Rodney and I were classmate in the academy. Our first assignment was at the former 8th Precinct, where we worked together as scout car partners. We eventually went in different direction; Rodney going to Gang Squad and I went to the Narcotic's Section. Rodney was given the code name "Hot Rod," and I was given "Superman." No matter where we were, when he saw me, he would extend his arms making the wind sound of flying, calling "SUP!" I remember that smile and our conversations. Rodney was a classmate, a partner, a friend and it's very hard to accept that his tour of duty is over. Miss you "Hot Rod."
