Rest in Peace Police Officer Peter Howard. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice Protecting the citizens of Fort Worth, Texas.

I Pray for Peace for your Family, Friends and Co-Workers. I also Pray the scum who murdered you burns forever in hell along with that sorry excuse for a Governor who granted too much comfort to murderous outlaws.
