Reflections for Corporal Kenneth Jeffrey Johnson

Thank you for your service, please watch over us.

Patrolman
Brookhaven Police Department PA

Rest easy Corporal Johnson, you did a fine job while here on earth and its time for you to rest until you are reunited with your family and friends. We will continue on in your honor and pray that the individual who took you from us will pay dearly here on earth and after. To Corporal Johnson's family my heart felt sympathies are with you tonight and always.

Senior Patrol Ofc. Kevin Armstrong
Anchorage Police Dept.

I am greatly saddened at hearing the news of Cpl. Johnson's death.

I did have some contact with Johnson while working with the Sheriff's Office in Clarendon County. He was very friendly and I'm sure he was a great asset to his agency.

His presence will be sorely missed.

J. R. Ponti
South Carolina State Constable

It's a shame that a police officer is killed when they are trying to make the roads a safer place for us. My sincere condolences are sent out to Kenneth's family and friends.

James Burns
Safety Services Officer

Our prayers and thoughts go to the officer's family, friends, co-workers and department, and may God be with them to comfort them. When a true hero passes, a part of America dies too.

James T Wilson, Dispatcher
Arkansas State Police Troop A

MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS GO OUT TO CORPORAL JOHNSON'S FAMILY AND HIS WORK FAMILY. IT IS ALWAYS SUCH A LOSS TO US ALL IN THE LAW ENFORCEMENT COMMUNITY ACROSS THE UNITED STATES, TO LOSE A FELLOW TROOP. MAY GOD BLESS YOU.

Dear Corporal Johnson,

It's devastating to see that we've lost another young law enforcement officer so swiftly and senselessly. We pray for your family, friends, colleagues, and community, for we know all too well what they now face. May they take comfort in knowing that you now patrol Heaven's streets with many of God's finest, and that nothing and no one can ever harm you again. We thank you for your years of dedicated service here on earth, and may you rest peacefully in the presence of God forevermore.

With sadness and appreciation,

Today the citizens of South Carolina lost a fine Trooper, a Trooper who led by example. Today, I lost a friend. I graduated patrol school with "KJ". In the beginning we became friends and in the end we became brothers. Several months ago, I was able to speak with KJ. He spoke of his love for his family and his love for the Patrol. To the family and friends of Trooper Johnson, we as a State share your sorrow. He shall be greatly missed by us all. May god bless your family and especially your children. To us all, KJ is a HERO.

May all of our prayers go out to Cpl. Johnson's friends and especially his family. The SCHP is one of the greatest agencies in the state of South Carolina, and probably has the most guts out of any agency also to do what they do. My sincerest condolonces go out to his family....and may the coward who did this pay severely!!!!

Family, Friends and Co-Workers of Corporal Johnson,
The road to greiving is long and unwritten. No one can tell you what is the right way or the wrong way to express the so many emotions that you are feeling. Do what feels right in your heart and no one can lay blame. Your Kenneth may be gone from patrolling the streets of earth, but he is with our James and they are patrolling the golden streets of heaven.

If is not how you died that made you a hero, it was how you lived. God bless.

To the family, friends and co-workers of Corporal Johnson my heart goes out to you. South Carolina will mourn the loss of this truly remarkable trooper. My fiance' Joseph C. Rodgers was killed in South Carolina in 97, and the South Carolina Highway Patrol has been so supportive. They didn't care that Joey was a deputy when he was killed. They were still there for me because is was a law enforcement officer. I think this says alot about an agency who doesn't care what department you are with, they just care about taking care of their loved ones left behind. They South Carolina Highway Patrol is such a wonderful agency and they have taken the initiative to prepare themselves for these tragedies. They will be there for the family and co-workers of Corporal Johnson just as they were there for me. Rest in peace Corporal Johnson you will never be forgotten.

Dana Perot
Survivor of Deputy Joseph C. Rodgers

Rest in peace brother, your watch is over. May God bless your soul and your family. Another hero lost, taken away by a coward's actions. You will not be forgotten.
