Reflections for Police Officer Scott Thomas Patrick

Thank you Scott for helping me recover a car at 'Lucky 13's" didn't need to stop, but you did anyway. It was nice to find another friend in a different uniform.

For MHPD, your family and friends, a portion of a letter written by President Lincoln in November of 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”

For Officer Scott Patrick:

The duties of the law-officer are usually routine, and sometimes even mundane, until the worst occurs. The possibility of attack is present in every meet with the public and no situation is ever to be considered secure or safe, especially when alone. We regret that our brother Scott would be the next law-officer to lose his life in the process of keeping the public safe.
We are thankful for the quick apprehension of the perpetrator by fellow law-officers. May justice now be served.
We pray for Scott'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 Scott Patrick, a soldier-of-the-law, a final salute.
