Reflections for Police Officer Jason Scott Ellis

Our prayers got out to the family of Officer Ellis. Thank you, Sir, for your brave service. You can rest now, Sir, we will take it from here. You gave the ultimate payment with your life. Semper Fi!

This is a sad reflection of todays new society which has bred nothing but defective misfits that harbor a hatred and prejudice towards officers of law enforcement. I fear that these misfits are on the increase due to youtube and copwatchers as well as home-grown terrorists like constitutionalists who do not submit to authority. I wish to express my appreciation of officer Ellis who was a hero performing duties in serving the public when he was cowardly ambushed.

Wow so sad to see what this world has come to, I wish people would understand the values of all our men and women in uniform. People look at them as bad guy's because of the tickets and mistakes that many officers make, But what they don't realize is what would we do with out officers in the streets. I hope the person or people that did this pay the price death is to easy i believe in torture. May God stand along his family and may he rest with angels. My heart breaks to see this. RIP and plz bring this person or people to justice !!! :(

My sympathy to the family, friends, fellow law enforcement officers, and to Figo his beautiful K-9. I pray they find this murderer(s). This man is a hero, serving his community and he certainly deserves to have justice served. May God bless his soul.

For Police Officer Jason Ellis:

Our duty as law officers is fraught with risk and danger. Included is the potential for some persons in the public that we serve to seek revenge against a specific officer or any law-officer in general. We regret that Jason would be the next one in our ranks who would suffer and die at the hands of one who lays a trap and kills from the shadows. Jason died as most of us who are human and wear a badge sometimes fear if not for ourselves then for our families.
We rely upon all law-officers everywhere to make it a priority not rest until Jason's murderer is brought to justice. I can tell you from experience Jason's murderer will be found, as our law-enforcement bond with one another remains steadfast and determined. Forever.
We pray for Jason's family, friends, co-workers and all who care about him. May they be ready to reach-out to one another in the days ahead.
We are proud to render Officer Jason Ellis, a soldier-of-the-law, a final salute.

This is a sick sad world when someone with every reason in life to live is taken from us. The degradation and low point that social misfits are willing to crawl to is endless. Cowards need to ambush. Cowards have no backbone to face a strong soldier of justice. His death should be avenged and this or these twisted social garbage animals should be wiped off this planet. I hope they don't survive the trip to jail ! Make room in eternity for this soldier and allow him peace and his family eternal strength!

A portion of a letter from the pen of President Abraham Lincoln, printed in the Boston Evening Transcript on November 25, 1864.

“I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic (he) died to save. I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.
Yours, very sincerely and respectfully,
A. Lincoln”

Somebody killed a policeman today
And a part of America died...
A piece of our country he swore to protect
Will be buried with him at his side.
The beat that he walked was a battlefield, too,
Just as if he had gone off to war;
Though the flag of our nation won't fly at half-mast
To his name they will add a gold star.
The suspect that shot him will stand up in court
With counsel demanding his rights,
While a young widowed mother must work for her kids
And spend many long, lonely nights.
Yes, somebody killed a policeman today...
Maybe in your town or mine,
While we slept in comfort behind our locked doors
A cop put his life on the line.
Now his ghost walks the beat on a dark city street,
And he stands at each new rookie's side;
He answered the call... of himself gave his all,
And a part of America died...

RIP- Officer Ellis
Your sacrifice will never be forgotten. The citizens of this Commonwealth lost a true hero today, as did your family. But we can all rest assure that you are patrolling the beat with streets made of gold in Heaven with the rest of our fallen brethren.

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!
