Rip hero. We feel everyone of our brothers losses and to have to fall to such a coward I'm at a loss. I hope they have witnesses or cameras to give this guy the chair. Prayers to your family. I hope this guy wasn't doing this in a act to push gun violence up. Everyday it seems someone is doing that now and everyday it seems we lose another brother in blue. The world is evil stay vigilant at all times my brothers and sisters. Thank you for the heroic lesson. Every day one of us falls we leave a valuable selfless lesson behind to save so many others that represent the blue line. God bless everyone and stay safe.

We must believe that justice SHALL prevail. For it is written that good shall ALWAYS triumph over evil. In your memory, the law enforcement and criminal justice community shall continue to do their duty with honor, dignity and restraint.

There are no words to express the sadness I feel, desire to stop all the evil and provide solace toward your wife, children and all who cared for you.

Deputy Sheriff Darren Goforth, you have given of yourself completely and we can continue our pledge to protect and serve.

I forever thank you and your family for your many sacrifices as there is no way to repay this debt but to continue to bad with good, wrong with right and darkness with Light.

I am so sorry to hear of such a disaster of a kill. It just tears in to my soul that such a good man could be gunned down like that. Know that his family and his division are not the only ones who feel the pain of such a loss. God bless all our officers.

Our brother Darren Goforth taken too soon from a world that needs great people going above and beyond for those that need them. Another brother lost simply because he wore a uniform and badge.

You did your job with pride and honor everyday, you held the hands of people who were afraid, you walked through the darkest street to bring light & hope to many.

Thank-you for wearing the badge brother, you're courage & sacrifice will never be forgotten. Your blue family will never forget you.

May your soul rest in peace, go and walk heaven's beat because we have your six and we now have the watch.

ISAIAH 57: The good men perish; the godly die before their time and no one seems to care or wonder why. No one seems to realize that God is taking them away from evil days ahead. For the godly who die shall rest in peace.
