Officer Courts comes from great stock, his dad Larry was a fantastic DPD Supervisor, awesome man, and an excellent example to all. So his son Officer Courts did what he knew was in his blood police work. The citizens now need to stand up for law enforcement everywhere we risk it all for our communities. RIP my dear brother.

Lord Jesus, as we watch our nation’s brave law enforcement officers succumb to the wicked and evil in this world, it becomes difficult for us to pick up and move forward. Our communities are on the brink of exploding with tension. In light of the law enforcement officers who are no longer with us, I pray for endurance for our communities and law enforcement agencies. Carry us through this time of strife, that through our struggles, our bonds may grow even more unbreakable. In Your mighty and holy name, I pray. Amen.

“And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” [Isaiah 6:8 ESV]

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” [Psalm 23:4 ESV]

”Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his (her) life for his (her) friends.” [John 15:13 ESV]

A police officer should be remembered not by how he died but how he lived! A great man has gone to secure a safe path for the rest of us to follow. Thank you to you, your family, and the Detroit Police Department. Our country is a little less safe without you. Rest in Peace Brother!

"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."

Police Officers are the fabric that keep a society together. Without the police our streets would become jungles, leading to anarchy. May this officer rest in peace knowing he did his duty honorably and bravely.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God. Matthew 5:9. Your participation while attempting to arbitrate a conflict between individuals qualified you as a peacemaker. May you rest in peace and may God bless your family always and keep them safe.
