Reflections for Officer James A. Davis

This was my great grandfather. This story has been told to me since I was young, and now I patrol the same streets that he, my father, and now my brother, son and I patrol today. I talked about it in shift-meeting this morning. He was also employed as a milk inspector before he became a police officer. A runaway ice-wagon got away and he tried to stop it, being hit in the chest with the horse-drawn wagon's yoke. He died the next day. My grandmother said she remembered as a young child hearing him struggling to breathe as they visited him in the hospital.
