  1. For many years Lt Addison has had a soft spot for our community. He said that he and another officer were decoys on Forest Ave wearing shtraimels. If was after BMG students walking on Friday night were attacked by egg throwing from passing cars. Soon enough they threw eggs at the decoys and were arrested. That stopped the egg throwing problem. However, Lt Addison always remembered how it felt to be a target of hate.

    Lieutenant William Addison, thanks for being a ‘mentch’. I will always remember you.
