You: HERO. Your Killer: COWARDLY SCUM.

We've all filled our cruisers and wondered how vulnerable we were when doing so. You've proven us skeptics right.

Your family did not deserve this, YOU did not deserve this. Your entire family in blue mourns your horrendous murder and thank GOD that false excuse of a human being has been caught.

I will not rant any longer.

God Bless you and your family and may your eternal rest be peaceful. May your family forever keep you close in their hearts and minds, Brother.
