Reflections for Officer Earl Harwood Scott

Thinking of your loved ones today and everyday. I know the daily struggles they face without you and the terrible pain within their hearts. God, wrap your loving arms around them and help them with their grief and let them feel your presence.
Your sacrifice has not been forgotten.

My thoughts and prayers are with your loved ones and friends on this anniversary of your EOW. Continue to keep watch over them and those still out on patrol watching over the Thin Blue Line. You will never be forgotten.

To the family and loved ones of Officer Earl Scott:

I wanted to honor and remember Earl today on the third anniversary of his tragic death. Although I never had the privilege of meeting Earl, I feel as if I know him through the loving reflections left by friends. His valor and courage will never be forgotten.

I hope that God is holding him in the sweetest part of his heart and the most gentle part of his soul.

I am sorry that Earl was robbed of his life so young, but through his heroism and the profound sense of duty with which he lived his life, he made an immeasurable difference. May his spirit continue to soar and may his memory continue to inspire.

To his father, stepmother, and siblings, I am so sorry for your loss and know that your life was forever changed by the death of your beloved son and brother. I know that he is forever in your hearts. I wish for you that you are able to live the hopes and dreams he has for your life.
I also pray for justice for Earl and all his loved ones.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Earl gave to his community and the citizens of California, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on February 17, 2006.

I will never forget the day that you were killed. I never knew you. But I was on the freeway on my way to work. It was a cold morning. I drove onto HWY 99 to head to downtown Stockton to work. There was so much traffic it was only 5:15Am. I was mad, I was going to be late for work. Then I started to get worried, I saw crime scene vans drive past me on the shoulder, CHP after CHP I lost count. I wasn't anger anymore, I didn't care if I was late for work. Then I heard on the radio that a CHP officer was gunned down. The tears ran from my face. I felt ashamed for being upset that I was going to be late for work. How dare I, when you just gave your life serving. When I did get to work there was so much discussion about you. And then the news hit, the man that took your life,someone close to him worked with me! I remember him too at our company Christmas party, he had the look of evil. Officer Scott, you will never be forgotten, and I thank you for serving and protecting as you did in your final moments. You are and will always be a hero. May God Bless you and your family and friends.

I attended Officer Scott's funeral as a representative of the Mass. State Police. To this day I think of him often and pray for his family, friends, and brother officers. In high school and college I spent 2 summers in Ripon working on my uncle's farm growing aaamons and drove over that stretch of Rte 99 many times. This Winter will be three years since Earl paid the ultimate sacrifice...but it was not in vain, he served a VERY worthwhile purpose. I Still keep friendships with some CHP that were forged on that have an awesome organization. It's funny how similar things are at each end of the 3000 mile long thin blue line. Stay safe and God bless you all. SCM

I only knew Scott for a short time while working at SCC, but became friends with him very quickly. Scott always had a smile on his face and I will never forget when he decided to leave Corrections and join CHP........You could not wipe the smile off of his face..........He will be missed but not forgotten!

Wow bro,
You've been gone a little over 2 years. I still have the news clip of your murder saved on my DTV. Why? I'm not sure. I just can't bring myself to erase it. I guess it would put the finality on your death. I still wear the CHP wrist band in your honor and will until your murderer is sentenced. Then it will be quietly placed in my memory box to hang on my "memorial wall". Know this my brother, although you were a bit of a "dweeb", I always remember your golden heart and sincere laugh. And your only a thought away from my mind bro and close to my heart.RIP my friend, see ya soon....

There hasn't been a day that's gone by since you were taken from us that you haven't been in my thoughts. I sure miss looking over the fence and seeing your garage light on. It meant I was welcome to stop by for a great conversation and a cold one. You are missed more than you could have possibly imagined. Until we meet again, rest easy brother.


November 21, 2007

It had been about 19 months since you were taken from us and you are still missed, everyday my brother! I think of our drives while still at the academy and thank God for allowing me those times and for your friendship. Jeanne often times can look at my face and know that I am thinking of you by the sorrow and anger I show.

we followed the events of the aftermath of your "routine" stop according to the press anyway on the internet. (we know there is no such thing as routine) we remember especially reading what the kids in your neighborhood had to say about you. they all enjoyed hanging out with you at your house and obviously looked up to you. i remember one little boy in particular who obviously thought you were a million bucks. perhaps one day one or more will follow your foot steps. this is your legacy.

"The Badge"
He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.
He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.
Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.
He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.
His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.
He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.
And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.
But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.
Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.
Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.
So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.
In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.
Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

Earl, when we were kids, you were a brother to me. You were always at our house....even went on family vacations with us. You picked on me so much back then. I would give anything to have you back so you could pick on me. You are forever in my heart and soul. You are in my prayers, brother.

Earl, you are truly missed by everyone at the office. I can not believe it has been over a year since this tragedy was thrust upon us by a no good criminal coward. We can only hope that the ultimate justice is served. I drive by the scene daily and the anger does not go away and I can only imagine the feelings of your brothers-in-arms that were on scene. Earl you will never be forgotten.
