    I knew Ken by name only. He was a good man and example for what police should be. I have heard stories of his dedication to his family and fellow officers. This dedication is apparent as he was working on his day off.

    It makes me sick that some scumbag took a man like this life. I’m glad this piece of trash survived getting shot… I hope he rots on death row before he burns in hell

    Rest in Peace Ken… my thoughts and prayers to your family and fellow officers at San Marcos Police
