Fallen Officer

My thoughts tonight are with the men and women of Honolulu Police and the family and friends of Officer Steve Favela who died as the result of injuries sustained when his motorcycle crashed during a presidential motorcade last Tuesday.

Officer Favela, 30, was an eight year veteran of HPD.

He left behind a wife and four children, ages 5 to 3 months.


It should be noted that more officers die in the line of duty each year due to vehicle accidents than to gunfire.

Guns don't kill people, cars kill people.

Don't let your friends drive guns.

It is unfortunate that he died, but hopefully since it was in the line of duty, his family will be compensated somewhat for their loss, although nothing could ever replace a fallen father / husband.
