My deepest sympathy to the family of Officer Liu and the NYPD family as a whole. It is a terrible thing that happened. The City of New York will never know the loss it has suffered today. To the members of the NYPD, be strong, and stay safe, your pain is felt by the entire law enforcement community

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. ~John 15:13

RIP my brothers!

from the Book “Stories of Faith and Courage from COPS on the Street”

Dear Heavenly Father,
It was only a moment,
In that moment a madman walked by
In that moment the world was changed.
In that moment countless Lives, were altered utterly.
In that moment our hearts began breaking.
Now in these moments we speak names previously unknown:
But now with reverence, we utter their names.
In a moment our Line of BLUE stretched out across the nation.
That hard, fast and steady Line of BLUE had been breached.
In these moments now help us as we have all become a part of the Line of BLUE.
Dry our tears, comfort our broken hearts, strengthen our weaken knees, cure our confusion.
May the Line of BLUE draw a circle around us pulling back our hope.
May the Line of BLUE be a shield before us.
May this Line of BLUE carry us into the moments of our future.
A future made sure by their sacrifice in a moment.
It was only a moment and they were gone but
the Line of BLUE and we go on…

In honor of the fallen.

The mere fact that we are able to have the freedoms that we have are due to you and others in Blue. Your sacrifice will never be forgotten. Thank you for your service and God bless You!

RIP brother. People cannot conceive of the incredibly hard job we face now harder due to the large segment of cop-haters and race-baiters. Today is one of the lowers points in my 25 year career as a public servant.

The Final Inspection

The police officer 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, officer.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To my church have you been true?"

The police officer 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 police officer waited quietly,
For the judgement of his God.

"Step forward now, officer,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."

Our thoughts and prayers are with you Wenjian, your family
and all the members of the NYPD. You are a true American hero. It is so sad to hear about another brother in blue passing and you will remain in our hearts and minds forever. God Bless you. Rip

The New York City Police Department mourns this Christmas after two of its best police officers were taken just too soon. It will be a sad Christmas in the City of New York with two police officers being killed in the line of duty. Two more names will join other police officers who died this year will be added to the wall in Washington and the one in Albany.

Prayers to their family and friends at their loss. May GOD strengthen them through this difficult time. Our thanks to the Officers who pursued the Subject responsible for the death of the officers.

We offer our heartfelt sympathy to the family, friends and colleagues of Officer Liu and we honor his distinguished service to the cause of justice and peace. Sadly, our nation has lost one of its finest citizens, a community has lost a friend and protector, and a family has lost an example of character and courage who they will love and respect forever.

To the family of Officer Liu, I would like you to know that a lot of people pray for you, and my hope is that their prayers will give you strength and comfort during this difficult time. In the days to follow, may you be strengthened by the fact that Officer Liu is a man distinguished by exceptional courage and will always be admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities. You, your family, and your sacrifice will never be forgotten.

Condolences from Australia. Police have one simple goal in their job, to keep us the public safe and secure. It is a tragedy more public don't realise this and fail to see society ripping itself apart.
