I was involved in a accident on the way to work at the Milliken plant in La Grange, Ga, and hit a car that was parked on the other side of troup ave backing out of my drive way, I was scared and didn't want to miss work, Patrolman Bullock came over to my house the next day and told he would be giving me a ticket for improper backing, and not hit and run, Patrolman Bullock told me he hoped that I had learned a lesson and said to never do that again. I was so thankful that a policeman would take the time to help me understand lifes lessons. I was driving to the post office on the day Patrolman Bullock was on duty directing traffic for the Christmas parade, I came around the circle towards post office, I noticed Patrolman Bullock and slowed down I asked him how was he doing he smiled and said I've got patrol duty for Christmas parade, I told him Merry Christmas and thanked him. I was in tears to find out he had died later that day. RIP Patrolman Bullock ! U are my hero ! Clark Velazquez.
