Deval makes the right call in Parole Board disaster

Gov. Deval Patrick said Thursday that he has accepted the resignations of the five members of the state parole board who voted to release a career criminal who authorities said later killed a Woburn police officer in a shootout.

Patrick also accepted the resignation of the executive director of the board and said he would seek to remove other officials from the agency.

The killing of a police officer at the hands of a paroled lifer is what it took...
to make change.
