God Interviews A Cop

The Cop stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining
Just as brightly as his brass.

"Step forward now, Cop.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you alway turned the other cheek?
To my Church, have you been true?"

The Cop squared his shoulders and said,
"No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges
Can't always be a Saint.

I've had to work most Sundays,
And at times my talk was rough,
And sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.

But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep.
Though I worked a lot of overtime,
When the bills just got too steep.

And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.

If you've a place for me here, Lord,
It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't...I'll understand."

There was silence all around the throne
Where the Saints had often trod.
As the Cop waited quietly,
For the judgement of his God.

"Step forward now, Cop,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in Hell.

Thank you, your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

We are at war; a war against anarchy and injustice. It is a battle worth fighting...for the civilized world depends on the strong to defend the weak, to protect the oppressed from tyranny, the victim from the predator. All who wear the shield must grasp the imperative to stand resolute in the vangard of freedom. Deputy Coleman will not be forgotton and others will carry the torch. Rest in PEace.

Condolences to all friends, family, and co-workers.

Once again evil has raised its ugly head to attack and destroy the very fabric of honor. This Deputy has not died in vain but will live on in the hearts and minds of those fellow LEOs that know too well the pain of sacrifice. God rest his soul and I pray for peace in the hearts and minds of those who have been left behind to grieve
