Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Daniel Browne-Sanchez

Deputy Sanchez,

You are a hero. This action was once explained to me in the following manner. Some people are sheep, then others are wolves. Standing between both are the sheep dogs. Neither side likes the sheep dog, but when the wolves come the sheep knows who will be there protector. You sir, were a sheep dog. Rest in peace.

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.

You served the people of Hawaii for five years. In your last act of public service you heroically charged an armed assailant to protect not only the public but your friends. That is the true meaning of a hero protecting his ohana

"A Part Of America Died,"
Author Unknown
Somebody killed a policeman today,
And part of America died.
A piece of our country he swore to protect,
Will be buried with him at his side.
The suspect that shot him will stand up in court,
With counsel demanding his rights.
While a young widowed mother must work for her kids,
And spend many long lonely nights.
The beat he walked was a battle field too
just as if he had gone off to war.
Though the flag of our nation won't fly at half mast,
To his name they will add a gold star.
Yes, somebody killed a policeman today,
In your town or mine,
While we slept in comfort behind locked doors,
A cop put his life on the line.
Now his ghost walks a beat on a dark city street,
And stands at each new rookies' side.
He answered the call,of himself and gave his all,
And a part of America died.
To all who knew DS Browne-Sanchez, our prayers are with you at this horrible time in your lives. No words can even come close to help at this time. Hopefully as time goes by the hurt and shock can pass so you can read the wonderful reflections that have been left here for all to read.
We know that Daniel is now with his GOD and that he is walking a beat in heaven and watching over everyone. Another HERO has lost his life because of his dedication for the job, that he loved and never gave a thought about his welfare, just to give his all for his badge

The loss of Deputy Browne-Sanchez is a senseless tragedy. He was off-duty, yet could not stand by while innocent citizens were being threatened by a gun-wielding attacker.

Our family offers prayers for his mother as she copes with her new reality. To the community at large and the co-workers of Deputy Browne-Sanchez, know that his sacrifice will not be forgotten; he will be remembered.

Deputy Browne-Sanchez, rest in peace, sir.
