikans. War has been decreed upon you by savage blacks and a communist government in tandem.As always, maintain a situational awareness such as maintaining a perimeter of defense around your domiciles. When in public always scan for the melanin-enriched Afro’s at all times. Keep a personal defense weapon at the ready. Keep yourselves in good physical condition, good spiritual condition, and never take anything for granted. Always keep a skeptical mind when blacks try and befriend you. Look for ulterior motives and move your families away from areas that have diversity. Teach your children to be polite but cautious at all times.Use your head and live.

    How many people are killed by cops every day in this country? My heart doesn’t bleed for this cop. ANY lost of life is bad yet killing a “cop” is held at a higher standard. Just because you have a badge and a gun doesn’t make you any less likely to be a Murderer, Pedophile, Thief, Racist ect. ect.!! The good thing is is that God is the final judge and his Will be done!
