Reflections for Sergeant Scott Paul Lunger

Rest in peace Sergeant Lunger.

Rabbi Lewis S. Davis

Today, I will not answer the radio call that you boyfriend has come home drunk and is beating you again. Today I will not answer the radio call that your 16 year old daughter, who is very responsible, is four hours late coming home from school. Today I will not answer the radio call that your store has been robbed or your house has been burglarized. Today I will not stop a drunk driver from killing someone. I will not catch a rapist or a murder or a car theft. Today I will not answer the radio call that a man has a gun or tried to abduct a child or that someone has been stabbed or has been in a terrible accident. Today I will not save your child that you locked in the car or the child you were to busy to watch who went outside and fell into swimming pool. No, today I will not do that. Why? Because Today I was killed be a drunk driver while I was helping push a disabled car off the highway. Today I was was shot and killed during a routine traffic stop to simply tell someone that they has taillight out. Today I was killed in traffic accident rushing to help a citizen. Today I was shot and killed serving a warrant on a know drug dealer. Today I was killed be a man when I came by to do a welfare check because his family was to busy. Today I was killed trying to stop a bank robbery or a grocery store robbery. Today I was killed doing my job.

A chaplain and a officer will go to a house and tell a mom and dad or a wife or husband or mother or father I won’t be coming home today. The flags at many police stations were flown at half-mast but most people won’t know why. There will be a funeral and my fellow officers will come, a twenty-one-gun salute will be given, and taps will be played as I am laid to rest my name will be put on a plaque , on a wall , in a building, in a city somewhere. A folded flag will be placed on a mantel or a bookcase in a home somewhere and a family will morn.

There will be no cries for justices. There will be no riots in the streets. There will be no officers marching , screaming “no justice, no peace.” No citizens will scream that something must be done. No windows will be smashed, no cars burned , no stones thrown,no names called. Only someone crying themselves to sleep tonight will be the only sign that I was cared about.
I was a police officer

John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". 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.

Miss you dude. This has gotten so crazy, LEO can't even sit down and have a meal without getting shot now. Everyone is driving on, but we'll never forget. I know you'd be the first to lean in and say,'"Ya know......, we'll figure this out and just keep going and move onto the next big thing" I stop by now and again, make sure the spot is standing tall.

My condolences to Sgt. Lunger's family, friends, and fellow colleagues of the Haywood Police Dept. Romans 13:1 states "Let every person be in subjection to the superior authorities, for there is no authority except by God; the existing authorities stand placed in their relative positions by God." Many into today's society have no regard for secular authorities. I pray God's words bring all comfort. Revelation 21:3,4 reads " 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." What a wonderful prospect that we have of our loved ones that have fallen asleep in death.

I can't put into words how I feel. Before I retired due to a disability, I was a Radio Broadcaster for 30 years. I'm a former Aviator. I'm an NRA Certified Pistol Instructor. I'm used to speaking in Public, yet the murder of a Police Officer leaved me speechless. One of my CLOSEST Friends is a LEO in TX. All LEOs are like Brothers and Sisters to me.

Anyone rotten and FIENDISH enough to murder a LEO deserves HELL, whether it's on Earth, or in the Next Life. I can't put it any other way, except my heart BLEEDS for the fallen Officer(s) and their Families. Rest In Peace, all...
