Reflections for Special Town Marshal Clemente Salazar

Just ran a cross this and it is scary. I remember Clemente being killed although I was just four years old and my parents took me to the festival. It was across the street from the new government center towards the railroad tracks.e Our house was across the railroad track. Anybody verify this for me??? Strange

I was just a kid when this happened. I remember my folks had taken us to a dance and there was a big fight outside and I remember the people said a peace officer had been killed. It is just unbelieveable that almost forty five years later I see this memorial to Clemente Salazar. It is nice to know he is not forgotten, nor the sacrifice he gave to the citizens of Bernalillio.
