I would like to reflect the fact that St. Paul officers are one of the greatest departments working with the community, I went through the 22 week academy with them and moved to Florida since and have been amazed by the crime here. Officer Vick will be missed and thought of often in St. Paul. Here in Florida every traffic stop/public encounter is almost treated list a felony stop due to the crime here. I would like to say take care to all the officers there and the ones that know me, (Graupman,Farrington)

Another precious life. I thank you, brave soldiers for having the courage and desire to face the everyday war: crime. We could not sleep sound and live secure if it was not for you brave, unselfish, dedicated warriors. My heart and prayers go out to the family, I re-live my tragedy every time I hear about another. We are taught to love one another, and nothing really prepares us for the tragic death of the ones we love. To the family: please have faith in God.

My heart aches for you and your family. For your brothers and sisters in blue. My husband lost his life in March and my step-son lives close by to you. I am sure he has heard about this tragic event on the news. It is a reminder every day of the sacrifice that you and your fellow officers make to protect the good citizens of your community. Rest easy now, the family is safe in the arms of your brothers and sisters. May God keep watch over all of us here left to carry on without you. Say hi to Drew from all of here in VA. Love and Prayers to your wife and children...xoxoxoxoxo

The Eskimos have over 100 words for snow, the Egyptians have over 500 words for sand and they say a picture paints 1000 words. We have lost another Brother, and there are no words for that. Brother, your shift is over and now you can rest. We will take it from here. My prayers to your family, until we meet... Rest in Peace.
