Raymond Louis George (b. 1952 - ?), cop killer

Unread post by alexalonso » August 29th, 2016, 2:30 am

Raymond Louis George was convicted in 1975 of 2 attempted murders and 2nd degree murder of a police officer. He was sentenced to 25-years in prison but only served 9-year sentence and the police in LA was monitoring him when he was released from prison in 1984. Since he killed a cop, and was a militant, they beleived that he might kill another cop.

It does not appear that his crimes were connected to any gang activity.

1989 LA Times article on George after getting out of prison again.
Police Killer Paroled for 2nd Time, Will Live in N. Hollywood
January 19, 1989|CLAUDIA PUIG | Times Staff Writer

A Los Angeles man whose criminal record includes convictions for killing one policeman, assaulting several others and attacking a college student with a machete was paroled Wednesday--for the second time in five years.

Raymond Louis George, 36, was paroled to a North Hollywood neighborhood Wednesday from California Men's Colony in San Luis Obispo after serving nearly three years of a four-year sentence on a weapons possession conviction, Associate Warden Gail Lewis said.

George will live in an apartment in the 11800 block of Vanowen Street, parole officials said. He is on medication for a psychiatric condition, they said.

George was originally paroled in 1984 after serving nine years of his sentence of 22 1/2 years to life for the murder and assaults. He was arrested on the weapons charge in 1985, three months after his parole had expired.

'Not a Lot We Can Do'

Corrections officials said Wednesday they had no choice about releasing George again. "There's not a lot we can do about it," said Karen Bowles, an assistant regional administrator at the Department of Corrections.

Under a 1977 state law, all convicts who are not serving life sentences are entitled to parole under a formula that gives them credit for good behavior and work at prison jobs. Before that law was approved, all prisoners had to go before a parole board.

"That's the failure of the court system, not the Department of Corrections," Bowles said. "It's not that we don't care, it's just that we're handcuffed."

Neither George nor his attorney could be reached for comment.

A one-time fish salesman for the Black Muslim religious sect, George was originally convicted of second-degree murder for the Oct. 21, 1974, killing of David Jack, 21, a state police officer who was guarding the former Serra State Building in downtown Los Angeles.

Woman Disabled

He was also convicted of attempting to murder two Los Angeles police officers, assaulting two Los Angeles County deputy sheriffs and an attack on a 19-year-old Occidental College student that left the woman permanently disabled. Those attacks occurred between July 14, 1974, and October 6, 1974.

His 1984 parole drew sharp criticism from law enforcement officials, who predicted that George would soon be back behind bars.

Two years later, he was. George was convicted of carrying a knife inside his pant leg and was sentenced on March 3, 1986, by Torrance Superior Court Judge William C. Beverly.

Beverly refused to comment Wednesday. But a parole official said Wednesday that George was given a relatively tough four-year sentence because of his criminal record.

Officials Doubtful

Law enforcement officials expressed doubts Wednesday about the parole. "We will probably hear from George again," said Los Angeles Police Cmdr. William Booth. "Hopefully not, but we probably will.

"Our history with people who engage in that type of violence is that they don't control themselves and that's the hazard we run when they're put back in society," he said.

George was convicted of killing 21 year old Officer David Jack in 1974 at the front desk of the State Police building.


David A. Jack 1974
State Police Officer Shot and Killed

Monday, October 21, 1974

State Police Officer David A. Jack was assigned to patrol the Los Angeles Dispatch Center and was on the first watch when his body was discovered in an office doorway. Jacks service revolver was still in his holster and he had apparently been ambushed by a gunman who shot the State Police officer once in the temple. Officer Jack was rushed to the hospital, but died just hours later. The 21-year-old State Police officer has been appointed to the State Police service only seven months earlier. The killer was later apprehended and charged with the murder of Officer Jack.
