To Officer Shukur,

My name is Student Police Officer Heksem. I’ve done some extensive digging into your story, & yet I can only process maybe a fraction of the shockwave your story brings.

You were young, with experience in the armed forces, newly married, with an amazing sounding honeymoon; fresh on the job with only 18 months on duty, and had a whole life ahead that was full of plans waiting to be fulfilled.

I feel strongly that someone took that away from you. The worst part of it is that it wasn’t only you that they took from. That someone also took from your wife, your family, your partner, your friends, the city, and your future. I truly pray that you rest easy, & may the ones that survived you have peace. I ask that you even watch over & protect other officers & me as I enter the profession that we love.
