Reflections for Trooper Werner Foerster

 

Dear Trooper Werner Foerster, I shall never forget the "Great Impact" of Love, Friendship, Admiration, Duty, Honor, and Fidelity, YOU left on my life! I've dedicated the strategy of "ICH SPECHEN!" = "I SPEAK" in German; to YOU and YOUR FAMILY in all of my very extensive investigations. "OPERATION EYES OF GOD" Launched Jan. 1983 and ongoing. And others from an even earlier time. I know that you are in Heaven because we spoke of that "Great Faith" that You had in JESUS, the Love You had for America, and Your Wife and Children! Goot Juden-Christer-Americaner und Trooper Mit GOT! = Good Judeo-Christian-American and Trooper With GOD! WERNER FOERSTER. Your friend, Brian C. P. Parkinson "The Specialist" May 2nd, 2014/1973 GOD BLESS YOUR TROOPER SON and FAMILY!!!!!!!

I have always believed that the NJ State Police were the best in the country. They face dangers that have caused the loss of these wonderful men and women. RIP Werner Foerster, the people of NJ will always remember you and pray for the arrest of the pig that did this.

Today is the 40th anniversity of your heinous murder at the hands of Joanne Chesimard. While she still goes free New Jersey has just doubled the reward for her captiure to $2M. Let us hope that this brings this soulless criminal back to be incarcerated.
Peace be with you and your family.

Rest in Peace, Werner Foerster
You had the guts to walk up to suspects and stand up to them in a gunfight, one of the classic shootouts of northeastern US history. That was impressive.

May you continue to rest in peace Trooper Foerster and to think that Chesimard is still on the loose bothers me to no end. Then to think that a Rapper who sings favorably of her was invited to the White House...ah never mind.

God Bless you and your family.

I passed over the Werner Foerster Memorial Bridge today. The memory of what happened there still burns in my mind. You have not been forgotten.

I can still remember the day that Tpr Foerster was killed. I was in high school in Sayreville,NJ but wanting to be a NJ State Trooper it had profound and forever memories of this tragic and brutal killing .

Your heroism and service is honored today on the 39th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service.

My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

I pray for solace for all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace. Rest In Peace.

Justice for your death has been long denied, but someday... We're waiting for her.

Dear Trooper Foerster,

I was in the 5th grade when I was told of your senseless murder. My father, John Genz, knew you and thought very highly of you. I remember he said you had a German accent. I know Trooper Harper was also shot with you, but survived his wound, thank God. My class made a book for him of sympathy/et well notes I remember thinking about your children and your wife and was so very sad. As a mother now, I think of the pain of your parents then, too. I will never forget you. Thank you for your service as a NJ State Trooper.

To the family,

As hard as it must've been and still be, please take comfort in knowing your beloved, Trooper Werner Foerster is with God. St. Peter said so. I pray a different fate in hellfire awaits your killer if she's not already there. If living, I pray some Navy Seal spots her in the site of his rifle.

To The Family of Trooper Foerster:
I wanted to leave my sympathies on your tragic death. I was scanning the ODMP page and came across your story on today's date. The bravery and courage you displayed will never be forgotten by your family, friends and colleagues. My dad was a New York City policeman with the 102 precinct for almost 40 years. I hope that catch that low life woman who fled like a coward to Cuba and bring her back to our country to face the justice your family deserves. Rest in peace trooper Foerster and Olav Hhashalom.

To the Family and Fellow Troopers of Werner Foerster We will not forget this Brave Warrior. May he rest in Peace, and May His family have God's Blessing of Peace in their Hearts. May his killers pay the full price for their horrific crime.

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 in such incidents & our only real comfort comes from Him. May His strength, comfort & peace continue to be the sustaining force in the lives of all who knew this beloved officer; and may it somehow help to know he is not forgotten.

Time has moved on, but we all remember what happened that day when the cowards gunned you down. I know the NJSP will never forget you and will bring the culprit to justice. I remember attending your service with my team of Narcotic Detective's in uniform . You will never be forgotten. May God continue to watch over you and your family.
