My hear breaks for Officer Beck, his family, brothers and sisters in blue, and the entire Burns Flat community. He was a true hero and will never be forgotten. To the family, please lean on your LE family, as they will be your strength from here on out. I lost my 29 year old son and love of my life, Officer Casey Kohlmeier & his K-9 Draco, in the line of duty when a drunk driver killed them 3 months ago, on October 30, 2013, in Pontiac, IL, and I could not make it without their continued love and support of my family. Every day is a new challenge, and I will be honest with you, it still feels like yesterday. Everyone says the pain will be easier to bear in the days and years ahead, and tho it has only softened a bit, the LE community and COPS organization have been godsends to us. I will pray for you all to get through this with us and give us strength for each new day. God bless you all.

"The Final Inspection"
The policeman 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, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"
The policeman 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 got just 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 policeman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."

On behalf of the Westerville, Ohio Division of Police, our thoughts and prayers are with the immediate family of Undersheriff Brian Beck and the extended law enforcement family of the Washita County, Oklahoma Sheriff's Office. Rest in Peace brother and watch over us.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.
