RIP Officer Glasser. Thank you for your service. To his family who may read this; your son, husband and dad did not die in vain. He left us, protecting us from evil and he will forever be missed by many. Your son, husband and dad is a true hero. With all this anti police rehtoric in society nowadays please know and believe the greater silent majority appreciate his efforts and grieve with you.
