More than a dozen convicted murderers serving life sentences in Maryland prisons are routinely rewarded for good behavior with passes to visit their families -- a fact that has outraged crime victims.The issue of which inmates get leave came to light this week when convicted cop killer Samuel Veney escaped while visiting his son in Towson. Family leave is available to all prisoners except those sentenced to death or life without parole."I didn't even know there was such a thing," said Carol Cooper, 45, the daughter of Baltimore police Sgt. Jack Lee Cooper, the man Veney shot to death on Christmas morning in 1964.

CONVICTED cop killer Samuel Veney, who was returned to a Maryland prison Monday, walked away the same weekend two Los Angeles police officers were found guilty of violating Rodney King's civil rights. That was a coincidence, but both Sam Veney and Rodney King were involved in cases where police misconduct became at least as notorious as the misdeeds of either man.Before his brutal beating, King had led police and highway patrolmen on a high-speed car chase. He was quite drunk at the time.
