Our deepest sympathy goes out to the family, friends and all the members of the Mint Police. We were made safer by his service and we all suffer their tragic loss. The family of Officer Shinault deserves our appreciation and gratitude for their sacrifice. In the days to follow, may you be strengthened by the fact that Officer Shinault is a man distinguished by exceptional courage and will always be admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities. You, your family and your sacrifice will never be forgotten.

It sounds like thunder far away, but the skies are blue and bright..And soon they crest the hill nearby, and ride into our sight. They shake the ground with powerful sound, and they make some hearts beat fast.. They look so proud and noble, like knights come from the past.
Side by side, they always ride, and seem to move as one.. From early in the morning light, to the setting of the sun. And children point and wave to them, from cars that pass them by.. And young ones ask their parents, why the men have mirrors for eyes.
They ride the roads, and fight for good, and defend small ones like you.. They ask to ride, and do with pride, and sometimes they are few. Like men of steel, on silver wings, they sparkle in the light.. then with a roar and rumble, they ride out of our sight.
Sometimes when one has fallen, never to ride again.. You can hear the others calling, like thunder on the wind. Side by side they slowly ride, and their thunder is a mournful sound.. And the mirrors hide their eyes from us, when teardrops fall to ground.
So if you see one riding, and you look into his face.. You see your reflection in his eyes, you know that you are safe. For motormen are a special breed, they love to ride the wind.. And when you hear the thunder boom, the fallen one rides again.

I saw the Heavens open up.
The Earth shook with fear.
For Evil, knew of God's Army.

They were Hero's, men on steel horses.

Brother Shinault,

May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
And the rains fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

You’re Brothers in Blue
