David Gilbert, Brink’s Getaway Driver Granted Parole

Published

on

Breaking News: David Gilbert, one of the last of the Brinks defendants in state prison, has been granted parole, according to the state Board of Parole.

Gilbert, who was the getaway driver was serving 75 years to life for taking part in the robbery and shootout at the Nanuet Mall in 1981, which killed Nyack Sgt. Edward O’Grady, Nyack Police Officer Waverly Brown and Brinks Guard Peter Paige.

The Parole Board’s decision means Gilbert will be released from an upstate prison no later than Nov. 30.

The Brink’s Robbery, 40 years ago forever changed Rockland County. We quote Diane O’Grady, the widow of Nyack Sgt. Edward O’Grady, “San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin says he can’t wait to hug his father, my son too would like his father, but he will never have that opportunity.”

A truly tragic day for the county of Rockland. We will never forget Nyack Sgt. Edward O’Grady, Nyack Police Officer Waverly Brown and Brinks Guard Peter Paige.

 

REACTIONS

Ed Day

Today’s ruling by the New York State Parole Board is a cruel and unjust slap in the face to the families of Sergeant Edward O’Grady, Officer Waverly “Chipper” Brown and Brinks guard Peter Paige as well as the people of Rockland County. Especially given the fact that only days ago Rockland held our annual ceremony commemorating the lives of those that David Gilbert was convicted of killing 40 years ago.

Former Governor Andrew Cuomo and the Parole Board should be ashamed for allowing this domestic terrorist to walk free on our streets. There’s no reason that David Gilbert should not have to face the full consequences of his heinous crimes, no matter how much time has passed.

Assemblyman Mike Lawler

“Not even one week after the 40th Anniversary of the Brink’s Robbery, the New York State Parole Board decided to grant parole to Domestic Terrorist and cop-killer David Gilbert. It’s an absolute abomination and an unforgivable slap in the face to law enforcement and the families of Edward O’Grady, Waverly Brown, and Peter Paige.
“Tina Stanford and the entire Parole Board should resign immediately in disgrace. It’s emphatically clear that they no longer care about the families of crime victims, and are more concerned about being ‘woke’ and doing the bidding of the progressive Democrats destroying our state. Shame on them, shame on disgraced former Governor Cuomo for commuting Gilbert’s sentence, and shame on the unabashed San Francisco District Attorney whose ‘advocacy’ has led to this.
“David Gilbert was part of a terrorist group that assassinated 2 police officers and a Brink’s security guard in one of the most heinous domestic terror attacks in New York State. He belongs in jail for the rest of his life.
“My heart breaks for the families and our community.
“In the coming weeks, I will be introducing legislation to change the makeup of the Parole Board, limit the powers of the Governor, and ensure that cop-killers remain in prison, where they belong, for the rest of their lives. It is my hope that New Yorkers react accordingly and vote these ‘woke’ politicians out of office next November — it is the only way to stop this insanity.”
