Reflections for Supervisor Stanley A. Wiley

Thank you for serving. Rest in peace brother.

Supervisor Wiley walked where most people would never dare go. He protected us from the violent, ruthless killers living in his correctional institution. When people think about prisoners being locked away, they need to remember the brave souls, like Supervisor Wiley, who risk their lives keeping them there. To his family, may you find strenght in your faith, from each other, and fellow officers of Supervisor Wiley. I too, strongly want his memory to live on. Thanks for fighting the good fight, sir.

Its something that youll never get over because they will always be in your heart in everything that you do. Never forget the good things and always talk about your feeling.

May the family, friends, and co-workers of Officer Wiley know they are being remembered in prayer during this tragic time.

Chaplain Kleman
Texas Department of Criminal Justice

Saint Michael, heaven's glorious commissioner of police,who once so neatly and successfully cleared God's premises of all its undesirables, look with kindly and professional eyes on your earthly force.

Give us cool heads, stout hearts, and uncanny flair for investigation and wise judgment.

Make us the terror of burglars, the friend of children and law-abiding citizens, kind to strangers, polite to bores, strict with law-breakers and impervious to temptations.

You know, Saint Michael, from your own experiences with the devil, that the police officer's lot on earth is not always a happy one; but your sense of duty that so pleased God, your hard knocks that so surprised the devil, and your angelic self-control give us inspiration.

And when we lay down our night sticks, enroll us in your heavenly force, where we will be as proud to guard the throne of God as we have been to guard the city of all the people. Amen.

Sgt Snake

To the family of this fallen officer, know that at least he is in a better place. He did a job that not many people can do and I'm sure did to the best of his abilities. I hope that there is some peace that can be found in this terrible time. To Supervisor Wiley, I salute you sir. Godspeed on your journey to heaven.

Rest in peace brother.


My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Off. Wiley. I was proud to have known and worked with him. He always did his job, with respect, honor, and pride. He will be missed greatly.

Lieutenant Eddie Tinsley
Texas Dept. Criminal Justice

The Officer's stood and faced God,
Which must always come to pass.
They hoped their shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as their brass.

"Step forward now, Officers.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"

The men squared their shoulders and
The Policeman spoke first
"No, Lord, I guess We ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges
can't always be a saint.

We've had to work most Sundays,
and at times our talk was rough,
and sometimes we've been violent,
Because the streets are tough.

The Corrections Officer then added,
But we never took a penny,
That wasn't ours to keep...
Though we worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.

And we never passed a cry for help,
Though at times we shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive us,
We've wept unmanly tears.

Together they say,
We know We don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted us around
Except to calm their fear.

If you've a place for us here, Lord,
It needn't be so grand.
We never expected or had too much,
But if you don't...We'll understand.

There was silence around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the Officers waited quietly,
For the judgment of their God.

"Step forward now, Officers,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."


He was a great guy, who loved his job. We will miss him.....


My thoughts and prayers are with the family. May the Lord ease their pain.

Another member of our ever decreasing family in blue...My condolences to his family, friends, and co-workers. It never ceases to amaze me how fragile life is and why some people just don't care about anything but themselves. I hope the coward who did this realizes what he took away from so many people. Thank you, Supervisor Wiley for your selfless service and sacrifice. It is a job far more dangerous than anybody on the outside realizes....
