SGT it was a pleasure working with you. You were always a stand up guy when i first met you at South East Division. Last time we spoke was in the dreadful CORE class. You had a lot of wisdom and always tried to share it with the younger officers. It breaks my heart to see you go, but I know you did more than enough not just for the public but most importantly for other officers. Rest easy sir!

For: Sergeant Michael Smith, DPD, Senior Corporal Lorne Ahrens, DPD, Police Officer Michael Krol, DPD & Police Officer Brent Thompson, DARTPD:

Our nation is repulsed by the mass killings of Dallas' soldiers-of-the-law by an individual acting purely on his own and in a vicious and senseless manner. As Americans we have only to bear the shame of this war among ourselves and based upon nothing more than suspicion, hate and revenge for wholesale allegation, if any at all.
We regret this day and appeal to the public at large to reject such actions outside of what is in our laws and in our government and those who are appointed and elected to maintain peace among us. Many failures are apparent, but none more horrifying than a self-appointed vigilante creating only chaos and mob action by persons unwilling to permit justice to rule.
We pray for and work toward restoration of trust, honor and reconciliation to be restored to both city and nation where we each dwell and each maintain our families.
We offer a final salute to those who stand among the most courageous and fearless among us - these Dallas heroes who gave their very lives keeping others safe.

Sergeant Smith, thank you sir for your service. The domestic terrorist racist coward who murdered you obviously could not face you man to man to settle any problems he had with the police. I am hoping his family receives his remains in several pieces, as he deserves no respect from anyone. We will keep your family and Department in our thoughts. Please watch over us as we carry on.

TO THE FAMILY, FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES OF DALLAS POLICE DEPARTMENT, SERGEANT MICHAEL SMITH.

My heart is filled with great sadness at learning of the lost of your loved one and fellow Officer.
We in the law enforcement community are a family, although our uniforms may be a different style and vary in color, a badge, shield or star may be pinned upon our chest.
Our areas of enforcement may vary but our goals are the same, to Serve and Protect our communities. We consist of many different agencies from across the nation, for we are: Municipal Police Officers, Sheriff's Deputies, State Police Investigators, State Highway Patrol Troopers, Conservation Police Officers, College Campus Police Officers, Correctional Officers and Federal Agents just to name a few.
We patrol small towns, large cities, college campuses, county roads, state highways, state prisons, county jails, state parks and the United States Borders.
Whether active duty or retired, we are one family, a Law Enforcement Family, the thin blue line of protectors, brothers and sisters bonded together by HONOR, SERVICE and PRIDE.
Daily we honor our fallen brothers and sisters never forgetting their sacrifice and the sacrifice of their families.
Daily our position is clear that we will Serve and Protect our communities without faltering and with no hesitation.
Daily we show pride in our chosen profession LAW ENFORCEMENT, for we willingly walk the line of good over evil facing the unknown with courage keeping our trust and faith in GOD.
We know that evil roam these streets and at any moment in the course of performing our duties the ultimate sacrifice might be required of us in the service to our community, for Law Enforcement is not a job but a calling and only a few will make the decision to commit to that calling to serve for some will give all that they have.
ALL LIVES MATTER! and LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS should be respected - If we don't respond to that call for help, or investigate that suspicious subject, or stop for that stranded motorist, or rush to that call of shots fired then who will?
SERGEANT SMITH
You did not die in vain.
You sacrificed your life in the service to the citizens in the City of Dallas in the State of Texas with HONOR, PRIDE and DISTINCTION.
I'm proud to have worn the uniform of a law enforcement officer like you did.
I'm proud to have pinned the badge upon my chest like you did.
I'm proud to have served and protected my community as you did.
I'm proud to call you my BROTHER!
I commend you my fallen brother for making the ultimate sacrifice in the performance of your duty.
For you left us doing what you chose to do.
Performing a job you were trained to do.
Upholding the oath you swore to do.
Most importantly doing what you loved to do..........Serving and Protecting your community with Honor and Pride making a better and safer place for us all.
FOR THOSE WHO FIGHT FOR IT, "LIFE HAS A FLAVOR THE PROTECTED WILL NEVER KNOW".
FINAL CALL
Sergeant Smith status..............Sergeant Smith status.............. Sergeant Smith status............Attention All Units....................... Dallas Police Department, Sergeant Michael Smith having served the citizens in the City of Dallas in the State of Texas with HONOR, PRIDE and DISTINCTION is now 10-42.
Rest in Peace my fallen Brother, YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!!!
