Reflections for Patrolman Michael James Crawshaw

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.

God bless the Crawshaw family

My thoughts and prayers go out to Mike's family, friends, co-workers and to my friends at the Penn Hills Police Department. A valuable life was lost and a hero made over $500. These senseless killings have got to stop and we as law enforcement officers have to stick together and see that these thugs are brought to justice. Mike, your death will help us get stronger and see to it that justice prevails now and forever. Rest in peace my brother.

His Judgment Day:
The officer stood and faced his God, Which must always come to pass. He hoped his shoes were shinning, Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, Officer, How shall I deal with you? Have you always turned the other cheek To my church have you been true?"
The officer squared his shoulder and said, "No, Lord, I guess I aint, 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 tough.
But I never took a penny That wasn't mine to keep.. Though I worked a lot of overtime, when the bills got 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 an unmanly tear.
I know I don't deserve a place among the people here. They never wanted me around except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here, Lord, it needn't be so grand. I never expected or had too much, But if you don't...I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne, where the saints often trod. As the officer waited quietly for the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, Officer. You've borne your burdens well. Come walk a beat on heaven's streets, You've done your time in hell"
