Farewell Officer Schultz

  • MERRILLVILLE — Images of Merrillville Police Officer Nickolaus “Nick” Schultz flickered past on the screen at the Star Plaza Theatre — as an apple-cheeked toddler playing in the bathtub, a boy preparing to launch a throw in a Little League game, a teen excelling at football, hockey and golf, hanging out with family, friends and his girlfriend, and celebrating graduation with a cigar.

    A picture of him in his Franklin College football jersey graced the stage alongside his Merrillville Police dress uniform, mementos and a bevy of flowers.

    All of it was a reminder of a life that ended far too soon.
A sizable city, county, suburban and state presence from this side of the border. Thoughts and prayers to our Indiana brethren who have been having a very rough time of it.

The presence from numerous Illinois agencies including Chicago PD were indeed humbling.

The numbers that came to show their respect for a young officer that gave his ultimate sacrifice were quite inspiring.

With much appreciation.

Channel 2 chose to lead there 6 PM newscast with the idiotic facebook posting about Stevenson high school. Total nonsense. They couldn't lead the news with a one minute piece on officer Schultz.
