Reflections for Patrolman Jonathan Keith Molina

So live your life so the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their views, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and of service to your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide. Always give a word or sign of salute when meeting or passing a stranger if in a lonely place. Show respect to all people, but grovel to none. When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life and strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies in yourself. Touch not the poisonous firewater that makes wise ones turn to fools and robs them of their visions. When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.

We do what we do because it's a calling not a job.

To those who have fought, to those who have fallen.
To those of us who continue to fight.

Now you watch over us partner

God didn’t promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain; but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears and light for the way.

Rest in peace.

We last talked when you rolled up to a convenience store that I was checking, to see if I needed assistance. That's the kind of police officer you were and you will be sorely missed. I only wish that I could have rolled up when you needed help. R.I.P. brother.

For Police Officer Jonathan Molina:

The duty of a police officer not actively engaged in work hours is always questioned either by the public or those who supervise him or her. Anyone who wears a badge realizes that it takes exceptional courage to confront law breakers when all the usual tools to provide immediate assistance are not readily present. The consequences can be severe, as in this incident involving our brother Jonathan. He had immense courage to confront law-breakers when he was outnumbered. We regret that Jonathan would be the next law-officer to die at the hand of street-scum, punks and killers. As always, an apprehension of those responsible was made in a timely manner, and will continue, no matter how long, nor how many of us, it takes. This positive and effective investigative follow-up action will always, and in every case, be the same everywhere - forever.

We pray for Jonathan's family, friends, co-workers and those who care about him. May they be ready to reach-out to one another in the days ahead.

We are proud to render a final salute to Officer Jonathan Molina, a soldier of the law.

Cpl. Ralph D. Fiorenza (Ret.)
Pennsylvania State Police
