Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Alan Inzer

The great Italian composer Ennio Morricone wrote a work entitled “Gabriel’s Oboe”.
Yo-Yo Ma plays this music perfectly… When I hear this music, I think of true heroes such as Deputy Sheriff Alan Inzer. Deputy Inzer gave his life serving his State, and Nation. Actions such as Deputy Inzer’s are rare, and as such should be given the up most respect and honor. We honor you Sir, rest in peace with God.

I saw you for the first time, your last day here. It was pouring down rain, you stopped to help a lady on the side of I-210. She had no gas so you called for MAPS truck. I showed up we shook hands and helped the lady out. It was nice meeting you for the first time. Watch over us all.

Brother Officer,
That low life parasite that took you from us all too soon was captured here in Louisville, Ky. I do know all your brothers and sisters here in Metro Louisville were working diligently to capture him; the Federal Marshalls were successful. Soon he will be returned to your baliwick to stand charges for your murder. I can only hope the good citizens of Calcasieu Parish see fit to give him what he richly deserves...a short date with destiny. Thank you brother for your service to us all. Rest in Peace, we will take the watch from here.

I know that I didnt know you long but I enjoyed the time we had. When I meet you in the academy you were always willing to help those of us who were knew to this job. You were always there to provide a good joke to break the tension, or a reassuring word when someone needed help with something.
You should your dedication that sad night. And Know that we left no stone unturned to find these men who stole you from us. And one day soon they will face justice.
You will be missed Alan. By all of us.

We have been asked several times in our career "where were you when"

Rita hit our Parish
Deputy Bill Mcintosh was shot
The store clerk was shot (this several times)
The house was broken into
The fight started between husband and wife
The lost child was found

The list can go on for ever and no matter what the answer was in our hearts it was always "I wish I was there".

Now I will be asked where I was when Alan was shot

We both know the answer in my heart will be "I wish I was there with you" You gave your life doing your job and mine. I will always be grateful that I knew you; sad that I didnt know you better.


I wish i was there, I know you will always be where needed.

Deputy Inzer....Alan, we worked closely together during the Hurricane Rita disaster. We quickly became friends, brothers. You cant imiagine the impact that you and your wife had upon my life. You have made the lives of everyone who knew you a lot better. You are truly missed and your ultimate sacrifice will NEVER be forgotten.

To all who knew DO Inzer..we all here at the internet radio send you our deepest sympathies and our prayers at this time of your loss. Why has become of the people these days, that so many do not have any values for life? It really makes me angry to know there are wonderful people like Officer Inzer who put their lives on the line 24/7 365 days a year.
"When God Made Peace Officers"
Unknown Author
When the Lord was creating peace officers, he was into his sixth day of overtime when an angel appeared and said, "You're doing a lot of fiddling around on this one"

And the Lord said, "Have you read the spec on this order?" A peace officer has to be able to run five miles through alleys in the dark, scale walls, enter homes the health inspector wouldn't touch, and not wrinkle his uniform."

He has to be able to sit in an undercover car all day on a stakeout, cover a homicide scene that night, canvass the neighborhood for witnesses and testify in court the next day."

He has to be in top physical condition at all times, running on black coffee and half-eaten meals. And he has to have six pairs of hands."

The angel shook her head slowly and said, "Six pairs of way."

"It's not the hands that are causing me problems." said the Lord, "It's the three pairs of eyes an officer has to have."

"That's on the standard model?" asked the angel.

The Lord nodded. "One pair that sees through the bulge in a pocket before he asks, 'May I see what's in there sir?' (When he already knows and wishes he'd taken that accounting job.) Another pair here in the side of the head for his partner's safety. And another pair of eyes here in the front that can look reassuringly at a bleeding victim and say. 'You'll be all right ma'am.' When he knows it isn't so."

"Lord," said the angel, touching his sleeve, "rest and work on this tomorrow."

"I can't" said the Lord, "I already have a model that can talk a 250 pound drunk into a patrol car without incident, and feed a family of five on a civil service pay check."

The angel circled the model of the peace officer very slowly. "Can it think?" she asked.

"You bet." said the Lord. "It can tell you the elements of a hundred crime scenes; recite Miranda warnings in his sleep; detain, investigate, search, and arrest a gang member on the street in less time than it takes five learned judges to debate the legality of the stop...and still keeps its sense of humor."

"This officer also has phenomenal personal control. He can deal with crime scenes painted in hell; coax a confession from a child abuser; comfort a murder victim's family; and then read in the daily paper how law enforcement isn't sensitive to the rights of criminal suspects."

Finally, the angel bent over and ran her fingers across the cheek of the peace officer. "There's a leak." She pronounced. "I told you that you are trying to put to much in this model."
"That's not a leak," said the Lord, "it's a tear."
"What's the tear for?" asked the angel.
"It's for bottled-up emotions; for fallen comrades; for commitment to that funny piece of metal called his badge; for justice."
"You're a genius." said the angel.
The Lord looked somber. "I didn't put it there." he said.
You are a HERO and never will be forgotten.

Everyday an officer puts themselves in danger to protect the rest of us. Officer Inzer was one of the best, he is truly missed, but never forgotten!In my eyes you are God's special soldiers. May God Bless those of you that have fallen and those of you who are still going out everyday to make things better for the rest of us!

Rest in peace my did all.

While you sleep, we're there.

When you're sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner, or celebrating Christmas, we're there.

When its raining and cold, and you're glad to be in your home with your family, we're out there.

When it's your children's birthday, we're out there.

When it's our children's birthday, we're still out there.

You put on a suit and dress to go to work, we strap on a ballistic vest and a gun.

There's little room for error in your job, in ours there is none.

An error by you means a demotion, an error by us means a funeral.

When you tell your families "see you tonight" as you leave for work, you mean it. When we tell our family that, we pray we will.

At your job you strive to succeed, at our job we strive to survive.

In your job, one bad person is the talk of the office, in our job, one bad officer makes the news and suddenly were all bad.

In these headlines it's not what good we've done, but how much better it could have been done.

When you're scared you call us, when we're scared, we must carry on.

While you're eating a home cooked meal, we're having another hamburger.

While you're asleep with your spouse, ours sleep alone.

So the next time you're out with your family or friends, and you see a patrol car go by, remember the incredible sacrifice made by these officers every day.

Inside that car is a person that sacrifices his/her life, both professionally and personally Every day.
