I'm not sure how many of my brothers & sisters in blue remember the horrible events that took place under the evil hand of the Texas 7 back in 2000. One of the people who were brutally murdered by these escaped convicts was an Irving Police Officer by the name of Aubrey Hawkins. I received an email from TMPA (which is a wonderful organization here to protect cops) stating the following:

We received the following email from the widow of Aubrey Hawkins, an Irving officer and TMPA member.  We would like to honor Lori's request and pass her email on to you -

My name is Lori Hawkins-Acosta.  I am the widow of Irving Officer Aubrey Hawkins.  He was killed in the line of duty Christmas Eve, 2000.  At the time of his death, he was an active member of TMPA. 
I'm sure yourself and organization are aware that the remaining so called "Texas 7" were all convicted and sentenced to death.  In the recent months, one of the "criminals," Michael Rodriguez, requested an early execution.  That request was signed by a district judge in Dallas County and an execution date has been set for next month, August 14, 2008 at 6:00pm in Huntsville. 
I would greatly appreciate your help in notifying all TMPA members...  Aubrey would want them to be aware.  Any and all support during this time of justice would be greatly appreciated.  I am asking that any officer available on the above date and time make their presence known in uniform at the Huntsville prison in honor of Aubrey.  In my opinion , and I know it would be Aubrey's as well, this is the first step towards final justice.
Feel free to pass this message and my email address on to any officer intrested in the execution.

If you're curious about the Texas 7, all you have to do is GOOGLE it and you'll find out more than you want to know. The remainder of these scumbags should be put out of our missery. God bless you Lori, we love you and will do all we can.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

I am very familiar with the Texas7 and their fatal rampage.  I will pass the message on so that all in my area are aware.  Thanks for the info!  You and your family will remain in my thoughts and prayers.
