Thanks for being there for your community and for the great state of Texas. As a former SWAT Commander, I all too well know the dangers that come when called upon to quell uncommon calls of violence. Your willingness to go the extra mile and to place your self in harm's way says a lot about who you were. May your agency and city forever embrace your outstanding service, sacrifice and devotion to duty. I pray your family and fellow SWAT members somehow gets through this tragedy and loss, and that they are blessed in the future, despite the pain and anguish that they will endure.

When will this stop. Our brave officers continue to take the brunt of these crazy monsters. Time to increase the penalties for assaulting law enforcement officers. Or better yet just put these dirtbags away for good. Let them live in a prison hole forever with all the other scum…May God bless our brave hero who gave his life for all of us. May you live in our hearts forever and May God bless your brave family.
