I was a young rookie officer with Miami Police back in 1986. I heard and then read about your passing. As a Latino officer myself, I was assigned to work in Liberty City in Miami. A very violent and crime-plagued area of Miami, drugs, gangs, murders, you name it. I always thought that working maybe Hialeah would be safer than where I was assigned. So to my young mind back then it did not occur to me that harm could come way in any location and at any time. As I read about your killing, I said to myself what kind of an animal would do this to another human being? You meant no harm to the subject and it was only a simple misdemeanor. You, Sir behaved professionally to the end, it was not supposed to be this way for you. I only hope your family kept on and your children whom are now grown can continue your legacy.
