Reflections for Detective Vicky Anne Owen Armel

May God bless the Armel family and her brother officers in this sorrowful time. In my job driving tractor trailer, I drive through Fairfax County every night, and know that the officers in this area are very helpful and are to be commended in there professionalism. This senseless unprovoked killing and wounding of officers makes you wonder how anyone could be a police officer. But without people like Detective Armel the country would be a wasteland. God bless you Vicky and rest knowing that you did make a difference in the lives you touched

Detective Armel,
May god bless and watch over your family, your co-workers, and you. My heart aches whenever I see another name added to the roll, even more so when it is added at the hands of a coward such as yours was. Rest in peace, we have the watch from here. The thin blue line will not be broken.

I'm so sorry to see the pain of losing an officer here in Virginia... We lost one of our own in Las Vegas a few months ago, and now while visiting here, I am taken back to the pain of it, all over again. Apparantly Vicky's job here was done, and now, she will watch over all of us. To her family, know she was a true HERO, fighting until the end. God Speed.

As a fellow officer and mother, I think of the pain that Vicky's family is going through. Tyler, please know your extended police family is here for you.

I was never more proud of being a police officer than I was yesterday. The tactics and professionalism shown by our officers during this unfolding event was the most inspiring thing I have ever seen. I also would like to thank all of the other agencies that assisted our department during this crisis. It is nice to know that when we need each other the most, we can count on our fellow officers to be there.
