Officer Smith. I visit this site often. My father was Chief of Police when he was killed. When I first read about your departure in 2011, it really and truly touched my heart. Here it is, nearly 5 years later and I'm still emotional. I know it's time to pay my respects to you. No. I didn't know you personally, but like so many others, because of your heroic and brave spirit, I wished I did. As I write this reflection on this date, there is so much chaos and hatred in this country between civilians and law enforcement. So much division. If I know nothing else, there is one thing I know. If civilians and law enforcement had the heart that you had, this country and world would be a better place. May you continue to Rest In Peace

P, Parker
