No Parole for Ex-Militant who Killed NY Officers


A former member of a black militant group convicted of the 1971 killings of two New York City police officers has been denied parole for the sixth time, the Associated Press reported. The state Parole Board announced Tuesday that Herman Bell, the 66-year-old Black Liberation Army member, will remain incarcerated for at least another two years before he may again appear before the board. The parole request was the first since he admitted his role in the killings.
