Reflections for Trooper First Class Wesley Washington John Brown

Lord Jesus, as we watch America’s Peace Officers succumb to the wicked and evil in this world, Shot and Killed in the Line-of-Duty, it becomes difficult for us to pick up and move forward. Our communities are on the brink of exploding with tension. In light of the peace officers who are no longer with us, I pray for endurance for our communities and law enforcement agencies. Carry us through this time of strife, that through our struggles, our bonds may grow even more unbreakable. In Your mighty and holy name, I pray. Amen.

Holy Scriptures on Law Enforcement’s Mission:

“For the policeman [peace officer] does not frighten people who are doing right; but those doing evil will always fear him. So if you don’t want to be afraid, keep the laws and you will get along well. The policeman [peace officer] is sent by God to help you. But if you are doing something wrong, of course you should be afraid, for he [the peace officer] will have you punished. He [the peace officer] is sent by God for that very purpose. Obey the laws, then, for two reasons: first, to keep from being punished, and second, just because you know you should.” [Romans 13:3-5 TLB]

[Jesus Said,] “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.” [John 15:13 ESV]

And he [Jesus] said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise.” [Luke 23:43 ESV]

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons [children] of God.” [Matthew 5:9 ESV]

“And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” [Isaiah 6:8 ESV]

I just attend the trooper orientation in May and I respect the dedication that this officer display towards their fellow man and that is why I want to be one of them. After been in the Army for 23 years I am going to be to serve others again. People like Trooper First Class Brown will serve as inspiration to achieve my goal.

I remember at Orientation Trooper first class Hooper was talking about the night Trooper First class Brown was killed while doing security detail at a restaurant. It is soo sad. I never knew Trooper Brown but it is saddened what has happened to him that night. And I hope once I get into the MDSP that I will make it home safely each day.

I didn't know Trooper Brown, but I will never forget him. His death was senseless & such a waste of a good man. I pray that his brother and others who took up his cause will carry on to give the children of his community the right role model for life that he was.
I no longer live in the DC area, but my heart broke along with your own when I learned of his death. May God bless his family and those of us who have heroes in our own families who stand for law and order and do what is right.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the second anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace

I pray for the solace of all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace. Thanks to your friends for sharing their memories and devotion to you through their reflections.

A little more than a day from now makes one year since we lost you. Tomorrow, there's a ceremony at the academy in your honor. I don't really know how I'll feel seeing the same repeated picture I've seen countless times over the past year sprawn across that monitor. Your death has changed me. One thing is for certain. The way you lived your life has changed me for the better. I will always remember you for who you were, a true friend. I can't say I can call many as consistent a friend as you were in such a short time of knowing one another. You are truly missed Wes and I will forever keep your legacy alive.
