I received an email from a detective in Evanston, Illinois. As far as I can tell he has no direct ties to Oakland PD. He pointed out to me that the tragedy there left 10 children without fathers. That is an amazing and horrible number. He asked me to spread the word on a fund raising effort he is coordinating for the fallen officers’ families out there. I jealously protect you all from the endless solicitations, etc. that I receive, however this one was quite moving.
If you are so inclined, head over to this link and help him with his project. One hundred percent of the profits go directly to the families. Thanks!
