As a resident of England Police Officers getting killed in the line of duty is somewhat rare, since discoving the Officer Down Memorial Page it saddens me greatly that this happens in the US and surrounding area on a nearly daily basis. These people are brave beyond belief, risking and sometimes losing their lives protecting others, they are all heros and should never by forgotten.
God bless you all

I never dreamed it would be me
My name for all eternity
Recorded here at this hallowed place
Alas, my name, no more my face

"In the line of duty" I hear them say
My family now the price will pay
My folded flag stained with their tears
We only had those few short years

The badge no longer on my chest
I sleep now in eternal rest
My sword I pass to those behind
And pray they keep this thought in mind

I never dreamed it would be me
And with heavy heart and bended knee
I ask for all here from the past
Dear God, let my name be the last

My deepest thoughts and prayers go to your family, friends, and co-workers during this tragic time...You are a true hero to all of the citizens of the City of Los Angeles, the State of California, and our wonderful country. I wish I could have been there to help you during your moment of truth---we would have suppressed this evil together, or would have fallen beside each other while trying. This is the bond that your brothers in uniform hold onto each day we go to work.

I've faced similar circumstances as those in which you fell. But by the grace of God, I had a reprieve of fate. Thank you for your selflessness in not only today's encounter, but for your entire adult life of serving to make our world a better place. We will continue these efforts for you now that you are gone. Salute.
