Reflections for Police Officer Norvelle Brown

To the family of Officer Brown:

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.

As a former resident of north St. Louis and Vashon class of '75, my prayers go out to all who Officer Brown touched in his short, but gallant life.

There are no words to say to take away the pain that you and your family is feeling at this hour. However, God must have had other plans for this fallen officer. Just know that he is in a better place and he was doing what he loved to do. He wanted to make a difference and you can be rest assured that he did just that and touched the hearts of many. He will never be forgotten and he will leave on in your hearts through spirit and through memories. It is sad that such a senseless tragedy had to happen however, all things happen for a reason and we may not always know that reason but GOD knows and he makes no mistakes. Therefore, whenever you are feeling sad you just stick with it and say Lord Have Mercy because you know what it is to be Born Again and you know GOD will never leave your nor foresake you. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

It saddens me to see any young person lose their life. This young man was attempting to make a difference in someone's life. But through it all, God is who we should focus on. Our Father is watching and taking in all the good and the bad, evaluating and placing us where we should be placed. Keep the faith and thank God those boys were caught. I am the mother of a young officer who cried all night when she heard of this. She even considered quitting. Her goals were to protect the young and that's why she joined. I pray daily and nightly for all those brave men and women in the streets. May God continue to bless your family and keep Him in your hearts. Love always.

Officer Brown,

Thank you for your service, your dedication to duty, and your commitment to fighting crime. I lost my good friend and partner in a similar, senseless, line of duty shooting. It is a horrible shame that you were taken from us. You are a true hero, and you make me proud to be a Police Officer.

Thank you,

An Angel In The Sky Must Leave His Place Of Rest,
Gently Tucking His Wings Beneath His Armored Vest.
For Duty Has Called, There Is Much Work To Do
Little Did He Know, This One Is Dressed In Blue.
Arriving On The Scene, He Knows Just What To Say,
"Follow Me, Fallen Brother, I'll Show You The Way."
"Your Duty Has Ended, Your Work Is Now Through."
"Come Hang Your Hat Beside Mine, I'm A Cop, Too."

Rest in Peace Brother......

Officer Brown we are proud of you. You had a goal to help
those in your neighborhood to make their lives better and a safer place to live. What a senseless act to take your life! We pray that for many this will be a "Wake-Up Call".
I'm very saddened that you had to pay the price.

Whenever a story like this comes about the though always crosses my mind. How can anybody have the intention to hurt a perfect strange whos duty is to protect you and put their life in danger in order to save yours? Officer Brown was here at home in the middle of the war being waged on St Louis's streets today. Though he was only on the force a year he had the opportunity to impact many lives. Rest in Peace Officer Brown. You will not be forgotten!

Its so sad to hear of another officers death, even though we are so far away, but its is even sadder that you died so young. Rest in peace.

I can't help but to be saddened by this. It doesn't occur to me how anybody could ever want to intentionally harm someone who, at moments notice would protect them with their own life, no questions asked. Growing up I always had respect for law enforcement. Officer Brown gave the ultimate sacrifice. He fought in the war being waged on St. Louis's streets everyday. He will never be forgotten for that i'm sure. My deepest condolences to the family of officer brown. Though he died young, he has done so much.


August 19, 2007

To Officer brown family my heart goes out to your lost. Its a sacrifice we all make and think about from time to time doing this job. My prayers and thoughts are with you. RIP OFC BROWN!
