I worked with this officer along time ago, when I first started with the Department Of Corrections and I am still hurting over what happened to him, I just want to Thank our Government for what happened by taking away the death sentence in Delaware, now they have nothing to loose even if they serving a life sentence, I saw some of our elected officials at the services and it made me sick to see them there, I feel they are pretty much the blame for what happened to Lt. Steven Floyd, So thanks again to our elected officials, You have done your damage and probably going to see more of the same in the future with ruling against the Death Penalty

We never know what a day in the Prison might bring, we watch each other's back, and keep our back to the wall. We have eight hours to think, the inmates have 24.
May our brothers, and sisters find peace, and show honor to a LT that put his life on the line, and knew what walking behind those walls signified, perhaps not going home at the end of a watch. Only God knows our destiny. RIP LT.

LT. Floyd died a hero.
Other officers that were responding to the code he hollered to them it was a trap and to get out of the building. Saving the lives of a few officers at the expense of his own.
During day to day operations he was a great officer that ran a tight building. He mentored many junior officers to make the department a better place. He will missed by all at the department.

A Corrections Officer’s Burden

As the fallen officer stood in silence,
to learn his fate from G-d
he was asked to explain his sins
and if he had anything more to add

As the man reflected on his past
and what he was to tell
he thought for sure, that he would burn
eternally in hell

He swallowed the lump in his throat,
and wiped the sweat from his brow
and began to confess his sins
and tell all there was to tell

He started with tales of anger
how many times he swore
how one night, he hit a man...
half out of spite, half out of fear

He spoke of tears of anguish
when he saw a young C/O die
and how pure hatred ran through his veins
toward the convict that took his life

He said I know I often missed church
and i know that this is bad
but many Sundays I had to work
and also missed being a dad

Several times I returned home
troubled by the day
many times lost in thought
I forgot to pray

When the man was finished
his heart filled with deep regret
there were many things unfinished
so many things left unsaid

He thought of how his life
has gone by, oh so fast
now it was his turn
to be a prisoner of his past

When the L-rd spoke,
the man was caught by surprise
he felt tears streak down his face
coming from both eyes

You served me well said the L-rd
you paid an awe full price
very few could have handled
the obstacles I put in your life

At times you strayed from my path
but this is understood
I never expected perfection
I never wanted priesthood

I placed you in the depth of darkness
and you survived to tell...
Go pound the golden rock of heaven...
You've served your time in hell

Chaplain Rabbi Rachmiel Tobesman

Rest is peace Sir. Thank you for your courage and sacrifice. My solemn condolences to his family.
