B/4 Exit 34 on the BG Parkway became your personal hunting ground you stalked Officer Ellis at home, at work, many believe you followed him all over town.
When you were on his street near his home scoping out the lay of the land were you close enough to see his family--hear his sons call him dad? What did you see when you swung by the ball field that day? Were the kids kicking up dirt, grumbling, acting out or enjoying themselves at play? When you drove by the police station to see where he routeinely parks his vehicle did you hear someone call his name or left their hand to wave? What exactly was your perception of this man as you glanced at a uniformed officer who was nonetheless, just an ordinary man?
When you gathered up the brush to place in this man's way did you talk amongst yourselves about your plans or silently stow the brush away? When you dressed from home to carry out your deadly deed what does a killer choose to wear to shoot an unsuspecting man in the dark? Would any old short sleeve black shirt do?
As you made haste to flee his death trap did you rehearse on your drive home what you would say if anyone asked what you were doing this time of day? How long do you anticipate the vision of this man's fatal collaspe in front you-- to leave you and finally go away?
Last Sunday was Father's Day. When you took time to kick back and relax did you think once of Officer Ellis' sons and how you changed this special day and their lives forever?
