“down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid. He is the hero; he is everything. He must be a complete man and a common man and yet an unusual man. He must be, to use a rather weathered phrase, a man of honor—by instinct, by inevitability, without thought of it, and certainly without saying it. He must be the best man in his world and a good enough man for any world." Raymond Chandler

Rest in Peace Corporal Cole

Cpl Cole. As an aspiring youth, You always think that you can be prepared when something so close to home happens. I may not have met you personally but I do remember hearing of your kind nature and duty to the community. I hope to one day bear the uniform of an officer and do the job as you did. With courage, dedication, and kindness. RIP Cpl. Cole, May you walk the beat at heavens gate.

May God bless Corporal Cole and his friends and family at this time. May we know that he died a brave man doing what he loved to do. No man has any greater love then to lay down his own life for his fellow man.

May God watch over the family and fellow officers these heroes worked with. We can only imagine their pain. But we can sympathize with them and we must support them. This is what the Patriots and Heroes looks like folks. Running to the danger when all others run away from it. Selfless and fearless to the end. They now work heavens Beat. And are in God's hands forever. Ever watching down on us all.

The true measure of a person
is not found in the
might of their arm,
their wealth
or their power –
it is found in the strength
of their character.

There is no greater testimony to
ones character, than ones
willingness to sacrifice all,
in the noble quest of
providing protection to all
whom they serve.
