God, filled with mercy, dwelling in the heavens' heights,
bring proper rest beneath the wings of your Lord,
amid the ranks of the holy and the pure,
illuminating like the brilliance of the skies the soul of Christopher Morton who went to his eternal place of rest.
May You who are the source of mercy shelter him beneath Your wings eternally,
and bind his soul among the living, that he may rest in peace. And let us say: Amen.

I left a comment earlier but I thought those words I left do not show enough respect or are not worthy to show tribute to such a man. Officer Morton is an american hero. He was deployed and kept out enemy at bay taking the fight to them instead of letting them fight here in our streets. He served as a Police officer and again showed loyalty and caring for his fellow man and that alone speaks volumes. That can't be taught but it can only come from the purest of hearts. A warriors heart. To the parents and siblings thank you for bringing and sharing such a hero for all the world to see. I read this quote somewhere but thinking about you son it feels right to say. In Valor there is hope. I wished I had better worlds that were worthy enough . My respect and prayers to the Morton family always.

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 whos 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.

Thank you Ofcr. Morton for your service and sacrifice. Your extended family at Adcom911 salutes you. God bless your family, friends, and law enforcement family as they struggle to move forward in the wake of your loss.

Such a heartfelt loss!! Especially after hearing (on the news) the radio traffic where he speaks of his injuries. I retired after 21 1/2 years and attended numerous funerals for officers in Utah. Always tragic!! I pray for strength for the surviving officers who were hurt during this incident and their families, as well as for officer Morton's family. I want to include the dispatch center as well. My wife retired after 30 + years as a dispatcher for police and fire. What a tragic set of events for them as well.

To everyone, my heart breaks over this event. When a Sheepdog, a man or woman who lives daily willing to sacrifice their life in order to protect or rescue or serve someone else, we are bonded to that person and they to us by way of calling whether knowing each other or not.

Our God is a Mighty WARRIOR! Jesus was depicted on earth with the nature of a Lamb and a Lion! As a Lamb He was gentle, meek and drew people into Himself.

As a Lion, he was ferocious! When he “roared” all of heaven and earth took note. Just like when the Lion roars in the wild. The entire animal kingdom takes note and immediately defers in respect to the power and authority of the Lion.

Let’s join together and seek the Lord while he may be found (Isaiah 55:6) and ask Him to roar and place evil on notice. He commands everything. The number of warrior angels in His army is Limitless! Let’s ask Him to deploy legions of warring angels to cover every LEO, public servant, soldier, etc. on every shift they serve. That angels would be present in cars, protecting as they’re walking up and protecting as they respond to calls and that every presence of evil and would-be harm would shutter in fear and be driven back by this.

I believe we can turn away this attack that has been launched against [us] our brothers and sisters serving. Set aside time every day and let’s move our Lords heart with compassion and see Him respond mightily in this!
