Reflections for Detective Miosotis P. Familia

For Officer Miosotis Familia:

The law-officer on-the-beat or on-patrol is the primary protector of the public at-large. For one to take the life of a law-officer, pointedly based on hate and resentment - especially execution-style - has consummated the act of a wretched coward. Whatever such thoughts that have made this person an accomplished cop-killer has surely rendered him fit for occupying a place-of-their-own in the pit's of hell - forever.
We regret that Miosotis would meet such a fate, and pray for her family, friends, co-workers and all who care about her.
We proudly render Offficer Misosotis Familia, a solder-of-the-law, a final salute.

Though, I'm sure you served with pride, honor, and duty, now it your time to rest. May God bless your family, friends, and coworkers and hopefully they, in time will find peace amidst this tragedy. Thank you for your service.

At a moment like this, silence seems to be the only expression that fits. What can we, as mere men, say to a grieving and shattered heart? We speak today because we have a living hope. Death is no respecter of persons. Death is no respecter of youth. Death is a painful intruder and a pernicious reminder of our human condition. But I stand before you today to declare that we have a living hope and that causes us to rejoice greatly. You see, our hope today is found in the fact that Jesus is no longer entombed. He lives. And because He lives, Officer Familia lives. Because He lives, the grieving broken heart has hope, and reason to rejoice. Rest in peace sister. Now walk the beat in Paradise.

I have altered the following quote from Raymond Chandler to be fitting:

Down these mean streets a woman must go who is not herself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid. She is the hero; she is everything. She must be a complete woman and a common woman and yet an unusual woman. She must be, to use a rather weathered phrase, a woman of honor—by instinct, by inevitability, without thought of it, and certainly without saying it. She must be the best woman in his world and a good enough woman for any world.

I see this all too often. Being on duty for 4 officer down calls in the last year here at Detroit PD has been horrible. And I couldn't make it through the first two minutes of the recording of this radio call. My heart goes out to NYPD and the family. Rest easy, we got it from here.

Officer Familia thank you for your service. Perhaps now politicians will stop chastising law enforcement officers as a PR move! May God comfort your family and co-workers. Rest in Peace with the Lord!

Although many miles away, your loss is felt throughout the law enforcement community.

A hero taken far too soon, in a senseless way.

God bless your family, grant you eternal peace, and watch over those left to keep the watch.

There are no words to reflect such grievance. To say good-bye to a faithful wearer of the Badge of Honor.
As we hang our heads low, whispering the Honorary Departure, we have in our hearts, the anger towards the cowardly act placed upon you.
We can only pray for the protection of your Family and your place to Heaven.
God Bless you.
We will now take responsibility of your Family on Earth as you watch from Heaven.
You have done your job and it is End of Watch...
Rest now Miosotis Familia...God Bless and say a Big "Howdy" to all of the rest of the Protectors that wore the Badge of Honor!
