Jaime, I miss you so much, our morning breakfast before you went into the GJ and all your jokes and how you was still hyper after working your midnight shift. I can't believe it's been 18 years. Til we meet again my dear.

Seventeen years to life, yet a chance for parole in 2022. He should never again see the light of day and freedom is a dream he should take to HIS grave.

Detective, you died protecting someone. The fact that it was someone close to you is not the issue, you were doing your job, even while off duty and you are a true hero.

You murderer is anything but.

God Bless and may you eternally Rest in Peace, Brother.
