I am Angela McMinn Daughter of Chief Andrew Williams EOW 09/03/1976 I also am the coordinator of Officer Down's no parole program and am working on my June report of upcoming paroles.OFFicer Dwyers Killer is on here. I always try to read all of an officers reflections because here is where I can come to know an officer where I cant in news Articles.
I learned several things on this One. He was way too young to be taken from all who love him. He was shaping up to be one hell of a cop. His family was amazing and he liked his beer. I would say there is a real good chance he has had a few with my dad in Heaven. If there is ever anything that I can do for his family Blood or Blue you can email me at [email protected]
