As someone who was almost a statistic in the line of duty, I remember that night like it was yesterday. My family and I thank God for every day I have had since. I remember how my father was that night when my family were called. I can only imagine how difficult the loss is for the Shields family right now. God bless you at this impossible time.

I am sending out my deepest condolences to the Shields family and the Orange Police Department for this terrible loss. I worked side by side with Kieran at Federal Express before he became a police officer. He told me about his dreams of becoming a musician and or a career in law enforcement. "Special K" as we called him, never missed the chance to make someone smile or laugh. I will always hold those great times close to me and know he is smiling down on all of us. I raise my glass of Old No. 7 in honor and memory of a great friend, father, and a hero. Rest in Peace Kieran.

Shields out of the church yesterday.. You are in gods hands now brother.. Rest in Peace.. And may the scales of justice give that coward what he deserves...

Standing at your funeral today, I realized that it was more of an expression of love, and that love can conquer all. The many officers and citizens who stood in silence to honor your heroic sacrifice were there out of love and respect for you and your family. We all feel the loss, but I also realized the deep connection that we all have to each other in coming together to honor your sacrifice and celebrate your life. God bless your family.
