Though I did not know Darrell personally, I knew his family since his father was a paster at the First Baptist Church (formerly Friendship Baptist) in Manvel, Texas; I was baptized by his father. I served in law enforcement at the time Darrel was killed. Darrel's use of video, at his own expense, laid the groundwork that has saved numerous law enforcement officers across this country
