Libertarian: Lifeguard, ACLU, Police Officer Down, Hero

Officer John W. Perry broke stereotypes.

African-American Lifeguard, decorated officer, ACLU board member. He helped develop a world Libertarian book store, and advised the Libertarian International Organization–doing hands on work for peace getting protective vests to brother officers in Russia.

A linguist, student of economics and philosophy, and artistic hobbyist, acted in Law & Order, and as he was turning oin his resignation to pursue work as an attorney, learned of the attack on the World Trade Center.

 He could have walked away. There he died in the rescue as others fled. Read memorials from friends, the police, college mates, and please help his memorial fund against injustice.
