While I did not know Officer Durman personally, I would like to offer my heartfelt condolences to his family and his brothers and sisters of the LFPD. It is a tragedy to lose a life so needlessly, but even moreso when that life was so young and full of promise.
My thoughts are with all who knew and loved this courageous young man.

"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.

I am greatful for all that bryan has done for us. He was here trying to make a diffrence in this ever changing community we live in. He was doing his part to help change it and make it better and I am sad that he is gone. It's sad when any Police officer looses his life to protect ours. These guys are amazing they wake up everyday and go to work not thinkin about whats going to happen they dont think im going to save the world. They think I want to make a diffrence and i have bills to pay just like the rest of us. Bryan was called out on a noise violation. Sometimes we take forgranted what these guys do everyday even what should be the simplest things. My kids are growing up in this community and I want to think all of you for doing your part to keep them safe.

Im sorry for takeing you guys forgranted. I am greatful for you and all that you do even the simple things.
