Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Ricky Leon Kinchen

Saint Michael, heaven's glorious commissioner of police,who once so neatly and successfully cleared God's premises of all its undesirables, look with kindly and professional eyes on your earthly force.

Give us cool heads, stout hearts, and uncanny flair for investigation and wise judgment.

Make us the terror of burglars, the friend of children and law-abiding citizens, kind to strangers, polite to bores, strict with law-breakers and impervious to temptations.

You know, Saint Michael, from your own experiences with the devil, that the police officer's lot on earth is not always a happy one; but your sense of duty that so pleased God, your hard knocks that so surprised the devil, and your angelic self-control give us inspiration.

And when we lay down our night sticks, enroll us in your heavenly force, where we will be as proud to guard the throne of God as we have been to guard the city of all the people. Amen.

To our brother in blue may you rest in peace. Your family, friends, and co workers are in our thoughts and prayers.

God Bless

Today is 02/27/02 and your picture was on Nightline tonight as they explained the case once again. The defense is doing their part as is the state but in the end I only hope everyone remembers that you were the victim.


I'll never forget you "pretty Ricky", as Deputy Cost would always say.
