Reflections for Auxiliary Police Officer Yevgeniy Borisovitch "Eugene" Marshalik

The true spirit of the life of a man sadly is only realized in death. It is with great respect and admiration that this Officer is honored for services rendered in the name of protecting the citizens of New York. The world has lost yet another who would lay down his life for his community. Rest in Peace Warrior.

"My Brother"

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was idealistic and believed he could make a difference.
He was immensely proud of the uniform and the badge and what they represent.
He felt privileged to be of service to his department, his community and to his country.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was friendly, courteous, and polite, yet firm.
He laughed and joked, but was serious when necessary.
He was competent, trained, and professional.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He had a strong sense of right and wrong and became
frustrated when true justice became sidetracked.
He felt the sharp criticism that goes with the job, but he
never wavered.
He stood by and for his fellow officers.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He longed for his family during the long hours.
He worried about them during his shifts and the lonely
weekends, holidays and midnights when they were apart.
He felt guilty about the lost time, but knew his calling
and prayed they would understand.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was a good son, a loving husband, and a devoted father.
He was dedicated to the profession and cared about the
people he served.
He wanted to do the best job that he could and strived to
be the best he could be.
He was a good citizen and a good neighbor.

He was a cop.

Yes, I did know him.
He was a cop, he was my Brother.

Rest easy Brother Marshalik, we have the watch...

I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.
Isaiah 6:8

You and your partner answered the call, as volunteers no less! There is only one word that can even begin to express what I think about the unimagineable sense of duty you and your partner exemplifed, unarmed, following an armed suspect...HEROES!!!!!! I doubt that I would have followed or approached the suspect with out my service weapon. The city of New York and the whole world have been deprived of two of the most amazing young Officers any department could ask for. You and your partner are true testaments to the badge and the profession of law enforcement.
To our Brothers and Sisters of the NYPD, the men and women of the Metropolitan Police Department send our deepest condolences!! We are here for you if ever you should need us.

Officer Marshalik, I too am a non-sworn officer - out there every shift unarmed, yet going into harm's way. I know you went to work knowing the risks, and nevertheless wanting to do your part to make your community better. Rest in Peace now, Brother... your community IS a better place for having you there when you were needed. Your service will be remembered with honor that is well deserved. God bless and keep you, Yevginiy.

Edmund Burke once said "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing"

Auxiliary Police Officer Eugene Marshalik and Auxiliary Police Officer Nicholas T. Pekearo not only understood the meaning of that quote, but they lived it. Both men volunteered their time to patrol the streets of New York City. They did not do it for money or glory. They did it as a way to positively contribute to the city in which they lived while gaining valuable incite into how the Law Enforcement community operates. These men put on police uniforms that were virtually indistinguishable to normal citizens from the uniforms worn by full time officers. They patrolled the streets unarmed, acting as the "eyes and ears" if the NYPD.

With just their presence on the street, they helped the NYPD triumph over evil. But on the night of March 14, 2007 both of these men personified the statement "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing".

When confronted by a male that had just murdered an innocent civilian, they attempted to apprehended the suspect, despite the danger. They could have run and waited for full time armed officers to arrive, but they stood their ground. When the suspect drew a weapon, the Officers took cover, but never lost sight of the suspect. Sadly the officers were killed, but I have no doubt that they saved countless lives that night.

Auxiliary Police Officer Eugene Marshalik and Auxiliary Police Officer Nicholas T. Pekearo are two extremely brave men, who deserve the thanks of the entire city. They made the ultimate sacrifice, so other could live. No man can do a greater deed than that.

Saint Michael, heaven's glorious commissioner of police,
who once so neatly and successfully cleared God's premises
of all its undesirables, look with kindly and professional
eyes on your earthly force.

Give us cool heads, stout hearts, and uncanny flair for
investigation and wise judgement.

Make us the terror of burglars, the friend of children and
law-abiding citizens, kind to strangers, polite to bores,
strict with law-breakers and impervious to temptations.

You know, Saint Michael, from your own experiences
with the devil that the police officer's lot on earth is not
always a happy one; but your sense of duty that so
pleased God, your hard knocks that so surprised the
devil, and your angelic self-control give us inspiration.

And when we lay down our night sticks, enroll us in your
heavenly force, where we will be as proud to guard the
throne of God as we have been to guard the city of all
the people. Amen.

Officer Marhalik,
It is very tragic when a young man is killed in the line of duty. Eventhough you did not spend a long time on Earth, your impact here was great. Many men and women around the world are bowing our heads for you. Rest in peace brother.

We offer our heartfelt sympathy to the family, friends and colleagues of Officer Marshalik and we honor his distinguished service to the cause of justice and peace. Sadly, our nation has lost one of its finest citizens, a community has lost a friend and protector, and a family has lost an example of character and courage who they will love and respect forever. Today, because of the sacrifice Officer Marshalik has made, the house of freedom is stronger, sturdier, and more secure.

To the family and friends of Officer Marshalik, I would like you to know that a lot of people pray for you, and my hope is that their prayers will give you the strength necessary to move on. Just as you were always with him when he walked the beat or patrolled the streets, know that he will always be with you - wherever you may be. In the days to follow, may you be strengthened by the fact that Officer Marshalik is a man distinguished by exceptional courage and will always be admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities. You, your family and your sacrifice will never be forgotten.
