Project Blue Light

Honoring the memories of police officers killed in the line of duty and their survivors.


I doubt that being taken for a ride in a police car and being allowed to hang out at the station while my mom went to church for a few hours would've have scared me.

I doubt that being on TV while playing with the toy I had stolen would deter me from stealing.

I doubt that his mom will ever understand why her son "has a history of being disobedient 'and getting away with it.'"

Sentencing has begun.
