  • Received from the President of Genesee Valley COPS

    I have been made aware of an upcoming Parole Hearing:

    John Ruzas, who was convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to 25 years of life in the slaying of New York State Trooper Emerson Dillon (EOW: 10/24/74), is scheduled for a parole hearing during the week of November 14, 2011.

    Our help is needed to ensure Ruzas is denied parole and kept in prison, where he belongs.

    Trooper Dillon, a 16-year veteran of the State Police, initiated a traffic stop along the Thruway, unaware the occupants of the vehicle were fleeing a jewelry store robbery. One of the passengers, Ruzas, shot Trooper Dillon in the left side of his heart, killing him. When Ruzas murdered Trooper Dillon, he was already on parole from Attica for his role in two robberies in New York City.

    A husband and father of six, Trooper Dillon loved being a New York State Trooper. He acted bravely and heroically until the end, as he was able to fire two return shots as he backpedaled across four lanes of highway to try to reach safety. One of the shots struck the vehicle he had stopped.

    The NYSP PBA has been in contact with the Dillon family, and they are of course strongly opposed to parole for this murderer. They have ensured that the Dillon family is in contact with the Division of Parole to have their voices heard.

    To send a letter of opposition to the Board of Parole, please visit its web site by clicking on the following link:
    https://www.parole.state.ny.us/boardletters/forminput.jsp

    After you fill in your personal information, you will see fields for "Din," "Inmate Name" and "Subject of Your Email." Here is what you will type in:

    Din: 75C0385 (it's a "zero" after the "C")
    Inmate Last Name: Ruzas
    Inmate First Name: John
    Subject of Your Email: Letter of Opposition

    Then, in the "Comments" box, should you wish you can cut and paste the following letter (enter whether you are a survivor or LEO) or you can write your own comments or leave it blank, whatever you feel comfortable with:

    As a survivor of a fallen Law Enforcement Officer/ Law Enforcement Officer (whatever role fits you), I oppose the parole of John Ruzas, who was convicted of second-degree murder in the Oct. 24, 1974 slaying of State Trooper Emerson J. Dillon. Trooper Dillon was shot fatally in the heart by Ruzas while conducting a traffic stop. When Ruzas murdered Trooper Dillon, he was on parole from Attica for his role in two robberies. Ruzas has no respect for the criminal justice system or the law enforcement officers who put their lives on the line to protect the public. The tragedy of the death of a State Trooper, husband, father, brother, and son would be compounded by the release of Ruzas.

    Since the hearing date is not finalized yet and we want to ensure any delays within the parole system are mitigated, we are imploring you to take the following action IMMEDIATELY.

    Please take the time to take action on this important endeavor!

    Thank you to all who help keep this cop killer in prison. Please continue to keep Trooper Dillon, his family and co workers in your thoughts and prayers.

    I sent an e-mail to the parole board, asking this man be kept behind bars. I hope others will do the same.
