Rest in Peace Deputy Sheriff Robert Bruce Parsons. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice protecting the citizens of Denton County, Texas. It is a shame that liberal Governor Ferguson thought so little of Texas Lawmen.

I Pray for Peace for your Family, Friends and Co-Workers. I also Pray that the scum who murdered you is burning in hell as I type this reflection. I pray that the hounds of hell are ripping his soul apart. Along with any others who granted them leniency.
