Reflections for Detective Peter John Figoski

To the Figoski family:
I live in Amsterdam, NY which is about 40 minutes east of Albany(exit 27 off the thruway). Anyway, I saw the news today(1-27-13) and read that the two scumbags that killed Detective Figoski are now on trial for murder. Out of respect for the immediate family, I will not name them. They plead not guilty and are attempting to use the 'it was an accident' plea. Never fear, the courts are smarter than that and I firmly believe that these animals will get what they deserve. My condolences to Detective Figoski's family.

To Detective Figoski's family:
This was a senseless murder of a wonderful person who gave his life to protect strangers like us in the street! More needs to be done to make sure this does not become the norm. Better laws and more prisons!! So sorry for your loss. One year later it feels like it just happened yesterday! RIP Det. Figoski!!! NEVER FORGOTTEN!!!!

One year ago today in support of fellow MOS and our fallen brother P.O. Peter John Figoski! And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. Revelation 21:4

It's almost a year and I still think about you and the love ones that were left behind. I still have them in my thoughts and prayers, for I know to clearly that time doesn't always heal all wounds.

But to his family I say, feel his love and warmth in the memories made together.

My Boyfriend works at the 75 Precinct Day Tour for the past 6 years and encountered Mr. Figoski a few times and always said how kind he was.
He still remembers how Mr. Figoski was struggling with something on the computer and when he showed him how to fix the issue he was so happy and thankful for my boyfriend's assistance.
When he arrived home from his funeral he was just devastated and the loss and seeing his family's anguish just gutted him.
I can only hope that when Mr. Figoski's family saw the thousands that attend his funeral that maybe perhaps there was some sort of comfort in that.

God Bless Pete Figoski and his Family!!!

Peter I never had the honor to work with you but i meet and work with alot of people that worked with you and let me tell you not one has said bad things. It broke my heart to see your Daughter cry when there hero father was taken from them. As i read these Reflections i get emotional thinking about the events and how they happened. May you rest in peace Brother i hope one day i will grow into the officer you were.
