"Your actions exhibited a total disregard for not only the law but the lives of innocent members of society," the state Parole Board said in a decision last Tuesday.

"Not only did you harm the victims and their families, but the N.Y.C. community as a whole," the Parole Board statement read.

Berkowitz automatically comes up for parole every two years, and this is the fifth time he has been denied release.
