Letter to the Editor
I would like to say that the recent murder of a policeman at 25th Avenue and Lawton Street should be officially recognized.
I am a city gardener who will soon be working in District 4, where I live, for the first time in my 11-year career. When I was at Capuchino High School in San Bruno, California during 1971-1972, I had a classmate I talked to who was of Maltese descent. Around 30 years later, he, too, was murdered. His name: Dave Chetcuti of the Millbrae Police Department.
I didn't know SF Police Department officer Bryan Tuvera, but I feel the Sunset
Recreation Center, located at 28th Avenue and Lawton Street, should be named
after him in memoriam. In addition, there ought to be a plaque telling something
of his life and ultimate sacrifice, and also a large color photo of him inside
of the recreation center's walls. This will tell everybody that the Sunset cares,
and won't forget this hero's death.
