My condolences to the family of Sergeant Luis A. Meléndez-Maldonado. Losing a loved one is difficult. Please take comfort in Jesus words found at John 5:28,29 where he said that there would be a resurrection. Just think of the time when you will see your loved ones again, in paradise conditions, here on earth. Once again, my condolences.

God Bless and watch over the family and fellow officers who try to make a difference. I have know friends who were officers and civilian friends shot by the dregs of our country Drug Dealers. And I have no pity or sorrow for anything that happens to them. Sergeant Luis Meléndez-Maldonado in my book is a HERO for defending us from them. We all lose something important to our country when officers such as this are murdered by this kind of scum. I pray they never see the light of day again. No Parole For Cop Killers Ever!!!
This makes me so angry and I wish our Governments National and State would pass laws making it so severe a punishment for the murders that they would think twice. I extend my deepest heartfelt sorrow for your loss. We all feel the loss. God be with you.
