Gov. Andrew Cuomo must remove the state Board of Parole members who voted to free cop-killer Herman Bell, state Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan has demanded.

“Herman Bell is a callous and depraved cop-killer who took the lives of two police officers just because they wore the uniform. He has forfeited his ability to live outside of the four walls of a prison cell,” Flanagan said in a statement.

“The members of the Parole Board who made this decision should be removed immediately.”

Bell — one of three Black Liberation Army members who killed NYPD Officers Joseph Piagentini and Waverly Jones in 1971 — was granted parole by the board following an interview with him earlier this Monday.

The trio lured the officers to a Harlem housing project with a phony emergency call and then opened fire, the New York Post reports.
