A Long Island widow of a police officer is asking for her husband’s killer to be kept behind bars.
The former Black Panther, Anthony Bottom, has been locked up for nearly 50 years for the 1971 murders of NYPD officers Joseph Piagentini and Waverly Jones.

News 12 is told Bottom is now up for parole for the 11th time.
Joseph Piagentini’s wife, Diane Piagentini, says Bottom should never get out of jail.
The New York Post says Piagentini will also speak directly to the State Parole Board.
