Both Officers are heroes to everyone in NYC and to their families. They did their job without question, protecting the public they served knowing the inherent risk of wearing the uniform. It is a rare person to take up that challange. Volunteers or paid, NYC has lost two of its FINEST.

Aloha Auxiliary Police Officer Nicholas T. Pekearo,
Thank you for your service and dedication to your community and your country. You and all officers that continue to lay your lives on the line and pay the ultimate sacrifice to keep our communities and country safe, will NEVER be forgotten.

I personally pledge, (after one of Hawaii's own Honolulu Police Officer Steve Favela, lost his life last year in the line of duty protecting our Commander in Chief, President George W. Bush), to become a continuum; a sacred keeper of the ODMP light. That sacred light is in the form of an ODMP tribute. People from all walks of life, regardless of age, race, religion, profession, education, and geographical location can share here.

This "LIGHT" comes from within the heart and soul of every person who shares their memories, stories, and celebrations on behalf of each and every fallen officer. Every fallen officer is a hero. The ODMP; Officer Down Memorial Page gives us a place to come together and share our feelings as one family. As we read the many heartfelt tributes left behind, may we find solace as we give solace to the families who have lost a loved one. May we build upon love and faith knowing that this “bridge of tributes” will carry each and every one of us through the pain and sorrow until we meet with our beloved one again.

Auxiliary Police Officer Nicholas T. Pekearo,
as we say in Hawaii, “You are`Ohana.” “You are family.” You are embraced as our own family member. No one will ever be able to replace you for you were unique and very special. No one, not in this lifetime. May God Bless you and keep you. May God allow you to rest in peace. I wish you, your loved ones, and your fellow officers peace and love beyond all understanding. I HONOR you today. You will NEVER be forgotten.

--“Your life is much more important than you can imagine.” -- Maya Angelou

** May this Hawaiian prayer give all those who read it comfort. **


Peace be with you, All My Peace,
O ka Maluhia no me oe, Ku'u Maluhia a pau loa,

The Peace that is " I ", the Peace that is "I am".
Ka Maluhia o ka "I", owau no ka Maluhia,

The Peace for always, now and forever and evermore.
Ka Maluhia no na wa a pau, no ke'ia wa a mau a mau loa aku.

My Peace " I " give to you, My Peace " I " leave with you,
Ha'awi aku wau I ku'u Maluhia ia oe, waiho aku wau I ku'u Maluhia me oe,

Not the world's Peace, but, only My Peace,
The Peace of " I ".

A'ole ka Maluhia o ke ao aka, ka'u Maluhia wale no,
Ka Maluhia o ka "I".

Although I consider the Carolinas my home, I was born in Manhattan. The LAPD and the NYPD have so many mutual friends and relatives. A NYPD / NYPD Auxiliary loss is like having a loss here at LAPD, for many of us. May the souls of two so young, who were murdered almost exactly 15 years as Auxiliary Police Officer Armando Rosario, Rest - In- Peace....

Hero's N.Y.P.D. Officers Nicholas T. Pekearo and Yevgeniy Marshalik, They dont make them any braver.
Those heros answered there radios and responded to a armed robbery with no weapons to protect themselves. They engaged the suspect chased him as he fled while radioing in there location and description of the suspect. As he pulled a weapon they retreated and the suspect chased them down, this enabled backup officers to arrive on location and take the suspect out. If they did not do what they did the suspect would of been g.o.a. and other lives would of been at risk. By putting there lives on the line and keeping the suspect in sight and occupied it enabled backup officers to arrive before he fled the area..
They are hero's, rest in peace my brother's...

To Officer Pekearo's Family: He was a hero, and there is a special place for him in Heaven. To confront an armed individual when he was unarmed took GUTS. I wish I could have met this young man. He could have taught me some things about dedication. He took care of the people of his beat.

It's not how you die that makes you a hero... it's how you live. For Officer Pekearo to pursue a killer, while unarmed, is beyond heroic.
