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.

We miss these Brave Souls and have a stern warning from the Dallas incident ( along with the Roane County incident in WV) that without these selfless individuals We will be deferred back to the dark ages when law enforcement was unheard of.

It is really sad to hear very sad news like this one in particular. I have a lot respect for State Troopers, especially for those working in West Virginia. I know how hard is for them to do their jobs over there. People have little respect for Law Enforcement Officers there, and Troopers have to deal with all kinds of people on a daily basis. God Bless them all.

Two very brave and courageous men have given their lives for their community. They are true heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice. I hope the community will show its outrage, as well as appreciation for the sacrifice Trooper WORKMAN and his partner made. My deepest sympathies and prayers to the family, friends and brother/sister Troopers of Trooper WORKMAN and Cpl. BAILEY. May the memory of your service, heroism and sacrifice remain forever. May God bless you and your families. AC
