Officer Crawford, I thank you for your service in helping to keep safe, one of America's most vital assets, its Railroads. The railroad is one of the reasons that this country became what it is today and women and men like you have always been needed to protect that asset. Sadly, too many railroad executives are these days forgetting the vital work you do and dismissing the Railroad Cop as an unnecessary expense. I feel we'll all suffer for it in the long run.

You are a hero. According to the Memorial Page it says that the suspects were found nearby, DEAD and that it is believed that you got them before passing. If this is true, I applaud your toughness and that you got some justice for the heinous acts of these two swine.

God Bless and may you forever Rest in Peace, Brother.
