Reflections for Police Officer Matthew Scott Baxter

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.

Thank you for serving your community, in a world where police officers are viewed as villains, you will not be forgotten and we will never stop fighting for our police officers who serve so selflessly. God Bless!

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.

This is happening all to often . Lawlessness is not acceptable. As a retired Officer my heart goes out to his family and his widow. Our district attorneys and judges are way too lenient, letting serous criminals off with minimal jail time. This practice is appalling leaving our communities and first responders at risk.

I'm elated to learn that the sick individual who caused so much harm was convicted a short time ago. I've been watching on a monthly basis the development of this case on social media for the past two years. I recently watch an interview given by your wife who has continued to stand strong with your entire family. Officer Baxter YOU Sir will never ever be forgotten.
