Man becomes cop to honor murdered brother

NBC Miami – For Ronald Page the pain is never far away – even on the day he fulfilled his brother’s dream by graduating from the police academy.

It has been nearly seven years since Evan Antwan Page, 17, was killed at a Checkers drive-thru in Florida when he wouldn’t give in to a man carrying a gun who was trying to rob him.

“When this killing happened even his teacher came from Carol City (High) School crying,” his grandmother recalled Thursday.

She called it senseless – the murder of a promising high school student who was in the Police Explorers and JROTC programs and who wanted to be a police officer.

Years later that dream was realized Thursday afternoon, in a way.

“I decided at least for the short term, live out his dream and become a police officer,” Ronald Page said.

He graduated from the Miami Police Department’s training academy, deciding that for now that is the way for him to help his community and honor his brother.
