They promise to protect and serve, when they leave their families they never know if they will return or not, this makes you hold your love ones closer and see that life is no guarantee. I will pray that his family and friends find peace somehow and forgiveness as not only their life been ruined but the shooters family is also grieving to. May peace find you all and God bless everyone and keep you in his arms and the angels wrap their wings around the family the heartbreak that this family and friends are going through I hope the angels help them.

"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."

As citizens, we often forget that a police officer's job is 24/7. It's so sad that Officer Winebrenner had to give his life to protect the public. My thoughts and prayers are with his family, especially his little daughter. I know there's a special place in heaven for our law enforcement heroes.

"It is not how these officers died that made them heroes, it is how they lived." This could not be any more accurate for Officer Winebrenner. Rest in peace sir.
