It's now been 140 years. Your agency is now part of a much larger one and although the Brooklyn Police is just a part of history, you are a monument to it's existence, though a sad one at that. You're sacrifice is honored here.

God Bless and may your eternal rest be ever peaceful.

and what the hell was that e-mail all about? Well Ms. Edwards, I wish you well also. God Bless you in your quest for justice, no matter how misguided that quest became.
