Reflections for Officer Scott Allen Hylton

Several times while Scott was going to Hillsville to work at night, he would see me with a stopped vehicle. He would always stop and make sure I was o.k. Once I thanked him for checking on me and he said " I wasn't checking on you ,I thought they were going to whip you and I just stopped to watch" A true Brother.

Unfortunately I have known many law enforcement officers over the years who lost their lives in the line of duty. But, Scott, you stick with me every day. I remember you and Eric Sutphin in particular because of your big personalities and big smiles, and your love of your careers in law enforcement. We finally have a Virginia Public Safety Memorial in Richmond, and every time I walk past it, I pat your name. You are not forgotten, my brother. RIP.

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

I will never forget this day. I was with Scott, talking to some kids in the Falling Branch School parking lot just prior to this. They were from out of town and lost, we talked to then for quite a while. I remember hearing Scott say he was at the Shell Station and I tried to get there as fast as I could. I didn't get there fast enough. I'm sorry my brother, I let you down. I will never forget you.

I remember these killings all too well. And while I personally didn't know these officers, I was still deeply saddened by their deaths. These were men who gave their lives for our community. Their families gave us their husbands, fathers, sons, brothers ,,, all for this community. May peace and blessings carry all our law enforcement and their families. And may you always know our humble thanks for what you do.

Scott was my friend and my Platoon Sgt in the National Guard. He was the one who picked you up when you felt down and laughed when you did something stupid but helped you figure out why it was stupid and how not to do it again. I was not a police officer when we met, but I am now. Rest in Peace Scott, you were my brother in arms then as your spirit is now.

Scott was one of my snipers when I was the Scout Platoon Leader in Pulaski. He was a great Soldier, a great sniper, but most importantly, he was a great friend. For the sake of his posterity, I would like to leave a memory of Scott to his faithful wife and family. Once while out in the field during a force-on-force training exercise, we were moving quickly through the woods. Scott, who was carrying all the things in our SOP plus a monstrous ghillie suit and a sniper rifle, was bringing up the rear and seemed to be struggling. I had often kidded him for being "so old." I worked the length of the line to check on everyone and when I came to Scott, I asked him how he was doing. From behind a ball of tobacco he smiled and said he was "hurtin'." I told him I suspected we were being followed. He took a knee, pointed his sniper rifle rearward, and said, "They'll have to get through me first, Sir." Hylton family please know that Scott was a patriot and a great friend. Our Commonwealth and Country were better because of his impact on us and he lives on through the impact he had on us.

I rode the schoolbus with Scott for several years. I was a year ahead of him in school. We never really talked that much back then. We shared a lot of laughter later in life when he was working for the Hillsville Police Dept and I was a waitress at the Corner Restaurant. We would always joke and cutup when he came in to eat, but the one thing that was always shared was the love that he had for his family. Scott's life ended entirely too early.

Yep, still miss you! Every time I hear this song I think of you:

"If you get there before I do
Don't give up on me
I'll meet you when my chores are through
I don't know how long I'll be

But I'm not gonna let you down
Darling wait and see
And between now and then
Til I see you again

I'll be loving you
Love, Me."

I've already blown a couple of things and I'm sorry...

Til I see you again

I'll be loving you
Love, Me

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 9th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

I pray for solace for all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace. Thanks to your family and friends for sharing their memories and devotion to you through their reflections.

Rest In Peace.

Your still in our thoughts and prayers.

A man in blue has lost his life in service of law.
The love that makes this sacrifice the greatest love of all.
A Police man was killed today, the reason I cannot say.
I don't know why he had to die.
The man in blue died for me and you;
we must remember him too.
Flags fly low, let use bow in prayer
for fallen police men everywhere;
and remember this: that they are missed.
The badge burns bright like an evening star
free from a world of war.
