The news of this shocked me to my core. To think that a man who whose responsibilities were to protect and serve us could do something like this is just unthinkable. My heart goes out to Officer Crain's family, and to all of the men and women of the Riverside Police Department. R.I.P Officer Crain. Semper Fi.

I have never met you yet I constantly think of you. You're family and close friends show how great of a person you are and that has taught me to enjoy the time I have with mine because you never know when it will be the last. I was impacted by you in many ways even though I never met you. May you're wife and family have ease and know that God is with them. Rest in peace

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 him, he 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.

Psalm 23 ("The Lord is My Shepherd")

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever

Deepest Sympathy to the family and friends of Police Officer Michael Crain may the spirit of Christ keep you is my prayer through the blood of Christ in Jesus name amen

As a citizen of Los Angeles and a supporter of law enforcement everywhere; These recent days and losses have left us numb; in shock and ill inside. The greater our losses, the more we must come together to share this burden. The magnitude of this darkness defies the search for words to express our pain. With tears and the utmost respect for the loss and the pain that those closest to this madness must endure. In The Name of All That Is Good, may you find strength. Dear Almighty God. Please help us.
