Croatian Terrorist Granted Parole
Unfortunately, Busic is now a free man in his native Croatia.
The fighter, Zvonko Busic, led a group that planted a bomb at Grand Central Terminal that later exploded, killing a city police officer, Brian J. Murray. Mr. Busic left the Federal Correctional Complex in Terre Haute, Ind., boarded a plane in Chicago and touched down in Zagreb about 2:20 p.m. on Thursday, officials said.
The news last week that he had been granted parole on his life sentence after serving about 31 years upset Officer Murray’s widow, Kathleen. It also outraged Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly, a personal friend of one of the three other officers wounded when the bomb planted at Grand Central — fashioned from dynamite placed inside a two-quart cast-iron cooking pot — exploded at the bomb squad’s demolition range in the Bronx.
Terence G. McTigue, a retired police lieutenant who was blinded in the left eye and lost two fingers of his left hand in the blast, in addition to suffering hearing loss and facial disfigurement, said he was shocked by the developments.
“It’s unbelievable,” Mr. McTigue, a sergeant in the bomb squad in 1976, said in a phone interview while traveling in Honolulu. “I am devastated that we have not had a chance, after all these years, to have one more session for the victims to appeal to some sense of justice.”
Whoever the idiots are that paroled this monster should lose their jobs. And I have no sympathy whatsoever for Croatian “independence fighters.” This was a country that allied itself with the Nazis during WWII. In fact the concentration camp Jasenovac was built in Croatia by Croatian Ustases to kill off Serbs and Jews. In fact the atrocities of these beasts was too much even for the nazis.
