When I was 15, I looked so much forward to the weekends to go on a ride along as a LASO Explorer, my adopted partners were Hak Scott and Jack Miller from the Norwalk station. They shaped my life to later go to the academy and become sworn in the LA area. When I heard of the tragedy in 88, I was devastated. I have never forgotten my mentor and friend. I doubt anyone will read this 30 Years later, but if you do please know what a great, kind, and brave person Deputy Jack Miller was.
