I have never met Daniel, but i knew him. He's was COP! What more needs to be said. He worked a job most would not do. He saw things that most never see. He held back the tears until the task was done, because he had to be strong in public eye. He cried when he was alone because of what he had seen. He encountered and handled problems that most could not understand. He was called names and endured comments that most never hear. Yet, because he was a Cop, he came to work every day and did the duty he swore to do.

To the family of Daniel, always remember the gift he had. The gift of selflessness, and the desire to see a better, safer, and happier life for all.

I know these things because, I'm a COP. I have lost many brothers and sister in uniform in the twelve years that I have been in this field. We stand together in the field each day. We all understand that this is the price we may pay for what we believe in. We all pray that it will never happen to us or ours.

God bless and keep you Daniel. May God ease the pain for you family and friends.

We were watching TV the other night when they broke in and started showing coverage about this tragedy. I felt like I had been punched in the stomach when the reported that one officer had been killed and the other was still inside. It just didn't feel right that he could still be OK. I said a prayer for you then as I will continue to remember you in prayers. I'm so sorry that such a selfish cowardly bunch of people took your life and the life of the Constable that was trying to help you. I pray that God will wrap his loving arms around your family & help them find a way to make it without you. I also pray that justice will be served and these cowards will find a really large, nice front yard with high electric fences all around it or better yet....a nice electric chair to sit in. You will never be forgotten.

When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life in such a way that when you die, the world will cry and you will rejoice. Rest in Peace my brother.

Having recently lost a member of our department, the men and women of the Onondaga County Sheriff's Office (NY) know your pain and sorrow. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family, friends and co-workers of Sgt. Daniel WIlson.

It's a shame that incidents like this have to give us a wake up call. How many of us have responded to calls of this nature and never thought about a stituation such as this. This goes to show that...THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A ROUTINE CALL...always remember that guys....God be with the families in this time....and as well as the partner officers and department memebers...they hurt as much as anyone else does...

It is with great sadness that I learn of this violent tragedy. In a time like this there are no words to express the sorrow I know the friends and family of Sgt. Wilson are feeling right now. I lost a dear friend of mine this past April in a line of duty death resulting from gunfire. I know there is deep pain being felt by all of us in the law enforcement field, community, and especially by Sgt. Wilson's dearest friends and family. I pray God grant everyone the strength and unwavering endurance to make it through this time of pain and sorrow. Thank you Sgt. Wilson for the sacrifices you have made for us all in America. God Bless.

My heartfelt prayers to the loving family of Sgt.Wilson who gave to his community in bravery and courage. Yet another Hero at the gates of Heaven. May God hold your hearts in His loving hands while you try to make sense of such evil events. Just know that to all of us still wearing a badge he is a true Hero and will never be forgotten.

This was a needless death in the fact the suspects didn't need to turn to violence to have their say over a small piece of land. The officers involved did what each of us do every day, ensure everyone's rights are protected not knowing what may dangers we may face behind the door of the house. May your service not be forgotten for when one bleeds, we all bleed.

At the beginning of every shift I supervise, myself and the other officers on shift dedicate the day to the memory of a fallen officer.

Today, December 10, 2003 we dedicated the shift to the memory of Sgt. Daniel Wilson and Cst. Ouzts who died just two days ago.

When one law enforcement officer falls, we all stumble for a while, but we will carry on.

Sgt. Wilson's and Cst. Ouzts' sacrifice will never be forgotten.

Stay strong, stay focused, and make SURE that Sgt. Daniel Wilson will never be forgotten.

Please remember the fallen officers we have lost. Remember the men and women who died trying to make this world a safer and better place for us all to live in. Thank you Sergeant Wilson for a job well done. Please continue to watch over us and protect us as only you can. You will forever be at our side and in our hearts.

For those of you who still have loved ones with us please take the time to tell them how much you appreciate and care about them.


If I knew it would be the last time
That I'd see you fall asleep,
I would tuck you in more tightly
and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.

If I knew it would be the last time
that I see you walk out the door,
I would give you a hug and kiss
and call you back for one more.

If I knew it would be the last time
I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise,
I would video tape each action and word,
so I could play them back day after day.

If I knew it would be the last time,
I could spare an extra minute
to stop and say "I love you,"
instead of assuming you would KNOW I do.

If I knew it would be the last time
I would be there to share your day,
Well I'm sure you'll have so many more,
so I can let just this one slip away.

For surely there's always tomorrow
to make up for an oversight,
and we always get a second chance
to make everything just right.

There will always be another day
to say "I love you,"
And certainly there's another chance
to say our "Anything I can do?"

But just in case I might be wrong,
and today is all I get,
I'd like to say how much I love you
and I hope we never forget.

Tomorrow is not promised to anyone,
young or old alike,
And today may be the last chance
you get to hold your loved one tight.

So if you're waiting for tomorrow,
why not do it today?
For if tomorrow never comes,
you'll surely regret the day,

That you didn't take that extra time
for a smile, a hug, or a kiss
and you were too busy to grant someone,
what turned out to be their one last wish.

So hold your loved ones close today,
and whisper in their ear,
Tell them how much you love them
and that you'll always hold them dear

Take time to say "I'm sorry,"
"Please forgive me," "Thank you," or "It's okay."
And if tomorrow never comes,
you'll have no regrets about today.

To the family, friends and fellow officers, you all are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult period of time. Thanks for a job well done. Rest in piece.
