Mourning one of the finest

The death of Police Officer Dennis Guerra as a result of being overcome in a fire in an apartment building is indeed a tragedy for his wife, four children and the NYPD. This never should have happened, but it did, allegedly due to a senseless act by a 16-yearold boy who was bored and decided to set a mattress in his room on fire. Now this young man should face the maximum punishment allowed under the law. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Officer Guerra’s wife, children, family and colleagues, as well as prayers for a speedy recovery for his partner, who was also injured in that fire.
