Reflections for Police Officer John Pawlowski

Scripture assures us that, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called [children] of God.” Matthew 5:9 ESV and “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13 ESV.

Rest in peace my brother. Sad to say that this scenario can happen quite often by stupid people that we chalenge. Our law makers would rather you wait for that 'glint of steel'before you engage, but the Supreme Court say you don't have to. And this is why our brothers and sisters are put in harms way...that split second decision that will alter our life for you shoot the poor man with the gun in his pocket, or wait. Our laws must be more clarified to ensure that we are all going home at the end of our tours. And the media should stay out of the investigation and instilling criminality.

As always we thank you for your service. My uncle Richard Lendell's likeness is displayed to the right of this heroes at The 35th district mural. Some "dirtbags", as uncle Rich would call them, saw fit to desecrate this memorial last week. Rest easy knowing that your brothers and sisters have cleared the mess, and your memory of sacrifice will never be forgotten.

I was one block away on the other side of the septa station with my partner serving a warrant that night. I herd the gun shots, but we couldn't tell where they came from with all the buildings. Then the broadcast came over J band. We arrived to see John pulled into a car and driven to Einstein Hospital. At first they said the shooter was still on the run and a flash of the description was broadcasted. My partner and I were running up and down the alley ways until everything was sorted out and an update was broadcasted.

By William Butler Yeats
I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;
Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honey-bee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.

And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight’s all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet’s wings.

I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,
I hear it in the deep heart’s core.

I never got to meet you, but I am absolutely sure you were and are an amazing person, Mr. Pawlowski.
I apologize for your family's loss, but I can tell you that they are doing well. You have nothing to worry about, I can assure you.

Mrs. Pawlowski, I am very sorry for your loss. I know I am late for apologizing and also late for a congratulations of your son. I'm sure he is a gorgeous, intelligent boy. :)

A real cop, rest well JP.

May you rest in peace John! Though we never met I lived just around the corner from you when you were growing up! I remember the night this happened I was away up the mountains with my wife & some friends, coworkers.... As soon as we heard we called HQ to see if we should return to the city to assist in the investigation. Although we were told there was no need to, that's just the way we are.... Very sobering weekend after hearing this terrible news... May God Bless your soul John.

Everytime my 4 year old son sees his mural up the park we talk about how he was a hero. Breaks my heart.
