THE POLICEMAN’S LAST ROLL CALL ...

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

THE POLICEMAN SQUARED his 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 unmanly 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 policeman waited quietly, for the judgement of his God. "Step forward now, policeman, you’ve borne your burdens well. Come walk a beat on Heaven’s streets, you’ve done your time in hell."



Rest in peace brother, and God bless your family.

May God give strength and peace to all who were involved in that incident and to LAPD as a department. May the family feel Christ's love and may He be a "father" to the fatherless and a "husband" to the widow.

I'm very sorry to hear about the terrible events that Officer Rose had to bear in the final years of his life. There are not enough words to thank him and his family for what they have done. We must have faith that he is being rewarded for his service in heaven. Rest well, and thanks for fighting the good fight, Officer Rose.

Hail Heaven Officer Rose, Mrs. Rose, I can't imagine what you are going through right now, please know we will pray for you and your family in this, the hardest time. I know you will receive comfort from the officers of the LAPD and that George will watch their backs from Heaven. He is with a great group of Officers/Deputies patroling streets of gold.
