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!

My prayers are for the family, friends, co workers and those morning and associated with the death of officer Christopher Morton. That God will provide comfort and peace to all suffering the loss of Christopher. Gods word provided in Joshua 1:9 encourages all those who are challenged in tough times to be strong and know that the Lord will be with you where ever you go. Out of loss comes something of beauty.

Members of the Westerville, Ohio Division of Police understand this pain. To honor Officers Tony Morelli and Eric Joering, our staff asks that everyone offer condolences and share this link. The Morelli, Joering and our Police families received love and support from all over the world when Tony and Eric were killed in the line of duty. That provided strength during that tragic time.

We ask that everyone send that same level of love and support to the immediate family of Officer Christopher Ryan Morton and the extended law enforcement family of the Clinton, Missouri Police Department.

The two additional officers who were shot are in our thoughts and prayers for a full and speedy recovery.

End of Watch Tuesday, March 6, 2018.


Rest in Peace brother and watch over us. We will protect and serve from here on in your memory.


I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.
