Reflections for Master Trooper Kevin Keith Conner

Participated in the 5th Annual Memorial Run for Kevin this year (2023). I never had the pleasure to meet him, but I hear wonderful stories from his mom, dad, their friends, and all of Kevin’s family. He is surely not forgotten.

This is a very sad story. But unfortunately we will continue to read about cops being senselessly killed by the scum of our society. We as a people should be outraged...but we are not. It appears that nobody want to do something about this. The justice system is a failed system that is over-commercialized and it needs a total overhaul. Putting people in prison is not a deterrent...the death penalty is not a deterrent either because the offender can appeal 16 times over 20 + years. The root cause of a problem within a society isn't treated...only the symptoms...and the murders continue on. Too many juveniles grow up without fathers...and roam around the streets to cause mayhem to others because they lack guidance and somebody to show them that there is a better way. We can "invest" billions in foreign aid...for bullets, bombs and banks the money printing machines can go into high gear...but somehow there are no funds available to straighten these bastards out. Of course nothing will happen and more troopers and cops will be murdered and their names will only be remembered on interstate overpasses. We as a people have failed and America is NOT the "greatest country".

Man, you've been on my mind heavy here lately. I think about the wreck we were on a couple of nights before, and you gave the little kid the trooper badge...I think of seeing you around that same time on 74 working traffic and me passing by laying on the horn. I think about the wrecks where you'd get out, throw that campaign hat on, and brighten everyone's day. I could go on and on, Kevin, from when I met you as a Firefighter/EMT, to the times I was your Dispatcher with the Highway Patrol, to when I was a Deputy Sheriff and worked the same county you were assigned. You were indeed one of a kind. I find myself rereading your text and watching videos of you just to hear your voice one more time. I Love You Brother and Miss You More Than You’ll Ever Know!

One of the most difficult task of becoming an Old Timer Law Enforcment Officer is watching these kids grow up, becoming attached to them as if they were, in a way your own. To see one of them lose his life is extremely difficult... I thank God for my time with Kevin and the memories; he was such a happy and joyful young man that brought so much joy to others. I Pray for his family.....As for Kevin, I'm sure that he is now in paradise!!!

The true measure of a person
is not found in the
might of their arm,
their wealth
or their power –
it is found in the strength
of their character.

There is no greater testimony to
ones character, than ones
willingness to sacrifice all,
in the noble quest of
providing protection to all
whom they serve.

Javier Cornejo, Police Officer, Retired
City of Milwaukee Police Department, Milwaukee WI
