Reflections for Sergeant Michael R. King

Never met you Mike, but I found this site after seeing your street in the Loop. Seems like you had an overwhelmingly positive impact on this community and much love to you and your family for the sacrifice. Happy Independence Day :)

Sgt. King, I never had the honor to meet you in person. I remember that Saturday morning, four years ago, when I heard the news. I was still in college, and it just seemed so surreal to me. Your legacy can be seen at the department everyday. People reflect on your integrity, intelligence, and your conviction. You made this city a better place. Your service will never be forgotten.

Sgt.King and family I am sorry the death penalty was not given to the scumbag.This is a injustice to you,your family and your profession..Now the taxpayers of Missouri are going to have to pay to house this scum for the rest of his life,to include any medical problems in the future. Again this is a miscarriage of justice.Rest in peace my brother,rest in peace.
