James “Jamie” Earl Givens. “A TRUE HERO” for the awesome “DALLAS POLICE DEPARTMENT”. I still owe Jamie a case of Budweiser, after he hammered me over Pizza in my home when The Celtics won...going away. I’ll repay that case of “Near Beer ” since alcohol was not prohibited in our Baptist up-bring. RIP Jamie...the best human ever to be graced in our times!
