ASTATE parole officer and two of his bosses were fired Friday for their botched supervision of Rafael Jones, a career criminal who allegedly murdered a veteran Philly cop.
Authorities have said that Jones, 23, and an accomplice, Chancier McFarland, 19, stalked and gunned down Officer Moses Walker Jr. in North Philly on Aug. 18 during a botched robbery attempt.
The question of why Jones - who failed a drug test about a week before Walker's slaying - was still on the street soon took center stage.
On Aug. 30, Gov. Corbett ordered the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole to conduct an internal investigation to determine if any employee errors or policy failures had occurred.
