A gang ordered murder of a cop in retaliation for an alleged assault of an elderly black man on a bus, the subsequent murder of an alleged informant, a community afraid to serve on the jury, even defendents afraid to testify concerned the police wouldn't be able to protect them from the Vice Lords and their leader Sharif Willis - who was implicated in Jerry's murder but never indicted.​​
This is the Jerry Haaf Story from 1992 coming in October.  Fast forward 30 years, one of Jerry's killers is up for parole in November. Jerry was 53 years old, had served for 30 years in Minneapolis, and was only months away from retirement. His family was sentenced to life without their beloved husband, father, and grandfather - they believe his killers should get no less time.  Jerry's family needs your help to keep this cop killer in prison where he belongs.
You can help Jerry's family now by sending a letter to the MN DOC to deny this cop killer's parole request in November.  Click this link for more info on how you can help the Haaf Family:
