For Detective Sean Suiter:

The law-officer assigned to the homicide unit is normally a well-seasoned officer and knows the value of being able to enlist the cooperation of both suspects and the public at-large. Speaking with others is the essence of gathering information for the successful prosecution of criminals.
The homicide investigator is also placing him/herself regularly at great risk just by the nature of encountering rampant criminals who have lengthy criminal records. Danger is always present. Resistant suspects are quick to strike at the slightest hint of being taken into custody. Some don't wait a fraction of second to act-out viciously!
We regret that Sean would be the next law-officer to lose his life in the thankless effort to clean-up the mess in a place seemingly unworthy of such dedication, but for a relatively small number of people.
We pray for Sean's family, friends, and co-workers. May they be ready to reach-out to one another at this very sad time.
We are proud to render a final salute to Detective Sean Suiter a proud and fearless soldier-of-the-law.

Cpl. Ralph D. Fiorenza, (Ret.)

In Honor of your Sacrifice and for your family and friends, I salute you as a HERO!

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one who’s blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

"The Final Inspection"
The policeman stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"
The policeman squared his shoulders and said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.
But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't.....I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."

My condolences to the family and friends of Detective Sean Suiter. May you find comfort in knowing that your dear one is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every detail about him and bring him back again. Jesus told us at John 5:28,29 that there would be a resurrection. Just think of the time when you will see your loved one again, in paradise conditions, here on earth.
