As a retired police officer, i feel so sad for him. he had a great future ahead.

How proud one must be to be a police officer. I believe I see that pride and happiness in the above photo of officer Tate.

I know he earned that pride and it was not easy to get that badge. It is said that pride is one of the 7 deadly sins but I feel that pride in doing something you know is so very right and in protecting the weak, young, old and sick cannot be a sin.

Though our loved ones would not agree, perhaps it is best to live one day as a lion, than to live a lifetime as a sheep. I cry at the loss of young officer Tate and maybe it is wrong to express my anger on these memorial pages but just the mention of that anger tells that it is there.

The great things he would have done; the lives he would have saved and the honor he did preserve and would continue to preserve.

I do not want to make this about me and my pain and anger but what are we going to do? It's not getting better out there but worse. What are we going to do about it?

Dear Almighty God.

I know the loved ones that look down to us from heaven,
are saddened when we are sad and they say to please be grateful for the love and laughter we have shared down here. They ask us to pray for those that have never and will never been blessed with the love and family that we have shared.

Please know you are not alone and lean on those that surround you now and know and share your loss.

With all respect.

Dear Almighty God.

We Salute Our Fallen Brother

For I’m already being poured out like a drink offering,
And the time has come for my departure; I have fought
The good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
Now there is in store for me a crown of righteousness…2 Timothy 4:6-8.

The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will
Of God lives forever…1 John 2:17

Today we stand to salute our brothers’ departure from here
He’ll leave behind a family and those who hold him dear
In a career he served where all give some, yet he gave his all
He leaves this earth behind as he received his final call

The risks he faced on this final tour was one of a unique kind
His bravery surpassed his courage at last he leaves a world behind
Everyday he’ll be remembered for all the special things he did
He patrolled the streets as Gods chosen servant to him goodbye we bid

Don’t worry our brother in blue you’ll always be a part of our mind
We’ll always recall the bright face you bore one that’s so very kind
The hours you spent making a difference protecting all mankind
You stood your watch and kept the faith of one so hard to find

We Salute Our Fallen Brother for the impeccable job he done
You walked tall on duty with integrity second to no one
The beat you worked was like a battlefield in a society filled with change
Yet you never wavered in your commitment to a job that somehow was strange

The flag of our nation will not fly at half mast across the entire USA
But trust us dear brother with taped badges we honor you this way
A symbol of a fallen brother that graced our presence everyday
We’ll always salute the job you performed before you went away!

Officer Tate, you gave your all for the sake of others and we all owe you a debt of gratitude. We don't know what the outcome will be for your murderers, but we can only pray true justice finds them, if not in this world, then in the next.

My prayers are with your loved ones and all those who will forever keep you in their hearts and minds so as to never really lose you.

God Bless and may you rest eternally in Heaven, Brother.

Being sheepdogs is dangerous and difficult work at best. These two young men gave it all they had to give. May their families find peace and comfort that only GOD can give in these times. Brothers in Blue, now and forever.

Outside of the Law Enforcement Community few understand the anguish and pain every LEO current or retired feels upon the death of a brother or sister. We know every aspect of the treacherous path of such a tragedy and who is inflicted with its grief. The tears are many and the solace few. Their families are diverse from blood relatives to "blood brothers". Every limb of the community will bruise and scar and the healing will only come from within the bosom of a better humanity than we see right now.
