The state parole officer for cop-killer Dominic Cinelli and her supervisor have both been reinstated - with full back pay - after an arbitrator found the Patrick administration fired them without just cause, the Herald has learned.Parole officer Stephanie Belli and field supervisor John O'Connor were both fired in 2011 after refusing to sign the prepared letters of resignation they were handed during meetings with an unnamed undersecretary in the Executive Office of Public Safety."It is obvious that the undersecretary had no interest in what the grievants had to say," wrote arbitrator Marc Greenbaum. "Her so-called interview was perfunctory, to say the least. That she came armed with prepared letters of resignation for each of them and prepared notices of discipline if they did not resign demonstrates her state of mind. Their fate was decided before they walked in, and nothing they could have said would have produced a different result."State police even stripped Belli and O'Connor of their badges and firearms before their meeting with the undersecretary, Greenbaum wrote.Belli, who earned $79,096 in 2010, and O'Connor, whose earnings were $93,682 that year, according to Herald payroll records, are both entitled to full back pay and retroactive seniority, though both their attorney and state officials declined to say how much."They are grateful to be back at their jobs," said their attorney Alan Shapiro. -

Patrick administration fired them without "just cause"?

Jack Maguire ring any bells? I'd call their termination just. They let a killer out on the street, and look what happens. Unreal.
The parole officer and supervisor didn't let him out. The Parole Board did. These PO's were handed a shit sandwich and then made the scape goats for it.
