Hey catch 22, this cop was not a killer. He truly felt remorse for what had happened. I know him and his family. He felt horrible.Its people like you that drove him to take his own life, and now his family is left with nothing but horrible things being said about him. This man was truly a good natured, down to earth,happy,sincere,dovoted husband and father. If you down't know someone for who they really are then keep your opinions to yourself!

Obviously you have not taken much thought or consideration on this event. Your comment lacks maturity. Good luck on the next NYCPD test, sonny.

Take a good look at yourself and think about life, and in particular, your own life. You d&$ks make america look like a nation of serial killing jokers. Seriously, I was considering moving back to the USA but narrow minded crap like this makes me want to stay right here in Australia - where people have respect for each other.

This cop has helped with creating a safe environment for all of us and had made a mistake. He didn't have to take his own life. People make mistakes all the time. We are only human. Too bad that he felt compelled to take his own life.
