Reflections for Police Officer Guy P. Gaddis

I was a young HPD officer when the call went out over the police radio on a HPD cruiser driving into a house in Bellaire ,Texas. Life flight landed where Officer Gaddis was transported to Hermann Hospital. I still remember the loud crying screams echoing throughout the hospital hallways when Officer Gaddi's mother was told of her son's death. I will never forgot this sad day 24 years later.

I still tell the young officers today in the training program as FTS and when i trained/evaluated rookies about Officer Gaddis line of duty death. R.I.P SIR

Myself and Guy were both stationed at Fort Bliss Texas at the same time. He was in the 978th MP Company and I was assigned to Center MP Company. Later we both attended the Houston Police Academy together. We graduated in October of 1992. When I found out Guy was killed, a little bit of me died with him. It had a profound effect on me for Officer Safety, as I became a Field Trainer and Evaluator. His death influenced not only me, but every rookie I trained. I am no longer in Law Enforcement now. From the sideline I watch those who still are in uniform. I see a lot of young new faces, that have stood up and said it's my turn and I will watch over you while you sleep. I think of those who lost their lives in the line of duty, and those who will succumb to the dangers of this calling. This career choice is like no other. This is a calling! Law Enforcement is a life style. A warrior to hold back evil. Someone who lives by a higher standard. Not everyone can do this job. For those of you who complain, and gripe about the police. I say step forward like those before you and be prepared that some day you may make the selfless sacrifice Guy has made. A true hero who has served his country and his community honorably. Rest in peace brother.

An odd thing happened to me this morning. Until seeing this I had forgotten what day it was. You know I will never forget you. I think about you daily, we speak often, and I still occasionally shed a tear thinking about you but since the monster was put down 2 years ago I spend less time thinking about this day and more time thinking about all the others.

With the help of Facebook I was able to get back into contact with Rose and Stephanie. A group of us are making a trip soon to get together with them and make sure they know we are here for them always. I'm looking forward to catching up with Rose and getting to know Stephanie, I haven't see her since she was a baby. Going to spend the day swapping stories, laughing, and probably a little crying. I know Stephanie already know how many lives you touched from things she h read here but it's time the little girl you never got to meet hears it first hand.

Miss you Super Rookie

I am the mother of a young officer killed in the line of duty. I am glad to say this murder got what he deserved. It will not bring Officer Gaddis back, at least this man has paid for his actions. So wish KY would stop it catch and release penalty and go back to the death penalty. Prayers to Officer Gaddis's family and the child he never got to meet.

I'm so glad this murderer has been put to death. I was so sad when this happened and have been waiting all these years for this day. I have never forgotten what happened to this young officer. He was to young to die. May he rest in peace.

I hope what occurred today, even though the act will never bring your loved one back, brings you a step closer to peace. Unfortunately it won't matter whatsoever to the family of the killer.

In the name of many mexicans living in Mexico, that think our government should had sent condolences to his family instead of asking for mercy for a cop killer. Im so sorry for your loss, shame on my country that tries to defend irresponsible human beings like Tamayo was. Justice was served, I wish my country would take the trash out like the US does.

Officer Guy Gaddis - may you rest in peace now, your murderer has paid the price for taking your life and breaking your family's heart. I hope Tamayo had time to repent for his crime. His poor family must also be devastated as this crime was no fault of theirs. may you all find peace.

Last night, January 22, 2014 Officer Gaddis' family received justice for his murder so many years ago. There has been much debate/delays over the past twenty years by misguided anti-death penalty advocates to delay this killers execution. Thank God the leaders of Texas believe in enforcing their laws and carrying out the penalties. It is time for the family to rest. They have suffered much. In time Guy will meet the child he never knew. Be at peace brother.

Justice was done for you today, Guy. I was in the HPD academy when you were murdered. Your murder was not in vain as it saved many future officers' lives. Rest in peace, now, sir.
