I was a police officer in Muscogee County, Georgia at the time, remember the incident well. We weer assigned to highways leading from Atlanta pending a look-out for the suspects.

I grew up in DeKalb County adjacent to Gwinnett. I was 15 years old when these officers were killed. I remember it very well. 7 years later I joined the Atlanta Police Dept. I retired 44 years later after serving with three agencies. This incident was one of the reasons I decided to make a career of law enforcement. May you rest in peace and may your families know you did not did in vain. Without dedicated heroes like you no one would be safe.

I just read the book Judas Deputy. I come from a ( Gwinnett) law enforcement family and I was 14 when this terrible crime happened.
My step father was a Gwinnett County Sheriff then.
We will never forget the ultimate sacrifice that these three decent men gave. My heart still goes out to their families.

I was a rookie Atlanta Police Officer in October 1965 when this case went to trial. Upon retiring completely from law enforcement around 2010 I began research on this incident and after interviews, newspaper research, copying trial transcripts and gathering 29 photos of the case I published a 378 page book with 29 photos and a trial transcript called JUDAS DEPUTY.

These men did not deserve what happened to them. It has been a very long time, but I will never forget. I was not there. God Bless Them.
They are in a better place.

Just read a new book concerning this case "Judas Deputy" by Mackie Carson. Chilling details about the murder of these three Gwinnett police officers. One of the killers was a police officer. This was a very sad time.

Officer Everett,
On today, the 42nd anniversary of the murder of you and your fellow officers, I would like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Gwinett County. It's a travesty of justice that your murderers were paroled.

Officer Everett, forty years after your passing, a citizen was waiting in our roll call room at one of our Gwinnett County PD precincts and saw the large framed newspapers covering your tragic death. She made snide comment of how we "apparently don't forget". I immediately turned around and told her in a very firm but professional voice, "Ma'am, we will NEVER forget." She made no comment, sat down and quietly waited, hopefully thinking about what I said.

I wanted to let you know, Officer Everett, that the officers and employees of the Gwinnett County Police Department thank you for your service and will remember your sacrifice.
