Hopefully this victory will not be short lived as Lopez has appealed his parole denial.
It’s more than ironic, some might say tragic, that as our country “celebrated” the demise of one terror leader this week, our family (also a 9/11 family) and the other FALN victims are once again slapped in the face and forced to deal with the insult and pain of keeping another terror leader in prison.
Oscar Lopez founded and lead the Puerto Rican terror group FALN who proudly claimed the murder of our father, Frank Connor, when they blew up Fraunces Tavern; only blocks from where his godson, Steve Schlag, was murdered at the World Trade Center on 9/11.
Monday, while I was reading about our fantastic Navy Seals bringing justice to Bin Laden, I received an email from the parole commission informing us that FALN terror leader Lopez’s appeal would be reviewed by the parole commissioners next Tuesday, May 10, 2011 with a decision made within days.
After taking down one terror founder and leader, how can the Federal Government even consider releasing another?
Please once again, and hopefully, for the last time, join with our families and respectfully demand the parole commission affirm their original decision, deny parole and ensure the unrepentant terrorist Lopez completes his sentence.
Attached is additional background as well as contact information for the parole commission, the commission’s telephone number and a form letter to the commission requesting they deny Lopez’s appeal.
If you agree that Lopez should not be paroled, please urgently complete, sign and fax the letter or call the parole commission.
Remember we have only a few days left to make sure that our great take down of Bin Laden is not compromised by the release of another terror leader sworn to our destruction.
