Officer Mazurkiewicz, your brutal ambush murder is so hard to even imagine in our country and yet here we are. I am so very sorry for you and your family. I can see in your photo that you were a highly decorated Police Officer and how proud you were to wear your uniform. We are all losing good men and women to this evil element in our society and we must acknowledge this, loudly!
May God Bless you and all those that love and care about you. Rest in Peace, Brother.

As an upstate New Yorker that has since moved to the Carolinas this hits hard. I know how genuine, tough and hardy my fellow New Yorkers are. A proud group of people who withstand so much up there in the frozen north. Rest easy my brother, you have earned it. My condolences to your family. We thank you for having given the world such a man.

Rest in Peace brother and watch over us. We will protect and serve from here on in your honor.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

By Jon F. Hooper
