Reflections for Private First Class Elizabeth Licera Magruder

Officer Magruder: My gratitude and salute to you for your dedication and sacrifice. I pray this occasion be used to open the eyes of all my brother and sister officers across this Nation to the need of our coming closer together and that we need ever so badly to unite and look out for each other, be respectful of one another, and continue to be faithful to our special calling of Law Enforcement Duties. God Bless your Loved ones and His Love and Peace be with them all.

The law enforcement family in the great state of Maryland suffers yet another tragedy. A week following the death of Baltimore Police Officer Sheffield, two more from our family are killed senselessly. The thoughts and prayers of the entire Baltimore County Police Department go out to the friends, and family of Private MacGruder and Corporal Armaud, may you both rest in enternal peace. And may the scum that killed you burn in eternal hell.

THE POLICEMAN’S LAST INSPECTION ...

THE POLICE Officer STOOD AND FACED Her GOD, WHICH MUST ALWAYS COME TO PASS. SHE HOPED HER SHOES WERE SHINING, JUST AS BRIGHTLY AS HER BRASS. "STEP FORWARD NOW, POLICE OFFICER. HOW SHALL I DEAL WITH YOU? HAVE YOU ALWAYS TURNED THE OTHER CHEEK? TO MY CHURCH HAVE YOU BEEN TRUE?"

THE POLICE OFFICER SQUARED her shoulders and said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain’t. Because those of us who carry badges can’t always be a Saint. I’ve had to work most Sundays, and at times my talk was rough, and sometimes I’ve been violent because the streets are awfully tough. But I never took a penny that wasn’t mine to keep, though I worked a lot of overtime when the bills just got to steep. And I never passed a cry for help, though times I shook with fear. And sometimes, God forgive me, I’ve wept many tears. I know I don’t deserve a place among the people here, they never wanted me around except to calm their fear. If you’ve a place for me Lord, it needn’t be so grand. I never expected or had too much, but if you don’t, I’ll understand."


There was silence all around the throne where the Saints had often trod. As the police officer waited quietly, for the judgement of her God. "Step forward now, Officer, you’ve borne your burdens well. Come walk a beat on Heaven’s streets, you’ve done your time in hell."
