Esteemed Members of the Parole Board,

I am writing this letter to express my strong opposition to the release of Fred Yazdi, who was
convicted of murder in the early morning hours of February 3, 2012. As a concerned citizen,
I urge you to deny his parole and keep him in prison for the remainder of his sentence.

The circumstances of Mr. Yazdi's crime are deeply disturbing. Mr. Yazdi claimed that he
believed Mr. Recio was attempting to burglarize his home, but there was no evidence to
support his claim. The police found no signs of forced entry Mr. Recio was not armed.

Furthermore, Mr. Yazdi's actions after the shooting demonstrate a complete lack of remorse.
He did not call the police before his actions or attempt to render aid to Mr. Recio. Instead,
he calmly stood in his yard, holding his gun, and waited for the police to arrive. He even
told the officers that he did not want Mr. Recio to escape and shot him as he was
running away.

Mr. Yazdi's actions were not those of a responsible and law-abiding citizen. He took the law
into his own hands and ended the life of another human being without just cause.
This behavior demonstrates a serious disregard for the value of human life and a failure to
understand the gravity of his actions.

I urge you to consider the seriousness of Mr. Yazdi's crime and the impact it has had on the
victim's family and friends. Please deny his parole and ensure that he remains behind bars
for the remainder of his sentence. It is the only way to ensure that justice is served and that
the public is protected from further harm.

On behalf of Enrique Recio III, his grieving family, and our community I respectfully urge
the Board to DENY Fred Yazdi's parole and offset the next parole review for as long as
the law allows.

Thank you for your consideration

Respectfully Submitted,





Another way would be for you to send me your info
And I will fill out the form for you

You can do both, write a Letter and Sign the Petition.
