Reflections for Police Officer Sidney L. Thompson

Your memory will always be carried on with the dignity and respect for their is no greater love than to sacrifice one's life for your fellow brothers and sisters. The members of the NYC Transit Police Memorial Lodge #317 are proud and honored to call you one of our own.

I decided to follow in my father's footsteps and become a police officer myself, initially in NYC in the precinct where the station he died at was located. He died doing something we mistakenly take for granted as being a "routine" function of our job. He was issuing an individual a summons for fare evasion. The person he stopped was with the Black Liberation Army and despite the fact that he himself was black, he was blue first, and paid with his life for wearing the badge. Never take any part of your job as being routine and ALWAYS wear your vest. I know I never ride alone since I have my own personal angel in heaven.
