I first met officer Conner two nights before he was murdered at Middle Ga. College.I was a college guard and he and Cochran Police Officer Charles Cranford went to the store and got a couple items for me.I was glad to meet Officer Conner,a great man and very thoughtful.
I was so glad to learn that the killer animal got what he deserved that Saturday night as officer Cranford returned gunfire and shot and killed the murdering thug instantly.No trial for that thug.I only wish that Officer Cranford would've emptied his gun into the killer.R.I.P. Officer Conner,a HERO.
