The convicted murderer of a Salamanca woman has been released from prison, but has not been released in Western New York.
The New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision said Edward Kindt, who was convicted for raping and murdering Penny Brown in Salamanca in 1999 when he was 15 years old, was released from prison Thursday and taken to Dutchess County.
It’s not clear if he’ll face parole-related restrictions. Kindt, who is Seneca, was recently banned from all Seneca Nation territories for at least a year.
Kindt, who is now 39, was granted parole on February 17 after being denied multiple times in the past. He was originally sentenced to nine years to life in prison until former State Senator Cathy Young helped pass Penny’s Law, which increased the second-degree murder sentence for someone under 16 years old to 15 years to life.
State Senator George Borrello released a statement, saying, “In a call this morning with the Department of Correction and Community Supervision (DOCCS) Acting Commissioner Anthony Annucci, I learned that killer Edward Kindt has been released on parole to an undisclosed location in Duchess County. While I am glad he has not been released into the community where he caused so much pain, this sexual predator and murderer remains a threat to the safety of all New Yorkers and should be spending the rest of his natural life behind bars. ”
Borrello added that he believes Governor Kathy Hochul should replace State Parole Board members with members “who will choose public safety over politics.”
It’s about time someone came to their senses. Politicians only care about them selves. It’s been that way for years. If Americans would get their heads out of their butts and start working together. Us citizens should be able to vote if a convicted murderer/rapest should be released. How about these high class politicians donating their $40,000 worth of office furniture money to the victims families. Show people how America should look out for each other instead of trying to put people further and further in debt. Humanity and pride was our country at one time it’s gone since Kennedy’s been killed.

The woke left liberal insane Criminal Loving Parole Board members should be called out. Let them live on the same street as this animal. Now they dump this monster in unsuspecting Dutchess County. How about for once caring about the victims. You take a life… YOU GET LIFE !!!
