Parole Board:


On August 14th 1980, Paul Ford, Barrington Young, and Cornelius Bucknor killed 43 year old New York City Police Officer Harry R. Ryman.  Harry was a loving husband and devoted father of five children.  Harry Served the United States Navy for 8 years and then served 17 years as a NYC Police Officer.


On the tragic morning of August 14th 1980, Police Officer Ryman was off duty when he observed three individuals attempting to steal a car.  After identifying himself as a Police Officer, he was fired upon and was mortally wounded.


Harry and his family have paid the ultimate sacrifice for this city.  Both Barrington Young and Paul Ford are up for parole in October, 2006 and Cornelius Bucknor is up for parole in April of 2008.  Please do not let these COP KILLERS out of prison.  Please give Harry’s family and friend’s peace of mind knowing that Harry’s killers remain behind bars where they belong. 


The undersigned petitions members of the Board to deny parole for Paul Ford, Barrington Young, and Cornelius Bucknor.
