Apparently, freeing cop-killers has become a thing for the New York State Board of Parole.
Darryl Jeter shot and killed New York City cop Irma Lozada with her own gun in 1984. The murder made the 25-year-old Lozada the first female New York City police officer to die in the line of duty.
Lozada, who was working as a plainclothes cop for Transit District 33, watching for jewelry snatchers, WPIX-TV said, was with her police partner when they saw Jeter, who was on parole from a 1983 attempted robbery conviction, snagging a necklace from someone’s neck on the train in Brooklyn. The two cops gave chase and got separated. Lozada caught up with the thief alone, and during a subsequent struggle, Jeter took her gun and shot her twice in the head.
