Reflections for Auxiliary Police Officer Nicholas Todd Pekearo

HERO'S" THAT'S ALL THAT CAN BE SAID.ITS SCARY ENOUGH TO PURSUE AN ARMED FELON EVEN (WHEN ARMED YOURSELF) BUT FOR THESE TWO HEROES TO CHASE THIS PIECE OF HUMAN WASTE UNARMED IS TOTALLY HEROIC.THERE ARE NOT TOO MANY NEW YORKERS OUT THERE WHO WOULD HAVE THE GUTS TO DRESS UP IN A REAL POLICE UNIFORM UNARMED AND UNPAID TO PROTECT THIS CITY. BAD ENOUGH, THE REAL POLICE IN THIS CITY ARE NEARLY WORKING FOR FREE BECAUSE OUR LOVELY CITY PAYS THEM GARBAGE!!DONATIONS SHOULD BE MADE BY STORE OWNERS AND CIVILIANS OF THIS SO CALLED GREAT CITY TO PURCHASE BULLET PROOF VESTS FOR ALL THESE HEROIC AUXILIARY OFFICERS WHO PUT THEIR LIVES ON THE LINE EVERY DAY AND NIGHT FOR FREE TO SERVE AND PROTECT BOTH GOOD PEOPLE AND ANTI-COP LIBERAL TRASH.

To the parents, family, and friends of Officer Nicholas T. Pekearo, as well as the NYPD and its Auxiliary unit, I offer my most sincere condolences.

Reading the account of how this officer as well as his partner lost their lives in addition to the pizza store victim is overwhelming. May God bless all of them.

To think that there are those who do not value a human life and believe that they have a right to end that life is incomprehensible...this was an outrageous act.

I pray that God will give all those who mourn this young officer's loss, the graces needed to cope with this tragedy.

As you face the future without his physical presence, know that he will remain with you in your heart, thoughts and memories. ODMP survivor families will also remember him...he will not be forgotten.

May God's perpetual light shine upon Officer Pekearo and may he rest in His eternal peace for having made the ultimate sacrifice in protecting and serving his community.

With my deepest sympathy.

God Knows
You have my deepest sympathy,
but it really doesn't help.
Your grief goes beyond what words can express.

There's nothing anyone can say,
and nothing we can do to heal your broken heart
or take away your pain.

Let God take you in His arms and cover you with His love.
He knows the depth of your grief
and only He can give you peace.
He knows it will take time for your heart to heal,
and your loved one has a place that no one else can fill.

If there's any comfort let it be in this,
your loved one is with Jesus,
in a home that's filled with bliss.
There are no tears in Heaven, no more heartache and no pain,
only love and happiness for all eternity.

We must go on living and do the best we can,
then when Jesus calls our name
we will be with him again.
Remember this:
There is sacredness in tears.
They are not the mark of weakness, but of power.
They speak more eloquently than 10,000 tongues.
They are the messengers of overwhelming grief,
of deep contrition, and of
UNSPEAKABLE LOVE.
Here we have not lost just one officer but two fine young men who were there in a position to help track a person that had just shot and killed a person who was working in a job that was to serve others. Officer Peakearo and his partner were doing their job and put their lives on the line to do just that. They were following an individual who had no values of life, and the consequences that his actions would bring to others.
My heart breaks to know the loss of all the family members, friends, that this act will bring.
We hope that God will wrap his loving arms around you and help all of you to get through this deep sorrow.

I wish to send to my deepest sympathies to the family of Nicholas T. Pekearo, as well as the members of the NYPD and it's Auxiliary unit. You will be be in my prayers during this time of grief. As a 5 year member of Saint Paul's Police Reserve unit, I understand the dangers that come with wearing the uniform and badge. However I also understand the great satisfaction that comes from providing such a valuable service to one's community. Nicholas has given the ultimate sacrifice for the City of New York, and the country as a whole. He will always be remembered.
