Reflections for Police Officer Edwanton Allen "Eddie" Thomas

I knew Thomas for only 2 months but in those 2 months he gained my respect quickly. He was very helpful to me when I reported to the US Coast Guard Marine Safety and Security Team 91101. Thomas was very proud and very informative about being a Police Officer as well. Wanting to be a Police Officer in the future myself, he answered all my questions about local agencies and the job itself, even offering a ride along so I could see what it was like. He was well liked and had a GREAT sense of humor.

My condolences go out to Eddie's family and to the Brier Police Department.

Brother Thomas,

Though I never got the privilege of meeting you in person, in just the last few hours I have learned you're a great MAN of HONOR and PRIDE. Everyone who has worked with you has talked highly of you. Brother even though your time was short, you made a difference in every life you touched. My prayers and thoughts are with your family and fellow brothers/sisters. GOD will take care of you now. Rest in peace, brother......

I never met you, I'm not even in law enforcement. Thank you for laying your life on the line. It's so sad to see a police officer taken away from us so young. May you be in a better place.

“REMEMBER ME”
Law enforcement officers are, indeed, a special breed of people. Ask anyone on the street and they will tell you that they would not have our jobs for anything in the world. It takes something special to do what we do and at the same time be able to even contemplate retirement. We try to be optimists. Unfortunately, there are a few of us who will never make that date with retirement. By the very nature of our job, we are at risk everyday of losing our lives, either at the hand of some deranged individual or in some other situation that we, by virtue of our occupation, may be unable to avoid. Some people have recognized the hazardous duties we involve ourselves in, the risks we take, and the pride we take in accomplishing that job. There is National Law Enforcement Week, dedicated to us who gladly accept the responsibility of protecting the citizens in our respective jurisdictions. National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Day is dedicated to those who gave their lives in the line of duty. These are but two examples of remembrances specifically for law enforcement personnel. Remembrances that come but once a year. We should remind fellow officers of another type of remembrance, one that will last a lifetime. Sooner or later, a doctor will pronounce us dead. It is inevitable. Regardless of whatever happens, death is the end we will all have to face.
