"A MAN IN BLUE"

A man in blue has lost his life
in service of law.
The love that makes this sacrifice
is the greatest love of all.

A Police man was killed today,
the reason I cannot say.
I don't know why he had to die.
The man in blue died for me and you;
we must remember him too.

Flags fly low, let use bow in prayer
for fallen police men everywhere;
and remember this:
that they are missed.
The badge burns bright like an evening star
free from a world of war.

Rest in peace Officer Diamond. Thank you for your sacrifice.

Deeply saddened but forever greatful of Shaun's service to Los Angeles and my neighbor city of Pomona.. As a former SWAT officer I know very we'll of the extreme dynamics Shaun encountered upon the breach. Shaun is a hero his partners are heroes. My families heart sank upon hearing the early morning news and watching the procession on TV. We had just paid our respects to Jordan Covina PD and now this..

May The Lord and his sovereign arrangement apply the hands of Love to Shaun's family and closest friends..

May the gavel of justice serve the most sever consequence to Mr Martinez

Shaun, you were one tough Irishman. I'll never forget the last time I saw you. Just a few months ago after my allied agency ride along with your partner and my best friend, Chris, we all went EOW, and the three of us all hung out for a bit afterward talking about life. Although I work for an allied agency, you, your partner, and several other coworkers have always included me and treated me as one of your own, as I was the token CHiPpy. I never thought I wouldn't see you again. I thought it would be St Patty's day at the latest. I guess it will be much longer than that. I'll toast one for you today, my Irish brother. Until we meet again one day, warrior.

"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."

Avenue of the Fallen

Standing at attention in their class “A“uniforms, badges gleaming and shoes like glass, are your brothers and sisters of Law Enforcement. All of whom have previously paid the ultimate price.
Today, like many others, they welcome you to this wonderful place.
As you march down the Avenue of the Fallen, all eyes focus on you as if to say “it’s OK, you’re with your eternal partners.”
A salute is followed and a tear can be seen on so many faces.
Welcome, you served well.
Now come join us in the ranks, another is coming home.
