To those citizens in a community who seldom have the conscious need of law enforcement assistance, PLEASE REMEMBER that these individuals who have diligently trained for and been appointed to our safety, protection, education and peaceful living, are just as worthy of our acknowledgement and recognition for their service as those holding national military positions on the battlefield. Every time they put on that uniform to serve us (and oftentimes when not in uniform, on duty-just because of the role they fill) they are putting their lives on the line! They all have friends and loved ones; most have children and spouses who know the certain reality that stands behind a wife's playfully-honest statement "don't make me rich tonite, babe" (which translates-"be safe, my prayers are with you") as her husband leaves home to go to work. Citizens, please don't wait til a day comes that you do need their assistance to say "thank you Officer ..." , or worse, if the day comes to honor them because their lives and their service to us have ended "in the line of duty". A true doctor or nurse who is "off the clock" will not refuse to help someone in need, neither will a law enforcement officer who is truley a "public servant". Gob bless and keep safe all our law enforcement officers and their families. THANK YOU for your SERVICE!
Prayers and sympathy to Angela's family and friends, God bless you.
In regards to the comments that have already been posted here...I realize accurate reporting is important, but a life was suddenly ended due to this incident. Have statistics become more important than people? God be with the family, friends, and saints of this Pastor.
