Reflections for Public Safety Officer Keith Lawrence

 

RIP Keith Lawrence. I used to play basketball with him and his older brother, Kevin, at Glenwood Park in Moorpark, CA in the early 1990s. Their Dad would sometimes play too. Might have been the coolest group of guys I've ever met. Keith was always so upbeat and friendly. It's also no surprise that he got really good at basketball...like really good. And that he went in Law Enforcement. A good dude. The good ones do seem to be taken too soon. And he was a good one. No doubt.

As we enter 2015 National Police Week, a week when all of American Law Enforcement remembers those that paid the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty, I thank you for your service and sacrifice. We are a better department as a result of your service and I am a better man having known you. May you and Monica rest in peace knowing that you both will never be forgotten.

I was online collecting information for local agencies for friend that's being discharged from the Army. I went over to the USC DPS site and found saw their rememberance section for you and your fiancee.

You had already left this world when I was assigned along with my unit to protect another potential victim of that coward that couldn't face you as a man. The same COWARD went on to destory the lives of two other fellow L.E. and leave pain in his wake.

And just like a COWARD he took his own life rather than face the TRUTH of his own stupidity and failures as a MAN.

Rest in peace young man, rest well....

I knew Public Safety Officer's Fiancee and her father. I went to high school with her and saw her father pass by or at her basketball games. She was a good person an knew she would find someone of the same qualities.

I remember kcal9's coverage if his death looking at it as just another homicide news report until the breaking news saying the suspect was a former LAPD cop, and that there was a manhunt. Me wanting to be an LAPD cop, was shocked. The next day before school my mom told me he killed a riverside officer, my heart sank, that same day an officer from the Montebello police department came to our school to talk about safety, later that week I heard that a San Bernardino detective was shot and killed. These officers sacrifice will never be forgotten.

When we read of unfortunate situations that officer Lawrence and ms. Quan were confronted with we pause and think of them being in God's
Memory. How we agree with the patriarch Job-'If a abledbodied man(woman) dies can he (they) live again?' Later he says (yes) God has a
Longing to bring them back. May they sleep in peace till then

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!
