Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Carlos Cammon

Yo, Brah:

I was thinking about You, Tonight.......

"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."

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.

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Carlos died after becoming ill on duty six years ago.

To the Cammon family, fellow officers, and all who call Carlos beloved, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support. I hope that that you receive that same kind of support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Deputy Cammon gave to his community and the citizens of California and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on August 23, 2019.

“The souls of the just are in the hands of God, and no torment will ever touch them...their passing away was thought to be an affliction, and their going forth from us to be utter destruction...
but they are at peace...
Like gold in the furnace God tried them,
and found them worthy of himself.
In the time of their judgment, they will shine and will dart about like sparks through stubble.” Wisdom 3
Thank you for your service, Deputy Sheriff Carlos Cammon. Prayers for the peace and consolation for your mom and family.

Sheriff Cammon, for six years, you suffered in silence, with your loved ones surely hoping you would regain consciousness. But it was not meant to be. Our Lord must have wanted to spend that time with you, having conversations with you and loving you. Now it's over. No more pain, no more tears, only peace and joy in the loving arms of our Lord. Rest in peace, good and faithful servant.

End of Watch Friday, August 23, 2019.


Rest in Peace brother and watch over us. We will protect and serve from here on in your honor.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.
