Reflections for Police Officer Shawn Steven Schneider


My heart goes out to Shawn's wife, children, parents, family, friends and fellow officers. You all will be in my thoughts and prayers as you fast these difficult times, now and in the future. May you find comfort in knowing that you have a bigger "family" that is thinking of you and praying for you and in the good times and in the beautiful memories you all have shared. We lost our daughter, EOW 8/1/02, also killed by gunfire in Minneapolis, so we can understand your pain. Shawn's children can be forever proud of their daddy and I feel sadness for them knowing they will only hold him in their hearts and memories, not be held in his arms.

Officer Schneider will now be walking the heavenly beat with all the officers that have gone before him. Rest in peace. God Bless Shawn and his family.

Nothing makes me angrier than putting on my shadow band around my badge. But I do so with honor as I know that the Officer we mourn died in honor. I know that if the roles were reversed, Officer Schneider would not have hesitated to place that shadow band around his badge. I thank you for your service Brother. It is time for you to go 10-7. We have the watch from here. Thank you for your service and thank you for your commitment. You will never be forgotten. You have earned your wings. God Speed.
