Contrary to the headline screaming.....A KILLER IS BACK IN CUSTODY

Joseph Yandle did indeed falsify service in Vietnam and used it as a cornerstone in a petition for commutation. He was the getaway driver whose partner shot and killed a man in an armed robbery.......he was not the shooter, another fact considered in his commutation. The truth was revealed 3 years later and his parole was revoked. He has been paroled and revoked twice since then, in the full knowledge that he was not a Vietnam Vet, with his latest parole granted in December 2014.

Joseph Labriola was sentenced as the shooter in a murder. He also granted himself parole by escaping from prison and stayed on the lam for 93 days before being recaptured and returned. He told a reporter from the Boston Globe as recently as 4 years ago that, if given the opportunity, he would escape again. Hardly an ideal candidate.

A reminder to everyone in this conversation that we don't allow personal attacks. Please try to keep your remarks civil, and comment on the ideas presented by others rather than attacking the people presenting those ideas.

Future comments from anyone on this thread that attack individuals rather than ideas or actions will be removed.

You have said some pretty distasteful things in your blogs but to state that because he was "trained by his country to be a killer" we shouldn't be surprised that he murdered someone has got to be as low as you can get.

This is deeply disrespectful to the many, many thousands who have since served and were also "trained by their country to be killers" but have not subsequently slaughtered anyone.
