I'm sitting at home sick today. Going through YouTube videos I came across this heartbreaking video of Ofc. Richardson's murder. I realize it's been 5 years ago and I didn't know him but I shed tears when I saw how senseless and depraved this murder was. I am so sorry this happened. I'm especially sorry for his wife and children.

I attended the local Warrior Mindset training by Lt. Col. Dave Grossman and Calibre Press a few weeks ago. Scott was mentioned during the training seminar, as well as others who have given their lives in service. Thank you Scotty for your sacrifice and you are still remembered. My prayers continue to go to the family and the agency in this tragic loss and the future you must face without Scotty present. May God Bless and keep you.

Amelyn: I hope you are still coming here periodically to see that Scotty is not forgotten. I have moved around the corner, but still sometimes drive down the old street. I can see Scotty mowing the lawn or playing in the yard with the boys. I thought about you all over XMas...."celebrating" the holidays one year after Scotty was called from this earthly life. I think about him each time I pass through Aiken..just like today as I drove to Atlanta. I miss having Scotty next door and knowing his watchful eye fell on my home, just like it fell on the Aiken community while he was on duty. I miss our friendly chats over the fence. And I miss watching him with your boys. I miss the four of you too. I hope to see you all soon, and hope life is becoming more settled. Rest assured, Scotty is still in our hearts and we keep his memory alive. Call me sometime or stop by when you are in the old neighborhood.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Aiken Department of Public Safety and Scotty's family, especially during this Holiday Season. It is hard to believe that a year has passed already. Scotty, although time goes on, the memory of your wonderful Spirit will last forever!

Thank you again for your service and sacrifice! You are truly a Hero!

I come to the ODMP often to remember my late fiance Dennis. Every time I come here it breaks my heart to know that yet another officer has fallen and that yet another family has to live their lives without the officer they loved. My heart goes out to everyone who knew and loved Officer Richardson. Know that you are not alone in the "journey" that you walk. Should you ever need anything please don't hesitate to contact me. (The Davis Co. Sheriff's Office in Iowa will always know how to reach me. I can also be found on Face Book.) You will be in my thoughts.

From reading the reflections left for Scotty he sounds like he was a great man with a beautiful spirit. Those of you who knew him in life were so blessed to have been able to share in it. I hope that you will all continue to find a way to celebrate and remember Scotty's life and the MAN that he was. Remember that Scotty's life was about so much more than the way he died. Scotty will continue to live on as long as we continue to remember him.

Officer Richardson, thank you for helping to make this world a little safer for us all. YOU will not be forgotten. Please continue to watch over all of us as only you can. If you happen to bump into my late fiance Dennis up there give him a big hug for me and the kids. It's been nine years and he's still very much missed and forever loved.

Wishing you brighter and better days,


Jocelyne :)

I can't believe we are experiencing the loss of you and Sandy in less than two months. I know you welcomed her with open arms Scotty. You two watch over us as we begin to heal in the days to come. You will forever be missed. Rest in peace my friend. We'll take it from here.
