Patrolman Brickley, the only hope we can have for justice is that the driver who killed you truly saw the error of his ways and was wracked with guilt for the rest of his/her life.

Brother, God Bless you for your sacrifice and all who came after you feeling the loss.

Yesterday I saw your memorial plaque on Washington St in Roslindale. Killed Nov 25,1934 and thought how your family must have felt with Thanksgiving coming up. How you must have struggled in 1934 to provide for your family. My reflection is that I know that you must be in heaven because God needed you and you gave your all in the line of duty.

Just a fellow Boston citizen who cares

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 77th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace

Ptl. Brickley, today marks the 72nd anniversary of your passing from this life into the next. One cannot dwell on the careless person who caused your death, but on those who avoided injury or possibly death because you directed them away from danger.

You are a hero.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.
