Special Officer Burton, today marks the 86th anniversary of your murder. You gave your life in defense of one of the reasons America is as great as it is, our railroads. We can only hope that those responsible faced true justice at some point, if not in this life, then in the next. You sir, are a hero and are not forgotten.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.
