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.
Psalms 37:39-40
Rest in peace brother.

Another hero has given his life for the pursuit of justice. An incredibly selfless sacrifice that few citizens will ever truly understand or would ever be commited to make.

Rest in Peace my brother, we will never stop fighting the war against crime. We will continue the fight to "Put the bad guys in jail". We will not be intimidated or discouraged by cowards. Because of your sacrifice, our job it that much clearer.

Our mission know is to honor the badge, maintain the integrity, fight to the end and never forget you!!!

Rest in Peace my brother, we got from here!!!!!

Thank you for your sacrifice Tater. To Tater's family: Your husband, daddy and brother gave his life doing what he loved. Most men won't have that said of them when they die. Cherish the memories and remember the good times. He was a fine lawman and person and will be missed. I'm proud to say I knew a hero and his name was Chris "Tater" Smith. I look forward to seeing you in Glory brother.
