Officer Guy P. Gaddis, Honored devotee to mankind. Your place at the right hand of God is secure, your place in the hearts and minds of those who loved you, who knew you, who stood with you and like me, who never had the honor of knowing you is assured. Know that the life you lived and the lives you touched will carry on, in your name and in your honor. Today, dawn breaks over a world better for your time here and better for the removal of your killer. A life taken is not a replacement for a life lost. But a life taken for a life stolen is Justice. Rest in peace, Officer Gaddis. I hope there is some solace for the hurting hearts of your loved ones.

No words can ever express, the lost of a priceless gift of life such as Mr. Gaddis. God be with you and your family.
It is a shame the horrible act that Mr. Tamayo did, its a shame for our Hispanic community.
My prayers to Mr., Gaddis' Family.

May God now serve justice also today with Mr. Tamayo.

God how I love Texas and respect the values of the South! They stand by their police officers. I hope the Gaddis family and his friends at HPD find peace, now that his killer has been executed. I am embarrassed by my liberal State's former Senator.

God bless you and your family. Can you imagine all the life he has missed--he missed meeting his first and only child, missed growing old with his wife, missed growing his family and making memories that would have impacted so many people. And for what? What gave this man the right to kill an entire human being who mattered--whom had a family who depended on him. They had to do life without him. Its insulting--the signature to stay this execution--yes, sickening. As if his life meant nothing and all and we should forget that Guy once lived, breathed, loved and laughed and it was all cut short because of one person who views life delicately at best. May God give Guy's family strength and some kind of healing tonight. I give no condolences to the murderer.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Officer Gaddis. I can't imagine the pain you've experienced over the last twenty years awaiting closure by the execution of his cold-blooded murderer. Justice delayed is not justice denied. Please take solace in the fact that Officer Gaddis will NEVER be forgotten and will ALWAYS be a hero!

I worked with people coming over from Mexico. My question to some of them was "what can be done in Mexico to help the fight against the vicious cartels?" The surprising answer from some of them was, "enact the death penalty in Mexico!" Why did we wait so long to execute this murderer? Where Guy is, this animal can not go. Good riddance to a cold blooded killer. He is getting his comeuppance at this time. (Cristobal Lopez)

Somebody killed a policeman today,
and a part of America died.
A piece of our country he swore to protect,
will be buried with him at his side.

The suspect that shot him will stand up in court,
with counsel demanding his rights.
While a young widowed mother must work for her kids,
and spend many long, lonely nights.

The beat that he walked was a battle field too,
just as if he'd gone off to war.
Though the flag of our nation won't fly at half mast,
to his name they will add a gold star.

Yes, somebody killed a policeman today,
in your town or mine.
While we slept in comfort behind our locked doors,
a cop put his life on the line.

Now his ghost walks a beat on a dark city street,
and he stands at each new rookie's side.
He answered the call, of himself gave his all,
and a part of America died

I just want to say that finally JUSTICE was served...i believe that people like Tamayo should serve the death penalty. Just cuz they dont have any fellings for what they do...i believe that everyone that kills should pay and be convicted with the death penalty....
Thank god that Texas has a dead penalty for all those scums that want to do something stupid might think about it twice...and for the family of Officer Guy Gaddis God bless yall always and forever...Rest In Peace Officer Guy Gaddis...thank you for the hard work you did in our state...god bless you...

Ciertamente si el hombre lo asesino, es justo que sea sentenciado a pena de muerte, y ojalá en México también se pongan las pilas, y exijan que el policia que mato a un inmigrante incluso en territorio mexicano, sufra la misma pena que Edgar, porque no creo que por ser un inmigrante le de el derecho al maldito racista de asesinar al joven.
