Officer Medina actually called LAPD Harbor front desk, not 911 which would have gone to CHP

John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

Robert was my partner for about two months. I can honestly say that I loved working with him every second. He had an amazing sense of humor and was the type of guy that made everything funny. I don't ever remember being annoyed or bummed out about anything when I worked with him. I looked forward to it every day. He was the type of guy that found everything funny and his contagious laugh meant that most of the shift was spent laughing so hard I could barely breathe.

He didn't have the mentality that is common with so many of us (cops). He was so light hearted and good natured that everything just rolled off his back. He frequently talked about his wife and how happy he was.

Rob was one of the coolest, nicest guys I've ever met, let alone worked with. I miss you brother. The pleasure was all mine.
