Reflections for Chief of Police Justin Clark McIntire

Lord God of unfailing love, to those families in our beloved nation who are suffering in the wake of the loss of a law enforcement family member, help us to provide support. Allow us to be their rock and fortress in a time of immense pain and uncertainty. Help us to keep them safe and nourished in their time of grief, suffering beside them as we move toward healing and reconciliation. Lord God, in Your compassionate mercy, hear my prayer. In Christ Jesus, Your beloved Son, I pray. Amen.

I was born at the hospital up in Natrona Heights and my family and I lived just a few minutes away from it in Brackenridge. I was born in 2001 and lived in that little town for about 6 or 7 years until we moved. I'm 21 now and you were with the Brackenridge police for 22 years. Chief, you were protecting the streets while I was just a little boy playing on Ohio street with my friends and family. I never knew your name until you were killed in the line of duty in January of this year. I hope that wherever you are now, you know that that little boy now a grown man is thankful for that humble service you provided to his community and family. You will live on forever in some small way in him and all those you protected in that little place called Brackenridge. In that way, you will never truly die. Rest in peace, hero.

Butler County PA.

„Proszę przyjmijcie wyrazy najszczerszego 
współczucia i żalu.
Wiem że nikt i nic nie wypełni już tej luki 
w Waszych sercach,
lecz pamiętajcie że nie umiera ten 
kto trwa w pamięci bliskich. 
Przeznaczenie odebrało Cię 
zbyt szybko rodzinie i przyjaciołom,
ale nigdy nie odbierze Cię 
naszej pamięci i naszym sercom.”

The day I celebrated my 31st birthday, you were gunned down by a coward with seemingly nothing to lose. But lose we all did, we lost you!
It fills my heart with sorrow, as does any similar death! You, Chief of Police Justin McIntire laid down your life for the safety, aid and protection of your fellow man.

As sad and distressing as it is, your sacrifice was not in vain! You live on in our hearts, and with every step we take you will inspire in us the values for which you gave your life:

Honor, Respect, Integity, Service, Accountability, Professionalism, Excellence, Dedication, Courtesy, Dignity, Empathy, Courage.

"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."

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.
