Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done;
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.

Officer Baxter, I am so, so sorry and sad that your precious life ended due to criminal actions. You were, and remain a hero in the memories held by your family, friends, co-workers, and decent people everywhere. You would be glad to know that the perp who did this to you was given the death penalty. He deserves nothing less than that.

I think of that night every single day. I hated being on that scene. I wish I could have done more for you. I will remember though that you were so dedicated and driven. Always had a smile and were always ready to help. God Speed Matt, you represented the best of us.

This is another example of heroes lost and families devastated. Support our officers. Support their families.

Support the fast track death penalty of thugs who murder police officers: trial in 30 days, execution within 24 hrs after conviction.

Abolish leathal injection and go back to the electric chair.
