Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Justin Richard DeRosier

My heart breaks for the family both blood and blue. We are less safe without you here. RIP.

"The Final Inspection"
The policeman stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"
The policeman squared his shoulders and said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.
But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't.....I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."

It will be a sad Easter for the family of Cowlitz County Sheriff's Deputy Justin DeRosier as he lost his life due to gunshot wounds he suffered at the hands of a perpetrator who remains at large in the State of Washington. It will be a sad Easter as well for the Cowlitz County Sheriff's Department and all of Cowlitz County, WA as they mourn the loss of a brave deputy who served his county with dignity and pride. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and with the Cowlitz County Sheriff's Department right now.

Deputy Derosier responded vigilantly to a call for service. As law enforcement we never know what befalls is as we arrive at a location. May God bless his family with strength to be able to recalibrate in the future. May his Department and fellow colleagues stay vigilant in the Call of Duty! Peace and Love!
