For some reason I have wanted to look this up for a long time. I was around the age of 10 growing up in Peoria when the officer was shot and killed. i am at an age now where I remember things from the past with a bit of reflection and maturity. I have a tremendous amount of respect for most police officers, as i lived for several years in New York City.
