Reflections for Lieutenant Michael Elvin Walker

To the family and coworkers of Lt. Walker. I cannot imagine a greater sense of frustation and loss then that which you are going through. I pray this is the last time that you experience this pain. Unfortunately, I know this pain well. The loss of brave people and servants of humanity should never occur, but it does.

While I know that my words are from afar please take comfort in the knowledge that the brotherhood of law enforcement, from the Atlantic to the Pacific, shares your pain.

The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office in Fayetteville North Carolina offers our heartfelt prayers and thoughts to the members of the California Highway Patrol and the family of Lt. Michael Walker.

Brother Walker,

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.

Respectfully,
You’re Brothers in Blue

It was at the funeral services for CHP Officer Andy Stevens, that I first heard the California Highway Patrol's Code of Honor. In it is the promise to, "Assist those in peril or distress, and, if necessary, lay down my life rather than swerve from the path of duty."

Anybody who has worked or driven Highway 17 on a good day knows about danger. Any officer who works that road in the dark with heavy fog in wet conditions (as our local Highway Patrol staff bravely does on a regular basis) is clearly displaying their selfless commitment to public service.

Certainly, Lt. Walker's efforts at the crash scene were life saving for other travelers.

May we all show our appreciation for Lt. Walker's sacrifice by gathering around his family and providing them comfort during their dreadful time of loss.

Rest in peace Sir. You have earned it.

Thank you for your service and dedication, Lt. Walker. This tragedy comes all too short after just losing Officer Manny a week and a half ago.
May the Lord comfort your family and friends, as well as the entire CHP family at this very difficult time.

My deepest sympathy goes to the family and friends of Lieutenant Michael Walker. They are in my prayers.
May they keep or find faith in God to help them thru this tragedy.


Reality

Imagine how our world would be
If every police officer quit
Turned in their gun, turned in their badge,
Just finally had enough of it.

No respect, no loyalty,
No appreciation of all they do,
They’d give their lives for all of us,
These wonderful officers of “Blue”.

Kicked at, spit on,
Punched, stabbed and shot,
Everyday assaults on officers,
Done…without thinking a second thought!

Our laws are in favor of criminals,
There’s always some loophole in their case,
Out again to commit more crimes and murders
…creates pain, that we, the family and friends
…in time will never erase.

Why should they do it?
Why take the risk?
Why put their life on the line?
Subject their loved ones to endless suffering,
When their precious life is lost while fighting crime.

More murders, more kidnappings, more robberies and rapes,
Just to mention a few,
Please ask yourself how life would be,
If there were NO officers in Blue!

Would you do it? Could you do it?
And for how many…would YOU give it all?
Rewards are a 21 gun salute, a Medal of Honor,
And your name gets added to the Wall.

Think about it. Why are they here?
And why do some hate them so?
Because they enforce the laws that put convicts and murderers
In jail serving time, or on “Death Row”.

All give some and some give all,
It’s a risk they chose to take:
To put their heart and soul in it,
To put their lives at stake.

So, please take a moment,
Please give it deep thought,
Think of what “you can do”…

To help show respect,
To help follow the laws,
So we’d quit losing our Heroes in Blue!

Rest in peace my brother in blue, your tour here has ended but in heaven it has just begun. My prayers are with you, and may god bless your family.

You may be gone but you will never be forgotten.

I prayed last night that 2006 would arrive without any additional line of duty deaths - words cannot express the sadness I felt when I read of this today. Please accept my sincere heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and fellow officers of Lieutenant Walker.

Mrs. Walker, my husband was killed in the line of duty 9 months ago. Please know that you will get through this, although you may not believe it right now. Your husband was a hero and gave the ultimate sacrifice - now he is an angel looking down on you and your daughters. He will embrace you, and will help guide you on this very painful journey you have just begun. Your heart won't always hurt the way it does today - the pain will soften with time. Hold on to your family and friends and believe that your wonderful husband will be with you every minute of every day, just as mine is.

God bless you, Lieutenant Walker. Rest in peace, Blue Angel.
