Brother Robert thank you for your service to the people of South Carolina, the world is a better place for what you did. The cowards who attacked you will be punished in this world and the next for their hate of an honest man doing what was right. Thank you and rest now in eternal glory with our Lord. Keep an eye on us as we keep the watch.

This is one of those times where no words seem to be proper enough to express the sorrow and the rage I feel for the death of this Peace Officer. May you Rest in Peace................

“REMEMBER ME”
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.

I followed Constable Bailey's story as it unfolded. I remained hopeful but sad the whole time. I'm so sorry for Bailey, his family and friends, and especially for the depraved people who comitted such a frightening and brazen act. With Bailey's murder, we have now entered a new age even more dangerous for police officers than it was before. I did not think things could get much worse, but with this awful story, it certainly has. May God welcome and bless Constable Bailey, and may justice be brought for him, both temporal and divine.

A POLICEMAN'S PRAYER
BROTHER WHEN YOU WEEP FOR ME REMEMBER THAT IT WAS MEANT TO BE.
LAY ME DOWN AND WHEN YOU LEAVE REMEMBER I'LL BE AT YOUR SIDE...IN EVERY DARK AND DREARY ALLEY I'LL BE THERE AS YOU SLOWLY TREAD, ON EVERY STREET CORNER IN THE DRIVING SNOW I'LL HOLD YOUR COAT AND YOU WILL KNOW.
IN PLACES WHERE THE DEVIL IS AFRAID TO WALK...
AT DOORS WHERE YOU MEET RESISTANCE...
IN HOUSES WHERE CHILDREN HIDE...
YOU KNOW I'LL BE AT YOUR SIDE.
THE PLACE FROM WHICH I NOW RESPOND IS OVERSTAFFED WITH HEROES GONE...MEN WHO ANSWERED ONE LAST JOB AND DID IT WELL.
AS POLICEMEN WE UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS A CARD DEALT IN OUR HAND...A CARD WE HOPE WE NEVER PLAY BUT WE HOLD IT THERE ANYWAY.
THE CARD IS SOMETHING WE IGNORE AS WE STAND ON THAT THIN BLUE LINE EVERY TOUR...FOR WE KNOW THAT WE ARE THE ONLY PRAYER FOR MANY OUT THERE.
SO REMEMBER, AS YOU WIPE YOUR TEARS, THE JOY I HAVE KNOWN THROUGHOUT THE YEARS...AS THE JOB I LOVED TO DO I PRAY THAT THIS THOUGHT WILL SEE YOU THROUGH.

-AUTHOR UNKNOWN

Brother, you will never be forgotten.....your work was not done in vain. May God bless and watch over your family, friends and fellow Constables.

Constable Bailey:

I first read of your death in a newspaper...the circumstances are yet unclear. However, what is clear is that you died a hero at the hands of ruthless cowards. Your courage will always be admired; your killers will be prosecuted. Rest in peace, Constable Bailey; you will be missed...but others will stand your watch! Godspeed!
