Patrolman Schmidt, today marks the 21st anniversary of your sacrifice for the people of Ohio. I can only hope and pray that this kid, who caused your death, reformed and became a better person and contributing member of society BECAUSE of your sacrifice. If he didn't, he should burn in Hell.

God Bless you, Brother and may your eternal rest be forever peaceful.
