Agent Gentleman,
On today, the 112th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice as a LEO. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. Like some of the other people who have left reflections here, I too am angered that your murderer was only sentenced to ten years in prison.
