Rockland County Executive Ed Day, a former detective commander in the New York Police Department and past chief of detectives for the Baltimore Police Department, strongly criticized the decision to commute the sentence of one participants in the 1981 Brinks robbery that killed two Nyack police officers and a guard.
“Commutation of Judith Clark’s sentence is a vicious slap in the face to every member of law enforcement, the victim’s families and every person who was touched by the brutal and cowardly 1981 Brinks robbery in Rockland County that she chose to take part in.
“Two Nyack police officers and a Brinks guard were killed that day. Their blood has been on Judith Clark’s hands for the last 35 years. The blood of Nyack police Sgt. Edward O’Grady, Officer Waverly ‘Chipper’ Brown and Brinks guard Peter Paige will be on her hands until the day she dies.
“Edward O’Grady, Waverly Brown and Peter Paige never got a second chance. She does not deserve a second chance.”
Judith Clark is a domestic terrorist. Her only place in a civilized society is behind bars.”
