I had the pleasure of meeting Rob when visiting Terre Haute many years ago. What a gentle soul, a big man with a bigger heart. Such a tragic waste of everything that is decent in humanity. So desperately sorry for everyone who lived and worked with him. Rest in Peace my friend, and let us all try to remember the good and great things he did whilst with us.

Teachers and Police Officers. No one ever achieved anything without them.

"Somebody killed a policeman today,
And a part of America died.
A piece of our country he swore to protect
Will be buried with him at his side.
The suspect who shot him will stand up in court,
With counsel demanding his rights,
While a young widowed mother must work for her kids
And spend alone many long nights.
The beat that he walked was a battlefield, too,
Just as if he'd gone off to war.
Though the flag of our nation won't fly at half mast,
To his name they will add a gold star.
Yes, somebody killed a policeman today,
It happened in your town or mine.
While we slept in comfort behind our locked doors,
A cop put his life on the line.
Now, his ghost walks a beat on a dark city street,
And he stands at each new rookie's side.
He answered the call and gave us his all,
And a part of America died."

It will sure be a very sad Mothers Day for Officer Robert Pitts as he lost his life with a suspect who was wanted for murder. My thoughts and prayers are with the family, the City of Terre Haute, IN, the Terre Haute, IN Police Department and the entire state of Indiana. I am sure this suspect is hiding out somewhere in another state channeling R.D. Taylor who had a hit with the song "Indiana Wants Me" and he knows he will be or already is caught by law enforcement.
