Reflections for Patrolman Robert H. Fossum

I went to school at Holy Rosary with Officer Fossum son. The Fossums were in the process of moving to the suburbs when this horrible event occurred. We met some days later and spoke about his father while on the swing. This wanton evil actions should never have occurred .
