Thank you for posting information regarding my uncle Charlie's bio. He and my grandfather John H.Crankshaw were identical twins and both served as City of Atlanta Officers.My grandfather retired in the 60's at the rank of Detective. it is very personal for me whenever I hear of Officers losing their life in the line of duty. PS: the gun the assailant used was a 32 caliber pearl handled Saturday Night Special. My grandfather retrieved it from the evidence lock up and kept it for the rest of his life.
