Leave a Reflection

Reflections for Patrolman Derek Kotecki

It is again with a heavy heart that I try to leave a reflection for the loved ones and those in law enforcement for murdered Patrolman Kotecki. Too many notices of murdered Officers. Too little done about it.
To Patrolman Kotecki's wife and children...he is a hero. He is an angel watching over you and over Officer Benny. He lives in your heart because of love and memories. My deepest condolences to all who knew and worked with Patrolman Kotecki. God bless and protect all those in law enforcement.

May God be with Patrolman Kotecki, his wife, and children. There should be an automatic death penalty in this country for killing a police officer. I still can't believe we don't have one.
