Man shot an officer in the head, now he’s being released for a second time


A New York man convicted of shooting a Rochester Police Officer is free to walk the streets for a second time.

25-year-old Tyquan Rivera was released on Tuesday after serving his maximum incarceration time for his crime at the Cape Vincent Correctional Facility.

Rivera was only 14 when he shot RPD Officer Anthony DiPonzio in 2009, earning himself only 3.5-10 years in prison due to his “youthful offender” status.

According to 13WHAM, Rivera was technically released on parole in 2016, but violated his parole in multiple ways and was tossed back in jail after a few months.

  1. Why was he not given the death penalty since he knew full well what he was doing. Oh that’s right he is in a Sanctuary city. Criminals mean more than police.
