I am a retired Boeing Engineer, 85 years old. During my life, 3 years in USAF, I have encountered MP's and Policeman, some bad and most good. In 1956, attending the U of M I lived in a boarding house for men. That summer in walked a new room mate who had just returned from military service and started working as a Minneapolis Policeman. He worked Lake Street, rough part of town. He was a huge man, had a huge smile, and a huge gentle spirit. I asked him why he became a Policeman and he said, "I have been blessed with a huge body, there are hurting people out there that do bad things and need help. That is my job." I always remembered his name so last month (Dec, 2014) with all the anti-police rhetoric, I decided to google search, Inno Suek. And this memorial page appeared. This old man sat down and cried. I will never forget him. People tear up when I tell them this story.
