A friend and I were speaking of fallen officers and your name rang out. I recall you not as an Officer but as a friend, an EMT, a father, caring man and a man of honor. I remember when you told us you were heading south to MD you were so excited. We had no idea how things would end. Rest in piece brother and renewed prayers be with your family. May GOD be with you and may his peace be upon you, in Jesus name...AMEN

David, I worked the same tiers you did brother. It saddens me to think of what happened to you. God bless you and your family. Rest in peace. My prayers stay with you and your family.

Thinking of you today and all of your loved ones. Thank you for your dedicated service to law enforcement. I always felt that those that work in the prison systems across this country are the real heroes for they are locked up with the worst people our society has produced and at the same time are unarmed in keeping these people under control for our protection. Thank you. You will never be forgotten.

The public may never the things this officer had to go throw before his tragic and horrible death. The loss of Officer McGuinn is one that we should not forget. Just because we have taken bad people of the city streets does not mean they quit there often violent ways while locked up. May god be with his family and his fellow brothers and sisters. Stay safe and protect the gates of heaven my brother.
