sculpture in honor of San Bernardino Sheriffs Detective Jeremiah MacKay, who was slain by former LAPD officer Christopher Dorner, will be revealed in Lake Arrowhead Sunday, Sept. 1.
A resident of Lake Arrowhead, MacKay died February 12. He left behind a wife and two young children.
Part-time resident and sculptor Khachik Khachatouryan decided to create something that would honor MacKay after meeting several sheriff deputies at a party in April. ...
Khachatouryan said he didnt want to make a sculpture just about a law enforcement officer, but also of a person, father, husband and hero.
The bronze sculpture shows MacKays bust and torso and will stand on a four and a half-foot-tall granite pedestal. It depicts MacKay with his right hand over his heart, a beret and a dove next to him, meant to represent the life and freedom he gave to his community.
I met his wife to get the beret that he used to wear every time he would play the bagpipe, Khachatouryan. I thought it was a very unique and specific thing because its not part of the uniform officers wear, but something very special and characterizing of Jeremiah.

Thought that this would interest you, my FRiend.
How about statues for the uninvolved civilians they attacked?
A bronzed pickup truck riddled with holes facing one tboned.
What ever became of that motherf***er... I mean cabin... that they burned down?
This is a silly overreaction on the part of those who worship the state, and their enforcers.
They commemorate the detective and Trayvon, but a WWII vet and a stroller bound victim of racial attacks get yawned at.
Makes one sick to watch it.
