The man convicted of killing Minneapolis Police Officer Richard Miller in 1981 has been released from jail and sent to a halfway house as part of a work-release program.

Isaac Brown — who was suspected of auto theft when Officer Miller encountered him — used a stolen police revolver to shoot Miller several times in the chest.

Former Minneapolis Police Chief Tony Bouza told WCCO-TV, “If he has rehabilitated himself and confronted his crime, and admitted it and acknowledged it, he ought to be released because justice ought to be tempered with mercy.”

Brown had served 37 years behind bars.
