New England law enforcement has continued to thrive, learn and become safer due to the traditions and sacrifices you, your family, and many others have made for us. Thank you for your law enforcement service.

I happened upon the spot of Officer Cuneo's murder while visiting Boston. I believe that reflecting on his sacrifice was an important part of my vacation. Because of him and others like him, I was able to enjoy the city. I sincerely appreciate his service and hope that his family continues to be blessed by his memory.

Officer Cuneo, today marks the 87th anniversary of your murder. I have no way of knowing if you knew the suspect was a former police officer, but guessing you did, I’m sure you approached him differently than if he had been just the average lowlife. It’s only natural if you did, we all would. It’s so tragic that this man who once was a member of the family went so far astray and killed a brother, depriving your wife and nine children of their husband and father. Though I’m sure you never truly left their sides, you were never with them physically again, and that is the most tragic part of the whole story.

You are a hero and I know in my heart you tried to rectify the situation with no one getting hurt. That truly is the sign of a hero.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.
