My worst nightmare..... Clearly, an outstanding man of great character - now leaving behind a wife and (2) grandsons. (50) years of honorable work... Just brings tears to my eyes, that someone is capable of taking advantage of someone so special. Rest in Peace, Deputy Blair. You have proven yourself an honorable and giving person. The world has been a much better place because of your service. You, and your family, will be in our thoughts and prayers for many years to come!

"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."

50 years of serving his community, 50 years of worry about not coming home alive, 50 years of missing important dates so that the community would be safe, 50 years of protecting all that is dear. I salute you Sir. Hopefully the coward that did this will soon be brought to justice.
