We fight the battles that go unseen and out of the public eye, yet the dangers we face are so large and unknown. Yet at times, there seems to be no explanation for such violence. Condolences to coworkers, family, and friends. Rest easy brother, we'll keep watch from here.

Officer Lee, every day, when you went to work, you knew that you were placing yourself in danger, being surrounded by criminals, and yet you chose that profession willingly. Your unselfish and courageous service will not go unnoticed by our good Lord, and your reward in heaven will be abundant. May He immerse you and your loved ones in His Divine Mercy. Rest in peace, good and faithful servant.

May God be with Officer Lee and his family, friends and co-workers at this time. Officer Lee was a brave man. He was a hero. He took it upon himself to work within the confines of a detention center in Arizona.. Not an easy job but rather a dangerous one. Yet he went to work every day to help support his wife and two children.
Officer Lee paid the ultimate price. He gave his life so that we, the general public, may be protected. We all owe a debt of gratitude to Officer Lee.
May he Rest In Peace and May He NEVER be forgotten.
