John E. Schonwald: Chief’s visit changed a boy’s life

Thanks to Modesto Chief of Police Galen Carroll, an at-risk 10-year-old boy living in the airport neighborhood was treated to a life-changing experience. While tutoring “Junior” this summer, I asked what he’d like to be when he gets older. He said he’d like to be a policeman. This from a boy who has seen several relatives incarcerated, including his father.
