The mother of a teen boy kidnapped and murdered more than a decade ago is voicing her outrage that one of the defendants is about to be released from prison.
I have lost a sense of justice. I have lost Nick all over again. Its like him dying all over again, Susan Markowitz told CBS2/KCAL9 reporter Randy Paige.
In August 2000, 15-year-old Nicholas Markowitz was kidnapped because of a drug debt his half brother owed a dealer named Jesse James Hollywood.
The innocent teen was held for three days, then tied up with duct tape and led to a shallow grave where he was shot nine times. Markowitzs last days inspired the 2006 film Alpha Dog, which featured an A-list cast and garnered international attention.
Hollywood, considered the mastermind behind the brutal murder, was convicted of murder and sentenced to life without the possibility of parole.
The shooter, Ryan Hoyt, was convicted of murder and sentenced to death.
Jesse Rugge, now 33, was convicted of kidnapping and sentenced to life with the possibility of parole in 2002.
He walked my son up to the grave that was already dug. He walked him up and he duct-taped his hands behind his back and his feet together and told Nick, Im not going to hurt you, Susan Markowitz said. And Nick responded, I know you wont. How can you say that and then follow through after looking into those innocent eyes that are now crying thats a special kind of evil.
This week the California state parole board granted Rugges request for parole. He is scheduled to be released Tuesday.
Its very upsetting to think hes going to get out and get married because he has a fiancée and have babies, Markowitz said.
The things you always dreamed about for your son? Paige said.
Yes. He was my only child, Markowitz said.
The state parole board declined Paiges request for an on-camera interview, saying its policy not to comment on specific cases. The board said they based their decision on a finding that the prisoner no longer poses an unreasonable risk of danger to the public.
What do you say to those who say everyone should get a second chance and thats what the justice system is about. When you show that you are not a danger to society and youve learned your lesson should you have a chance to go free? Paige said to Markowitz.
I think that when it involves taking the life of another that you should forfeit yours, said Markowitz, who said the parole boards decision has denied her son the justice he deserves.

That’s California for you. The home of freed killers and commies, wacko politicians, adulterers, druggies, Rap/Hip Hop gang murders, and Charles Manson wannabes.
Does God hate America so much that he cursed us with the leftists of California, or is this an aberration that has become “normal”?
> Jesse Rugge ... sentenced to life with the possibility of parole in 2002.
> California state parole board granted Rugges request for parole. He is scheduled to be released Tuesday
Wait... what? So what does “without the possibility of parole” actually mean?
I got buddies still rotting in federal prison just for smuggling boatloads of pot in the 80s
America....her flag is indeed upside down
Well, there’s an injustice that will hopefully be corrected.
Rugge's sentence included the possibility of parole. In his case, life with "possible" meant 12 years.
Well, theres an injustice that will hopefully be corrected.
When the parole board and the judge are held liable for thier stupidity this compasionate, he or she has been cured, or we dont have the money to lock them up anymore humanitarian think will end.
No jury will convict mom.
Aaaah. It was 2:23am.
God doesn’t and never has hated America. The problem is that the majority of those living in America hate God. And neither he nor His influence will stay where they are not wanted. And that is where America finds itself today. If you think that things are bad now, just wait until tomorrow. Pull your belts tight because the ride is just starting.
Yeah, because this type of senseless violence just doesn't occur in the state you live in. /smh
It's not like he murdered the kid in a barfight or that the kid was a bystander in a botched convenience store robbery.He murdered a helpless, restrained kid deliberately, in cold blood, after toying with him.
He is a stone cold psychopath.
It is simply a matter of time before he does something like this again. And there is no way the judge does not realize this.
Our ideological enemy at that time knew that we would not be defeated on the battlefield and that any one-on-one physical war would end with nuclear annihilation.
Better to tap into our psychology and manipulate our behavior via our beliefs and emotions.
The fittest survivor is not always the physically larger and stronger. No matter how fast and powerful the hardware, a little bug in the software will bring it down.
Convert enough hearts and minds and sooner or later your enemy will demonstrate the ancient wisdom that a house divided against itself cannot stand. We broadcast Radio Free America from the outside, but they countered with a long term plan from within.
Interestingly enough, that bug our enemy planted here killed them before it got us and now our roles are being reversed, as they recover while we succumb.
Yes, you are right. In the 1920s, the influential Italian communist Antonio Gramsci wrote that in order to take over a country or a society, communists first had to take over its institutions, by which he meant the media, the education system, the universities, the legal profession, voluntary organisations and churches. Methodically, and slowly but surely, his idea was put into practice in our country. All of those very institutions have been taken over by the far Left in our country, and they are now taking us to our doom.
But you are correct, parole boards suck all over the country.
You sure are chucking a lot of stones around there sport...
That's what I would do if he killed one of my children.
