My heart breaks everytime I see that we've lost another, and reality sets in that I could be next. But everyday I still put on this uniform and do the job I was called to do, and pray that I will come home to my little girl at the end of my shift. To Officer Espinoza, you gave the ultimate sacrifice to ensure that your streets and family would be protected, God Bless you, you are TRUELY a hero. To your wife and parents: I cannot begin to imagine the hurt that you have right now. My heart goes out to you and I am praying for comfort for you. To Officer Espinoza's daughter: Your father gave his life to try and make a better future for you and your family. He will always be with you even though you cannot see him. His spirit will live on in you. God be with you and keep you in your hour of need.

The general public scrutinizes and immediately attacks the actions of the U.S. military fighting men and women in Iraq, and how the Commander in Chief is leading our troops to their deaths, but they fail to understand the purpose, the reasons, and the necessity of their presence. They hold signs shouting "No More War", "Stop Killing our Troops", etc...but what about the homefront war that our local law enforcement agencies are battling everyday. Do we easily forget what THEY sacrifice for our communities, for our neighborhoods, and our cities? If you must protest, protest for ALL of us as we all are fighting for YOUR freedoms. Thank-You Officer Espinoza for your contributions in keeping us safe and believing that our freedom is priceless. We salute you for standing tall and proudly wearing the uniform. Our heart felt thoughts to you and yours, and to those that knew you well.

I am truly sorry for your loss. I know that no words will make this pain any less, but I hope that you find comfort in knowing that your family will be in the prayers of many. He died a hero, and his service and sacrifice will NEVER be forgotten.

Again, I'm very sorry for your loss.

Very sad tragedy indeed. What a coward!! My most heartfelt sympathy goes to the wife of Officer Espinoza, his little baby girl, family, and co-workers. May God bless you all.

I'm still here.....

Although you cannot see me,
I'm still here..
Although you cannot hear me,
I'm still here....
Although I cannot wipe the tears from your face,
I'm still here...
Although I cannot bandage your hurts,
I'm still here...
Although I cannot cover you up when you are cold,
I'm still here...
Although I'm not here in the flesh,
I'm still here...
I'm that gentle breeze that brushes up against your cheeks, giving you a kiss, and letting you know that I love you.
When you smile for no reason, just remember that it's me letting you know that I'm still here......

They have said that there is no greater pain than when a parent loses a child.
I have often called the men and women of Bayview station my kids. I have two children at home and 125 at work.
Isaac was a good cop, a good friend and a good man.

PLEASE WATCH OVER THOSE OF US WHO MUST STILL WALK IN HARMS WAY...

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN....

The long strong blue line is thinner with the loss of Officer Espinoza, but just as strong. Eternal Rest God grant unto
his loyal servant and all the faithful departed, through the
mercy of Jesus Christ. Amen.

No greater love than for one man to lay down his life for another. I hate to see another name to be added to this site. The "Blue Line" got thinner the day you were taken away from your family, friends, and co workers. Be at peace now, we have the watch.

You were there for me and my family as we dealt with the murder of my beloved son, Mark on July 9, 1999 in San Francisco. Your kindness and support meant so much to all of us. You never stopped caring. Thank you for that.

Your beloved wife and daughter have my deepest sympathy. They will be in my prayers.

Rest in peace Dear Isaac.

Once again my heart is broken in reading of yet another fallen comrade. I have been in Law Enforcement over 25 years, 11 of that as a Police Officer, so I feel especially close to anyone the world over that is dedicated to our profession. Some of my friends have been slain by offenders. I was also on duty and "at the controls" when two officers were shot. Having had those experiences and my own close calls while on patrol, I want to send my heartfelt sympathy to the family of Officer Espinoza and to the members of SFPD. My heart goes out to each of you. We may be separated by miles, but not by anything else. We are all in this together. We are with each other in heart & spirit each time we go on duty. May it comfort you to know that you are in our hearts and prayers and may the peace of God surround you now.
