    Even though that happened quite some time ago, I still think about him everyday. He isn't buried that far from Tye. And I wasn't aware of this until a couple of weeks ago when I went on a ride along in North Omaha, but him and Tye were from the same precinct.

    Continue to Rest in Peace Jimmy.

    I Remember that day Myself, what a sad time that was. But Him and Jason are together, along with all the fallen officers in the world.. one thing i can hang my hat on is this "3 nails, 1 cross = LOVE" May they all rest in peace.

    For those who continue the watch, Please stay safe!

    Not that I have anything against honouring fallen officers but why are you posting one that's so old? Is there some reason I'm not aware of?

    Jimmy and Tye where from the same precinct, they where laid to rest very close to one another..

    Even though his death was many years ago, it's still ways heavy in our hearts, sorry for the post, i'll try not to let it happen again.

    It's no problem. I was just curious. I could have asked via PM but I guessed others would be curious too.

    but fully understand why you wanted to post it brother....

    We shouldn't forget such sacrifices made by fellow officers..

    RIP
