Reflections for Police Officer Domenick J. Infantes, Jr.

Dom, was a recruit who I had the pleasure of teaching in the Jersey City Police Academy. We became friends soon after he graduated and I do mean friends. His actions the day that he died were downright courageous. He will always have a special place in my heart and my memory. Rest easy my friend.

I attended your services. The act of trying to help while not even working struck me deeply. May god hold you and your family close and give them comfort. God bless you.

Thank you for trying to protect those children. You were definitely blindsided. Officer Infantes. May God be with you and at this time of loss, may God be with your family.

Rest in Peace.

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.
GOD Bless

Seven days ago was the anniversary of your passing. Nine days ago our nation celebrated our 238th birthday and those who know and love you best mourned the 13 anniversary of your vicious murder at the hands to two filthy animals that the courts apparently either took pity on, or committed a crime in addition to your murder. Either way, whomever was responsible for allowing your killers free, I hope they are living a full life of guilt over it. Damn them.

Officer Infantes, you were doing what was right, you were trying to stop an act of violence upon another person who was trying to stop an wrongful act. How sad and infuriating that you should have been so brutally taken from your family, friends and the City of Jersey City. Your family is in my prayers.

To your brother, I pray he is safe and realizes that you are always close by.

God Bless and may you Rest forever in Peace, Brother.

I did not know Dominick, as well as others since I retired before he became a Police Officer. I knew some of his family and want to let them know that no Police Officer killed in the line of duty, is EVER forgotten. Rest in Peace my Brother.

Thinking of you and all of your loved ones. You have not been forgotten as true heroes never die. Continue to keep watch over your family for I know that the pain will never leave their broken hearts for as long as they walk this earth. You will never be forgotten.

Hey brother

Its been a long time since I have posted on here. I know you know that I did not forget, I think of you every day of my life. The boys are getting so big now. Little Domenick has your personality, its pretty amazing. Jude looks just liek I did when I was little, I think its great that they get to share birthdays like we did.
I still share mine with you, I just do it more privately. You know, while time flies by and I get older and my kids grow up, There is just that part of me that wants to be the little kid waiting for his big brother. I am so upset that I can never get that back. I would do anything for one more moment in your presence.

I wish I had your help and guidance in so many ways. Besides Suzanne and I and the kids, everything else pretty much fell apart. I know it is all out of my control, but it still hurts the same. I am lucky to have what I have at home because it makes me happy. I just wish you could see it.

I miss you brother.

I remember this day as if it were yesterday.The pain on the families faces, the funeral..The feeling about how it happened the wishing that the suspects died...all flourish back. This loss as with any loss of an officer is tragic. I wish his family well. I wish his friends, family and those that witnessed his pain-Peace

It's been ten years, but today it seems like yesterday. I have feelings of anger and disbelief, but the strongest one being saddness. I only got to really know you when Kev and I started dating, but I knew immediately what a wonderful person you were and why everyone loved to be around you. I remember vividly the barbecue we had at our apartment in Lodi. You were in the yard telling stories, like only you could tell them, with about 20 people sitting around you laughing hysterically! What an entertainer! You were one in a million and had a heart of gold. I feel very lucky to have known you! We miss you terribly!

Bro

Its been almost a year since I have posted to you. I don't know, as time goes by, common sense would say that the hurt goes away, or at least gets a bit less intense, I think that is BS. While I am able to put it aside and live my life, and boy do I have some life. I have a great wife and two of the most fantastic children ever born. I just wish for one second, I could be able to see you hold them or interact with them. They need you in their life just like I still do. A a kid and a young man growing up by your side, you were my everything, literally my everything.
You had such a golden touch, everyone just loved you everywhere you went. It definitely is a trait that I wish I had, but clearly don't hehe.
Ten years later, while I am able to compartmentalize the hurt inside of me, I hate when it creeps out. it is still so strong, as intense and as crazy as when I first saw you in the ER. To this day I am devastated that you are not with me anymore. Maybe it is selfish, but I don't care really. I know you are with me in everything I do and I feel your guidance at times, but I just wish for one second I could see you, hear you, touch you,, anything. I miss you so much and I just want you to know that I will love you always.

I miss you my brother

I read about this on JClist and felt I just had to say thank you. What a crazy world, but men like officer Dom make it saner.

Then I got the news that you were doing what you always do...keeping the peace....then you were taken from us.....from those scumbags..for the first time in my life I was embarassed to say i was part Filipino...they took my friend away...you don't even know that I always visit you..my father my buddy..my pal..knew how I felt about you & knew how mad I was that they got away with hurting you..So to you Dominick the Teddy Bear with the smile & Daddy..please take care of my friend...with the big gentle smile....all my love & prayers to the Infantes family..xoxo
