Reflections for Police Officer Norvelle Brown

It is truly a sad day when a fellow law enforcement officer has to end his watch with a bullet. I am saddened to know that this is more recently a reality that all in law enforcement must face. You can rest easy now and let your fellow brothers and sisters in uniform continue the watch. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Officer Brown.

To the family of Norvelle:

Hello I just wanted to say that I am truly sorry for what happen to your son. May god comfort you all through this time of sorrow. I am a firm believer of God and I do believe that he called him home because his time had expried on earth. Just remember that we all gotta go one day, but I know that it hurts because he was taken away so soon. I never got the chance to meet him, but from what I hear, he was an awesome person. Stay prayerful and keep GOD first because he will be the one to get you through this.

Rest in Peace Officer Brown...You lived in Honor...Now, Rest in Peace.

To the Brown Family,

I extend to you my sincere condolences in your lost of a true hero. Every time we lose an officer to such senseless violence it makes me think, is the job really worth it? Is this profession worth the grief a family must endure? But having live in the very community that took your love one away, I am thankful that I met a St. Louis Police Officer who took the time to show me the way to a better life.

It is time that we start teaching our children who the really heroes are. It's not the basketball player, rappers on TV, or these thugs on the street that our kids should be looking up to. These people have no vested interest in our communities. It's the men and women who pin on that badge everyday and have sworn to protect us that are the "TRUE HEROS"

Rest in Peace Officer Brown. You will not be forgotten.

I am so sorry for what has happened to your family, no words can make the pain go away. Just know that there are many people out there thinking about you and praying for you. I never met Officer Brown but he sounds like a WONDERFUL man. He died trying to make the world a better place and I, along with so many others, truly respect that. He will ALWAYS be remembered as a HERO to his community and the people he helped out every day.

My thoughts are with your family, friends, and co-workers. I didn't have the opportunity to know you but I do realize your contribution to the city of St. Louis and society as a whole. Your mother seems to be a wonderful and forgiving person from what I've read. That tells me what kind of person you were. I wish I could be as forgiving but I'm not. We will miss you walking the beat. RIP my Brother.

To anyone who patrols the mean streets and put their lives on the line to make a community a better place, says a lot about a person.
