Reflections for Corporal Harry Lane Thielepape, Jr.

Even personal injury did not deter Corporal Thielepape from his duty. It is because of him and many others like him that we have a measure of peace. I honor this great hero. He will not be forgotten.

Harry - Rest in peace Corporal. I will always remember my first day at Precinct 6 back in 1998 because on that day we rode together. We got in a chase, and the suspect vehicle crashed into an abandoned building and you jumped out of the vehicle and caught the suspect who ran on foot. I will also always remember you for asking me how to get a copy of the C.O.P.S. theme so it could be your ring tone on on your cell phone and on the computer on your desk. You were an important member of Precinct 6 and you will be missed. You and your family are in my prayers. - Rest In Peace Corporal

My Brother

Although I never met him, I knew him.

He was idealistic and believed he could make a difference.

He was immensely proud of the uniform and the badge and what

they represent.

He felt privileged to be of service to his department, his

community and to his country.



He was a cop.



Although I never met him, I knew him.

He was friendly, courteous, and polite, yet firm.

He laughed and joked, but was serious when necessary.

He was competent, trained, and professional.



He was a cop.



Although I never met him, I knew him.

He had a strong sense of right and wrong and became

frustrated when true justice became sidetracked.

He felt the sharp criticism that goes with the job, but he

never wavered.

He stood by and for his fellow officers.



He was a cop.



Although I never met him, I knew him.

He longed for his family during the long hours.

He worried about them during his shifts and the lonely

weekends,holidays and midnights when they were apart.

He felt guilty about the lost time, but knew his calling

and prayed they would understand.



He was a cop.



Although I never met him, I knew him.

He was a good son, a loving husband, and a devoted father.

He was dedicated to the profession and cared about the

people he served.

He wanted to do the best job that he could and strived to

be the best he could be.

He was a good citizen and a good neighbor.



He was a cop.

Yes, I did know him.



He was a cop, he was my brother.

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.
What a tragedy to lose another officer at the hands of someone that didn't have any value to another's life.
Cpl Thielepape will always be a HERO to all of us. He showed great courage and probably saved a lot more lives by his actions.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL

Having lived in Harris County some years ago, I can well remember that the area is anything but safe, and that decent human life can be cheaper than dirt to some. (Un fortunately, those "some", seem to be the very same turds that our court and parole systems eagerly recycle into our streets).

I have always believed that those who honorably serve in Law Enforcement not only serve we the people, but that ultimately, they serve God and Jesus in the never ending fight of keeping evil at bay. And the thought that comes to my mind is to quote Jesus Himself. "He who loves his life shall lose it. He who loses his life for MY sake, the same shall save it". With this in mind, I am confident where Corporal Thielepage is now. And I hope that those who love him, can find enormous comfort in that. And may God be with them and comfort them.

THANK YOU, Sir, for your bravery, and your sacrifice. The fight against evil has been with us since the days of Adam and Eve. I believe that most of us know that we ourselves can never win that fight. But with good men and women like you Sir, we will never lose that fight, either. Your courage, your resolve, and your dedication did not save your life on this earth. It did however, save the lives of those citizens that your murderer would have victimised, had you not paid the ultimate price to stop him. It may be very difficult at times to accept, but there are in fact a few of us citizens who realize this, and are grateful. And I hope that those brave souls who now carry on your watch without you can realize and find some satisfaction in that.

May God hold in His arms, those who must some how carry on without you.

GOD BLESS YOU SIR!

George Littlejohn

Sending lots of prayers and sympathy out to your family, friends, and entire department. I am sure you are not suffering any more, but are in the loving arms of God, high up in the heavens above. You will not be forgotten! You gave the ultimate sacrifice in serving the citizens of this nation. "A Hero does not become a Hero by their death, but by how they lived their life." God Bless!

My New Watch

I began my new watch today and everything’s going fine.
I just wanted to let you know that I would be checking in on you from time to time.

It’s really different here, but in a good way,
Although the change was sudden, rest assured there is nowhere else I’d rather stay.

I work with a crew of true heroes, who always do their best,
They always do their part, and watch over all the rest.

I can’t change what happened on that fateful night
But remember that I will forever continue to fight.

Please tell my family I love them and I’m with them all the time.
Help my wife when I can’t and give a kiss to that sweet child of mine.

I walk a new beat that seems so far away
But you can reach me, and I’ll back you up, you only have to pray.

I have to go now for there’s a rookie on the street.
I have to do my part, for it’s not his time to walk this special beat.

In memory of all our fallen brother’s and sisters of Law Enforcement

D/S T. Arnold 416

You fought like a warrior Corporal Thielepape. Rest easy now, we will continue the fight in your honor. See you in Heaven.
