Unfortunately, we see yet another police officer killed in the line of duty. What is even more unfortunate is that the "cop killer" is being given tremendous respect by the community, even having a memorial resurrected in his memory. He was wanted in connection with a homicide, and then killed a police officer. The officer was a rookie but well-respected and "dreamed of being a police officer" since he was a boy. R.I.P. Officer Santiago. If you so desire, please visit http://www.odmp.org/officer/22135-police-officer-melvin-santiago and leave him and his family a note. It means the world to the family when they see not only strangers, but strangers from across our country pay their respect to not only an LEO, but their son. God bless and stay safe everyone.
