Patrolman Dipple, you gave your life trying to keep the peace and protecting property from scoundrels. I can understand why the Draft Riots occurred, but as with all riots, the meaning behind it is pushed aside by the lowest of life forms, opportunists who take advantage of a situation for their own personal gain. We can only hope that those who caused your death (and ALL filthy vermin who loot) faced true justice, if not in this world, then in the next.

You were a hero and deserve this memorial page on this anniversary of your passing.

God Bless and may you eternally Rest in Peace, Brother.
