We were in the Academy together and I would often run into you in the 75..you could've went upstairs and been a Det but it wasn't for you. You liked the streets which says a lot about you. Not many men could do over 20 years on the streets of ENY. I pray for you and your family and think about you often. Rest in Peace warrior.

I didn't know you, but I lost four friends LOD from '86. And that's leaving out 9/11. Straight street incidents. Well, there's never a good time for a death of one of ours. But right around Christmas? So I think of you every year right about now, even without knowing you personally- because I don't need to, you're my Brother. two of OUR FAMILY have been assassinated (12/20/14) I'm retired a long time; And I had a good night planned. But I couldn't watch the movie, the wine sucked and she went to bed. And instead, I sit here with cigar in hand, talking about my brothers and writing you. I don't care who reads; I needed to write, to talk with you, so you know we rememeber... Therre's things you belong to.. And there's things you're WITH. I had (respectfully) heard they called you "Figs". Well, Merry Christmas, my Newton! Have your back in the afterlife!--- Kaycheck.

A radio run changed the lives of many.
New York City mourned the loss of a hero,
A family mourned the loss of a son, brother ~ father.
A catching order would have me bear the title
"Case Detective".
Today 05-29-2013 the last of the criminals have been handed his verdict ~ GUILTY.
It was the determination of my fellow Detectives and Police Officers throughout Brooklyn North and beyond that helped put together a case against these criminals that would someday pay for their crime.
Many hours of reviewing evidence ~ interviews of cops and witnesses ~
The Brooklyn District Attorneys office ~
Homicide Bureau Chief Kenneth Taub and
Assistant District Attorney Howard Jackson
would create a case that would be heard
by 12 men and women.
New Yorkers and the Figoski family came to learn what happened on the night of December 12, 2011. Details of a crime that changed our lives forever.
Today the verdict was GUILTY. The jurors heard the case and through their commitment towards justice then handed down a verdict. GUILTY.
It will take years to heal and yes the scars will remain to remind us ~ our loss.
Detective Peter J Fisgoski will live in all of us he touched.
To the members of the 75th Precinct - My family in the 75 Squad - To all detectives and police officers involved - Thank You.
To a family that showed true courage, patience and love ~
GOD BLESS THE FIGOSKI FAMILY ~
GOD BLESS DETECTIVE PETER J FIGOSKI

The NYPD has been a part of my 86 years. My Uncle Jim Leggett rose to Chief of Detectives in the 1950's. My brother,Jim Cunningham, served 30 years. My grand nephew,Steve Blanshan,is working in the eastside precinct
50,s. Therefore,many prayers are offered for the safety of all the NYPD.

Pete,
You were a true gentleman and professional. We went through field training together as rookies back in 1989-1990 in FTU3. We used to call you Pistol Pete and you would just smile.
Watch over us, until we meet again brother.

A Prayer for you,
Dear Father,
It was only a moment,
but
In that moment a madman walked in
In that moment the world was changed.
In that moment countless Lives, were utterly altered.
In that moment our hearts began breaking.
Now in these moments we speak names previously unknown:
With reverence, we utter their names
In a moment our Line of BLUE stretched out across the nation.
That hard, fast and steady Line of BLUE has been breached.
In these moments help us as we have all become a part of the
Line of BLUE.
Dry our tears, comfort our broken hearts, strengthen our weaken knees, cure our confusion.
May the Line of BLUE draw a circle around us pulling back our hope.
May the Line of BLUE be a shield before us.
May the Line of BLUE carry us into the moments of our future.
A future made sure by their sacrifice in a moment.
It was only a moment and they were gone but
we and the Line of BLUE go on…

In honor of the fallen.

I read some news coverage of the verdicts for your killer and the get away driver and was saddened and angry that you, your family and friends, and your department did not receive the justice that was deserved. Your family must be very disappointed and upset and they are in my thoughts and prayers.

Thank you for your service and your sacrifice.
