Reflections for Officer Dwayne N. Freeto

Hey Rookie! Today I stopped by here to just reflect on my friends lost to the job. I'm in NY now, ( Don't ask) and am working on a new project that involves local Peer Support, C.O.P.S. and our Veterans Chaplin support group. Been retired now 12 years but you're on my mind often. That night will forever be etched in my mind. I know as both a veteran and Police Officer you'll be happy to see us making sure Vets/Police get help. My local VA has been extremely supportive and now the County is as well.
I embark on this new venture in honor of you and my other friends who died.
God Bless Brother.

We met once before. I was in Motors, you were in patrol. Biggest smile ever.

Our Motor Team had the honors to escorted your family to your funeral.

I think of you every time I drive past that section of I-35 and every 12/17, you will never be forgotten.

13 years have flown past since you were taken from us. I pray that you can see and are proud of what your baby girls have grown into. Brilliant Jordin is so close to graduating A&M, beautiful Jenna is driving and can shoot like you never would have imagined. Your Karen is indomitable. I checked on your parents today on yet another anniversary. Can you believe I'm the NPD commander over our old district now?! My first order is your picture watches over EVERY roll call. We all miss you. I hope you are proud of how we've charged on since you left. God bless you Dwayne Freeto!

Still miss you! We are coming up on 10 years and i just can't believe it, but know that I can not and will not let you be forgotten!

You should see the tattoo that Jimmy has its amazing. He is planning a "reunion" for all the your Army friends. You wouldn't believe how much you are missed! Your Brother, Parents, Me and Brent are planning a 10 year "reunion" as well for the PD family.

I just hope you are proud of me and what i have done for you and because of you. You made me half of who i am today and i will NEVER forget you!

Hugs! Love you!
Until I see you again.....

No words of mine could ever describe the horror of this good man's terrible death. I extend my condolences to his wife and kids. I hope my letter to the parole board makes a difference.

Proud to send my "No Parole" letter today sir. You have not been forgotten and we are all working strongly to ensure your killer spends every day of the sentence in prison. God bless the family, friends, and former co-workers of Officer Freeto during this re-opening of a horrible wound.

Rest in Peace my Brother of the Badge, May God Bless your family, Friends and Department. Officer Dwayne Freeto my "No Parole for Cop Killers" went out this Morning and hopefully we can keep this POS in Prision. Thank you for your service and Courage.

You were taken away too soon Officer Dwayne Freeto. Now the piece of dung that caused your death is up for parole. I for one have wrote to the Texas Board of Pardons & Parole urging them to deny that piece of dung's parole!

Thank you for your Service and Sacrifice. I Pray for Peace for your Family, Friends and Co-Workers.

I also Pray that the hounds of hell forever pursue and gnaw at the flesh of your murderer!

I live in Fort Worth, and I remember this happening. I remember thinking that his wife and kids would have a rough Christmas just a day over a week later...probably always will. Officer Freeto was just trying to do the right thing-help a poor motorist broken down in a bad place at a bad time-something most of us have driven right past without thought a hundred times. If there is a silver lining to this terrible cloud, it's that he got to stand in front of Saint Peter with a very fresh good deed-the one that was his last, and most likely not his only.

I drove past that spot on I-35 a few dozen times before either the weather or the city cleaned up the charred soot burned into the traffic barrier that was the only physical evidence of officer Freeto's sacrifice to the preservation of our way of life here in Fort Worth Texas, and everytime I couldn't keep my mind off of his family and the ultimate sacrifice he gave for our citizens. I hate to sound tacky, but to be trapped in a burning vehicle with no escape is the stuff nightmares are made of-I hope that the end came as swiftly and painlessly as possible for this hero.
God bless you Dwayne Freeto. God bless all of this nation's law enforcement, who get up every morning and go to work to preserve our way of life knowing full well that they may not live to see tomorrow-you are heros, each and every one of you.
