Hey Danny :)

Hard to believe it's been almost a month since God called you home. All of us at ECJ are heartbroken and devastated. We miss your amazingly positive attitude, your never ending smile, and the light that shown brightly every time you entered the muster room.

Your services were so beautiful. Your family is so amazing and strong...their letters to you so full of love and cherished memories. Their love for you runs strong and deep. You would be so proud!

I'm gonna miss ya, Danny. I will carry you with me for the rest of my life. Thank you for everything you brought to us at ECJ, thank you for being my friend.

Rest easy, my brother, we'll take it from here.

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.

Agent Salazar, you and your colleagues have one of the toughest and most frustrating jobs in the country, and yet, in spite of the lack of true leadership at the very top, you get out there and give your all, for nothing in most cases, but God Bless you all for trying.

This is tragic and so unnecessary, but you were doing your job. You will be missed by everyone who knew and loved you most, and by the nation as a whole.

God Bless you, Brother and may you forever Rest in Peace.

In Honor of your Sacrifice and for your family and friends, I salute you as a HERO!

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whose blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.
