I vividly remember the day Officer O'Guinn was murdered in the line of duty. I was on duty in the police radio room and listened intently as the dispatchers handled the incident. Later I went to Officer O'Guinn's funeral. I remember him well. He was a quiet guy and had a great sense of humor. Somewhere there is a photo of him directing traffic in I believe Chinatown. Years later I saw that photo in I think Time or Newsweek or some such while sitting in an airport in New York. It was a story I think about traffic cops. Officer O'Guinn was a motorcycle officer at the time of his death. He was a great guy!

Officer O'Guinn,
On today, the 34th anniversary of your murder, I would like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of San Francisco. What appalls me is how your murderers only 7 and years 8 years respectively for murdering a Law Enforcement officer-that shows how screwed up the legal system was in California at that time.

Thank you for your sacrifice, you are gone but not forgotten. God bless you.
