Deputy Goforth you have walked the walk and talked the talk of being a law man which is something most people never get to do. Police work is a thankless job but we do it because we are special people who think we can make a difference in peoples lives. We do it knowing that is our lives are at risk. We believe our calling came from God and I for one believed it then and I still do. I grieve the loss of a brother who gave his all for no reason. Every stop a police officer makes can be the last stop they will ever make. I pray for your soul and I pray for your family and the brothers in blue you worked with. God said "be still for I am God. I will not leave you or forsake you". God bless you my friend.

Such an atrocious event. All because you stood proud in your uniform; protecting and serving others. You have been taken away from your family, friends, co-workers, and the citizens you served. Taken away by a vicious act of hatred. There is no way to surmise how or why this happened. I pray to God to be with your family each day as they grieve your loss. I pray to God for all those that have been affected by this tragedy. I pray for a more peaceful world to live in with more people who respect all lives; especially the lives of those that have the best interest of others and go to work every day to protect and serve. I pray you rest in peace sir!
