My suggestion to him is to do what another alleged "cop killer" did in New York in the early 1960s. His name was Jerry Rosenberg, a.k.a "Jerry the Jew," who became well known later during the Attica rebellion. At the time of his crime, he was a young man, a driver in a robbery that turned violent resulting in the death of two police officers. There was a huge manhunt out to get him. It was a headline story in all the tabloids. He claimed he shot no one and turned himself into the Daily News newsroom in New York, after he stripped naked and had pictures taken to show he had not been beaten. He used the media to survive certain capture and probably execution.
Armed police surrounded the building. Threats were made. But the newspaper turned him over in the glare of publicity, and he was not killed or brutalized. He was, however, later convicted on a felony murder charge that held that if he took part in the robbery, he could be held accountable for what happened there. He was sentenced to death but the sentence was later reduced to life imprisonment. He later became a well-known prison lawyer and died of natural causes in 2009 after serving 46 years in state prisons.
Stay tuned. There is more to come in this escapade of life imitating the movies. And speaking of movies, what California studio will get the movie rights? Has reality finally outdone the big screen?
