Reflections for Police Officer Thomas Richard Meyers

I love you Dad. The last 3 days were pretty hard. The man who cared less about pretty much anything from the moment he entered our lives is out of prison due to a stupid 85% rule. He did not qualify for parole yet is out on parole. We continue the fight to make sure he completes the punishments the courts gave him along with criminal fines and civil court financial burdens owed. Love you always.

No one prepares us for loss and how can we it’s different for all. Grant some basics hit us all and when people tell us it will sneak around the corner and hit you like a 10 ton truck that you never see coming you think that won’t be me. T1 I miss you so and wish we were still making memories together. LOVE YOU T2

I had the privilege of working with Tom at both Gladstone and KCMOPD. I believe he joined KCPD about the time I left. I would still see him from time to time up "north" and Tom was always full of life. Smiling constantly and helping everyone. You are definitely missed.

Rest in peace brother, you have not been forgotten. I am honored to send out my "No Parole for Cop Killers" letter tomorrow. Thank you for your service and for your sacrifice. God bless the family, friends, and former co-workers of Officer Meyers during this time of re-opening of the wounds that have most assuredly never healed.

The passing of yet another year and you are missed even more I think. We get to see bittick yet again this year but we are trying to bring the big guns. I have gotten Chief Forte and the prosecutor to attend the parole hearing this year. I'm trying to do my best my love to make sure he stays put until he has learned his lesson but don't think he will ever take the blame. Please stay close and help me thru this hearing yet again it just gets harder and more stressful. Now on to fun things...........hope you are enjoying your birthday party with all your other buddies............HAPPY BIRTHDAY YOU AWESOME MARINE I love you more today than yesterday.

I am trying to leave as many reflections as I can on all of my fellow colleagues if if I didn't know them. It will take me a while to do this but I will get it done eventually. We must pay our respects to the men and women who bravely put on that uniform every day (as well as the ones who don't wear the uniform) who risk giving their lives to serve the community. Rest in peace and know you will not be forgotten.

RIP Officer Meyers. Your tour is done, but you will never be forgotten. I just wish your family did not have to put up with those stupid parole hearings every few years and having to re live the pain of your loss all over again. There should be no parole for someone who takes another's life whether it is intentional or due to their own recklessness.

I just found this, otherwise would have posted long ago. I cried so hard that day when I heard it on the news. Tom was more than just a friend, he was a Dad to me at times. I am so thankful for everything he did for me and I miss those days of going around and doing things with him. Oh those oh so many nights when he'd take me to a neighborhood watch meeting to steal his breifcase so people would get to describe me, those chocolate malts at hardees and talking about electronics. I never got to have a career in law enforcement but have such a greater knowledge, understand, and respect for those that do. I also had the honor of going to high school with a beautiful young lady, who's friendly smile and personality always made me smile. I'm sure Tracy got those qualities from both her wonderful parents.

After more than 12 years, I cannot drive past tiffany springs parkway without Thiinking of Tom and not offer a silent prayer for him and his family. Also in the same drive on I-29, I round the bend go under the bridge and look to my left where Craig Schultz passed away offering a similar prayer for him and his family. I hope the years since their passings have brought both families peace and the love of god. Both Tom and Craig were fantastic officers and still thought of by the community they died serving.

When my kids were real young, their dad and I were in a fast food restaurant on Barry Road near the "yellow police station". Office Meyers was there having lunch. He invited us over to the station for a tour of the facilities as the kids were interested. Such a nice guy. A short time later a drunk guy from Platte City mowed him down as he attempted to help with traffic on a bad day. I don't even think he was on duty. What a senseless tragedy.
