30 years??? Really? I guarantee that Officer Parete will have served more time in a hospital bed, then this guy will spend in prison!! I'm sorry you sacrificed so...and, I thank you for your sacrifice. Rest well officer, you have earned it. Carpe Diem

I am a former Buffalonian who attended a fund raiser at the Convention Center for Officer Parete and have proudly displayed the cap I purchased on the dashboard of my car ever since. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. I work as a psychiatric RN at a jail in Monroe County, Rochester, NY and have several family members and friends who have or continue to serve proudly in law enforcement in the Western NY region. Thank you for your dedicated service and the ultimate sacrifice you made. You will not be forgotten.

Only "30 years in prison"...what a tragedy that a valiant officer is murdered and her partner critically wounded, and our 'system' only gives 30 years.

Another tragic loss of a true hero. I am confident that you have found peace and that your suffering is no more. I am appalled that the individual responsible for your death only received 30 years and will continue to fight, in your name and the names of all the other heroes that have made the ultimate sacrifice, while protecting others. R.I.P., Patty!

My deepest condolences to the family, members of the department, and those served, at the loss of this officer. May faith, family, friends and time join together to ease everyone’s pain at this time of loss.

While many other career choices were certainly available, this officer chose to protect his fellow man, and for this we give everlasting thanks. As the Good Lord hath said, “Blessed are the Peacemakers.”

Thank you for your service, your convictions and moral character, as well as your devotion to duty. May you now rest in peace, knowing your fellow brothers and sisters will watch over your family and continue the Watch!

Though I never knew her, she was part of my Law Enforcement family and I will mourn this deep loss the rest of my life. My heart aches with all the losses we have suffered, and continue to suffer, through the years. God is our only peace through such incidents & He will judge the guilty. May family & friends feel the presence of the "God of All Comfort" as they endure the distressing days ahead. I join them in their agonizing grief & remember them in my prayers.

Another senseless tragedy
Another day of grief,
Another day of praying
To help us find relief.

Relief from bitter anguish
Relief from rage so great,
Relief from lenient justice
Which continues to seal our fate.

Relief from heartache’s torment
As we continue on,
Oh, the awesome loss of brotherhood
Now that you are gone.

Though our hearts are deeply broken
And our tears forever flow,
There’s a comforting assurance
That now with God you go.

We know that you are welcome
Now at Heaven’s gate,
While meeting brothers & sisters
Who also met such fate.

The family of Law Enforcement
Knows no distance here or there,
And we recall in comfort
You await us there.
