When I heard of Officer Casillas death I was reminded of Officer Carlo Pojetto's death over 60 years ago. I don't know why; I did not know him, but I remember we were attending Pomona High School at the same time. I remembered him then and thought about what a waste of a life of an officer doing his job. I was surprised that I found this information after so many years, but am glad that he is still remembered.
