Reflections for Police Officer Christie D. Masone

I cannot begin to express the anger that is felt while reading about the aquittal of this suspect. Officer, you are never, ever forgotten for your heroism and courage as is the case with your partner and many correctional officers who gave their lives at the hands of this one pathetic suspect. Thank you for your service.

It’s John it has been 27 years and I still think about you and Norman. All the fun and wacky things we did on patrol, all the people we helped, battles we fought and bosses we annoyed.
We were the new centurions, in an area that had the highest violent crime rate in the US per capita. I am writing this letter and memorial directly to Chris because he has stayed alive in my soul all these years, and I missed talking to him. I am 53 and I have returned to Law enforcement Florida. Chris it’s not the same , no one listens anymore , they aren’t close , I am trying everyday to make a difference and gather up some unity in the troops but it has been a lost cause. They just don’t get it. Maybe it’s the error we are in, and maybe the kinds of today just think there so darn smart. I remember what my first partner in Major Case Squad said to me. You would have liked him his name was Henry Reminterer . He said when he was 16 he knew everything , in his 20’s he was pretty darn bright , in his thirties he had a great deal of knowledge , in his forties there was some doubt and now that he was in his 50’s he realizes how stupid he has been all these years .
The good news for me is I am doing good things in a small way. Remember I used to call my patrol my ministry and you and Norman used to laugh at me. So I’m back in the” bag” on patrol and loving it. The public loves us down here and its nice being loved. You will never be forgotten, God Bless you and your family.

Your friend,

John Michael Gaspar, Sector Charlie 79 Pct

Chris and his partner Norm Cerullo were friends and brother officers at the 79Pct. They were both good street cops. They wanted to rid the streets of such criminals. GOD REST THEIR SOULS !
