Reflections for Officer Jason West

I heard about this at 11pm last night as I was getting off. Words can't express the sorrow I feel for CHPD and Officer West's family. May God help all of you through this. Know that we are thinking of you.

The policeman stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as his brass.

"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"

The policeman squared his shoulders and said,
"No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges
can't always be a saint.

I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.

But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime,
When the bills got just too steep.

And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.

So, if you've a place for me,
Lord, It needn't be so grand.
I’ve neither expected nor had too much,
But if you don't.....I'll understand.

There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.

"Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."

Officer West - you have bravely served and sacrificed for those who do not respect you. What a courageous and honorable calling you chose; you will be truly missed down here.

To his family, friends, and coworkers - I know that Jason meant the world to you. This time is devastating and shocking. Please know that police families around the country mourn with you - you are not alone. Also know that his memory will ALWAYS live on in those who carry on in the thin blue line.

Say hello to PO Luke Hoffman (EOW: 4/26/2007). Tell him even though it's been a month, we still miss and love him.
