My friend, it's been 10 long years since you have been gone. We had so much fun going to school together but drifted apart afterwards. I will never forget the first time you saw me & pulled me over. On the inside I was fuming and mad as hell since I thought I was getting pulled over again for "driving while being a Black man" you asked for my name & registration then when I gave them to you, you lifted up your visor to reveal your smiling face. (Tears come to me eyes now just thinking about you) You laughed so hard at my shocked face. It was good seeing you again & catching up. Whenever we would see each other in the street we would talk & you quickly changed my opinions about cops. You really enjoyed what you did & how could all cops be bad if you were one now. I was devastated when I saw the news about your death. It still doesn't sit right with me. RIP my friend.

It’s truly a sad sad case when you’re shot by your fellow officers, boys in blue, they say. I can only imagine what those last moments must have been for you. Feelings of betrayal is what I assume. Though life continue to move on know that you aren’t forgotten and the world sees what they did to you, my brother. Rest as easily as you possibly can as we continue to fight this battle on earth. Love and blessings to your soul.

I met Will when he was in Walbrook around the age of 16 or so. Even as a young teen he displayed a lot of maturity for a young man. Stern on the surface but after a while a very nice, respectable, and decent person. I once saw him not to long before his passing getting out of a cop car and was so happy for dude that he had found a place in this world. Broke my heart to hear what happened. Sad

John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

6 years later. Time goes fast. I never knew this Police Officer, but some LODD's just have a way of sticking out in my memory... This one resurfaced this year to mine. I am praying for his fellow officers and family, especially today... Keep fighting the good fight.

Trying to hold down truth is like trying to hold a inflated football on the bottom of a lake. Sooner or later it will surface

My heart still aches. Gone but not forgotten cuz. I remember us both being in your sister's wedding and us having a ball, and you were telling me you want to be a police officer, cause you knew I was a deputy. Knowing you are with the Lord keeps me at peace.......but still greatly missed.

I regret that I did not know Officer Torbit but I am honoring his memorty by riding in his honor as part of Team Raleigh in the Law Enforcement United Memorial Ride. Rest in peace dear brother, you are gone before your time. For those who knew him, mourn not his death. Rather, celebrate his life and all of the good that came from his time on earth.
