Deputy Sheriff Briones,
Sir, it has taken over 66 years but you are finally being honored. I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Duval County. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. It angers me that the POS that murdered you only received a suspended 5 year sentence a cuter three trials.
