I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

I'm watching it now. Had to Google info about the case and HANO.

So sick and tired of our officers being gunned down. When will they quit releasing thugs from jail for acts like attempted murder.

My sincere condolences to Patrolman Bennett's family, friends, and colleagues. Indeed, the bible states at 2 Timothy 3:1 we are living in "critical times". Many in today's society have absolutely no respect for "secular authorities" (Romans 13:1). I pray that God's promise recorded at Revelation 21:3,4 bring comfort over the loss of Patrolman Bennett "he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more. Neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away."

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when James was killed.

To the Bennett family, fellow officers, and all who call James beloved, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace. I hope that your family knows that a nation mourned for you.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Patrolman Bennett gave to his community and the citizens of Louisiana, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on May 24, 2015.

"Blue Spirited Watch"

Even though the many Law Enforcement Officers from all of our Neighboring Countries around this world have Fallen and Ended their Watch.

Their Devoted Spirits have Risen and are now carrying on their destinies up above in Heaven while awaiting to be rejoined in the distant future by the ones they love.
