Though it's been 2years since your passing, it seems like yesterday when I saw your name on the ODMP page. Semper Fi, Rest easy brother...

The news of this shocked me to my core. To think that a man who whose responsibilities were to protect and serve us could do something like this is just unthinkable. My heart goes out to Officer Crain's family, and to all of the men and women of the Riverside Police Department. R.I.P Officer Crain. Semper Fi.

I have never met you yet I constantly think of you. You're family and close friends show how great of a person you are and that has taught me to enjoy the time I have with mine because you never know when it will be the last. I was impacted by you in many ways even though I never met you. May you're wife and family have ease and know that God is with them. Rest in peace

My deepest condolences to the family, members of the department, and those served, at the loss of this officer. May faith, family, friends and time join together to ease everyone’s pain at this time of loss.

While many other career choices were certainly available, this officer chose to protect his fellow man, and for this we give everlasting thanks. As the Good Lord hath said, “Blessed are the Peacemakers.”

Thank you for your service, your convictions and moral character, as well as your devotion to duty. May you now rest in peace, knowing your fellow brothers and sisters will watch over your family and continue the Watch!

Though I never knew him, he was part of my Law Enforcement family and I will mourn this deep loss the rest of my life. My heart aches with all the losses we have suffered, and continue to suffer, through the years. God is our only peace through such incidents & He will judge the guilty. May family & friends feel the presence of the "God of All Comfort" as they endure the distressing days ahead. I join them in their agonizing grief & remember them in my prayers.

Another senseless tragedy
Another day of grief,
Another day of praying
To help us find relief.

Relief from bitter anguish
Relief from rage so great,
Relief from lenient justice
Which continues to seal our fate.

Relief from heartache’s torment
As we continue on,
Oh, the awesome loss of brotherhood
Now that you are gone.

Though our hearts are deeply broken
And our tears forever flow,
There’s a comforting assurance
That now with God you go.

We know that you are welcome
Now at Heaven’s gate,
While meeting brothers & sisters
Who also met such fate.

The family of Law Enforcement
Knows no distance here or there,
And we recall in comfort
You await us there.
