The Los Angeles Police Protective League vehemently opposes the release of Voltaire Williams, who was involved in the brutal ambush assassination of LAPD Detective Thomas Williams. The murder occurred on Halloween in 1985 in a spray of gunfire just as Det. Williams was picking up his young son from his son’s daycare center.
Det. Williams had arrested Daniel Jenkins, an associate of Voltaire Williams and had testified in his robbery trial. In a desperate attempt to sabotage the trial and to get revenge against the detective for his part in the prosecution, Voltaire Williams, Daniel Jenkins and the triggerman conspired to kill Det. Thomas Williams. Voltaire Williams has never expressed remorse for his role in the murder.
Now, Det. Williams’ two adult children and widow, along with the Los Angeles Police Protective League, are emphatically protesting the release of Voltaire Williams. We urge you to keep this brutal killer behind bars for the public good.
Voltaire Williams is scheduled to have a parole hearing on February 5, 2014*, at Solano State Prison, where he should remain for the rest of his life.
Please take the time to send a letter to the Parole Board expressing your opposition to his possible parole. You can read the letter the Police Protective League sent HERE . Please mail all letters to:
