To Eric Everett

I am Eric Carter, the officer that arrested the man that kicked Bennie and caused his death. I am the officer that came to Bennie's aid and could not save him. It was a sad, rainy night.

Your grandpa was a good man and a good cop. He was my friend. I wish you could have known him.
