228 years and 1 month. First known US LEO to be killed in the line of duty. If by any chance the distant relatives are reading this, you have my full support. May he look down on us and be happy he is still remembered for his ultimate sacrifice.

At the moment you died, too many officers had given their lives in the service of protecting the public, and too many more have followed. Hopefully you found some peace in your eternal rest. Godspeed, Constable.

You survived the American Revolution, and yet you died from the bullet of a common criminal, the first policeman of our country that we know to have done so. It is unfortunate that those things happen, but at least we know you died helping to protect peace and freedom. R.I.P. Constable Quimby
