I don't even see why your killers are appealing due to the near impossibility of getting a death sentence commuted in texas. At least the leader of the group and I think 1 other decided to be honorable by waiving their appeals and apologizing at their executions. The other guys who murdered you are only delaying the inevitable by appealing.

Hard to believe it has been 15 years. While our family was home warm making Christmas memories, just a few miles away this terrible, senseless act was going down. I will leave our Christmas Eve service this evening and drive past the memorial site just like I do each year. RIP Officer Hawkins. Your sacrifice is not forgotten.

One more of your murderers was put to death today. Just a little closer to justice being served. May your spirit rest in peace.

Justice delayed is not justice denied. Hopefully the execution of this monster will help bring a little bit of closure and healing to the family, friends, and co-workers of this hero. I salute you, Officer Hawkins! You will FOREVER be a hero and will NEVER be forgotten!

Having seen the story of your death on a TV show, I couldn't believe just how tragic your death was, an ambush that you had no chance at all of beating. May you rest in peace Officer, your partners will take it from here. God bless your family and the Irving Police department.

Today is National Police Officers Memorial Day. I've known a lot of officers through the years, but the one who had the biggest impact on me was one that I never even met. When I was only 4 years into my dispatch career, I was working a cold Christmas Eve in a neighboring city when Officer Hawkins left dinner with his family and responded to that burglar alarm. Even though we were a few cities away, I can still remember the agonizing messages and updates that Irving sent out as the event unfolded. The pain in their voices took all the joy out of a sleepy Christmas Eve shift. That night it really hit home how important my job as a dispatcher was, that I was sending my friends into situations that they may not return from. That even routine events could turn tragic in a heartbeat and we must always be ready. I've tried to stress that to every trainee that I've ever had. That night really formed me into the dispatcher that I am today, and as I start my career on the other side of the radio, its a grim reminder about the evil that is out there. Godspeed Officer Hawkins.

I stumbled upon this site while thinking of Officer Hawkins. Though I did not personally know Officer Aubrey Hawkins. I can't help but feel somewhat connected to him. Maybe it's because we share the same last name i don't know.... Though I think of him and his family often, And even more so this time of year. I always wonder how his son Andrew is doing, And can only imagine how difficult it must have been on him not to of had his father there for his ball games, his first girlfriend and graduation of high school. Though I'm sure Office Hawkins has found a way to reveal himself to Andrew in giving him comfort in the difficult times of his life. I feel his spirit still lives on thur his son and ALL of the men and women officers who keeps our City of Irving a safer place to raise our children and to live.

Officer Aubrey Hawkins' death had an impact on me although I never met the man. I was working for a TV station in Irving, Texas that night and was just a couple miles away from where the incident took place. I remember hearing about it on the news at around 0500 that morning and I cried at the thought of his wife and son waking up on Christmas morning to find that daddy was gone.

I damned the "Texas Seven" and wished them all to burn in hell.

I became a Police Officer the next year and frequently thought about Officer Hawkins. Every Christmas Eve since 2000 I pray for Officer Hawkins and his family. If I am working I type out a short message about Officer Hawkins over our CRIMES chat for other Officers to see.

May God bless you and your family Officer Hawkins.

My heart ached horribly as I watched Officer Hawkins hug his little boy on the video included in the episode of Criminal Pursuit on the Texas Seven. I know you are a grown up now son, but I hope you feel your dad close to you in everything you do. Watching over you, protecting you.... I know he's there because if anything ever happened to me, I know I would stay with my children to protect them until the day their time came to join me. Blessings to you and your family.

I have just came across this terrible story on television and am deeply saddened for the officer and his family. This story brought me to tears . I pray for him and his family and know that god has a special job in heaven for Aubrey, watching over his family and all the great officers on patrol risking their lives everyday to keep peace where all others sleep in peace every day. May Aubreys family have lots of faith peace and love and know that he is in heaven watching over them and waiting for them to join him in heaven. He and his family are Angels among all of us in law enforcement. God bless
