In Honor of your Sacrifice and for your family and friends, I salute you as a HERO! May God
Give the family and friends the strength and faith to deal with this tragic loss. Words can not express my sorrow!

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

Officer Beck, it goes without saying that your death, which was so senseless, has LEOs across the country grieving LVMPD's loss and knowing that such circumstances could have or could befall them. After hearing of your death on national news, I took time to recall the years I was a patrolman and the hundreds of times citizens approached me during meal breaks to ask a question or state a complaint. It caused me shivers because never once did I think they were CCW & about to use it on me.
Though your death greatly saddens me and many thousands of police officers past and present along with millions of citizens around the country, it will not be in vain. LEOs everywhere will now receive additional training pertaining to the circumstances you faced; be on a more heightened state of personal security and the Feds have now created a special dept & task force to take seriously and combat domestic terrorists.
Now that you have your place in heaven, please be watchful & helpful to all those working the streets to assist the Lord in keeping them from harms way.

Young man, you have served and served well the badge with which you were entrusted and the people you protected. Though you must stand aside to let others take over in your place, you will not be forsaken nor forgotten my brother of the badge.

May you and Officer Soldo rest in peace and your families know you both are worthy of the title "HERO"

The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord;
he is their stronghold in time of trouble.
The Lord helps them and delivers them;
he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,
because they take refuge in him.

Rest in peace brother.

My tears are my words.
Why are we here again?
Dear Almighty God.

Our loved ones are saddened when they look
down and see us sad. This I know.
The love shared that is timeless and remains felt;
like their eternal touch on our arm;
is envied by those that have never felt and may never feel, that kind of love.

Respect and prayers for strength.
You are not alone.

"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."

Police Officer Alyn Beck,

When you made your decision to enter law enforcement some fourteen years ago you became blessed:

For the Lord said, "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God." Matthew 5:9 ESV

When you were enjoying a well deserved lunch break at a pizza restaurant in the 300 block of North Nellis Boulevard while on duty with your partner, Police Officer Igor Soldo, on Sunday, June 8, 2014 in your patrol jurisdiction of Las Vegas, Nevada, you answered God's call to serve:

And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then I said, "Here am I! Send me." Isaiah 6:8 ESV

As a result, you and your partner were approached by a male subject and female subject who immediately shot and killed you both execution-style; sacrificing your lives so that others might live and be protected:

And the Lord said, "Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13 ESV

I, along with your family, friends and comrades, will mourn your sacrifice and loss in the line of duty:

And the Lord said, "Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted." Matthew 5:4 ESV

Now go! Rise up! And do battle against Satan and his demons as an angel for the Lord!

In His Service,

Rest in Peace my brother, it is our watch now. My thoughts and prayers go out to your family, friends, and all my brothers and sisters of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

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 they 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,

Abraham Lincoln
