Sgt Dan Sakai lived 5 houses from me. For those who don’t know, I’m also a Police Officer in the Bay Area. I did not know him as well as I would have liked to. By all accounts he was one of the friendliest guys you could meet, always with a smile on his face. Loving father and husband, SWAT team leader, former K9, OPD’s rifle trainer, and consummate professional, he died attempting to put away a true monster and predator of society (DNA matches Lovelle Mixon to a rape case with a 12 y/o victim, is tied to a previous homicide, and had obviously just killed two cops). Thank you for standing in the breech and facing the enemy when others could or would not. Dan you will not soon be forgotten my brother! Our prayers and support continue to be with the family and loved ones of the 4 who were lost.
Thank you Crossfit for being the classy outfit that you are to create workouts such as these.
Let us all honor them even in a small way such as this by hitting this WOD with everything we’ve got. This one is for you Sarge!
