I remember when my oldest son had first begun his long journey down the wrong path Officer Beebe tried his best to put the fear of God Law and Order into that boy. I never will forget that, he actually cared about people he swore to protect and serve. Not that I believe in any other race but the human race Officer Beebe did not let the differences in skin pigmentation dissuade him from trying his best to make a difference in Harford county. It was painful learning of his death to this day I still have his business card he gave me that day to always remember him by.
