Officer Breidenbach,
On today, the 1st anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you to you and your fellow Officer who who was also killed during this traffic stop for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of the state of Wisconsin. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. I know it’s very little consolation but at least you took that POS oxygen thief out too so some liberal judge and defense attorney won’t be catering to him.

Lord God of unfailing love, to those families in our beloved nation, the United States of America, 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, and by His authority, I pray. Amen.

In class, we are doing an assignment for my GAVC Criminal Justice class on falling police officers. We had to research different officers who ended up getting killed in the line of duty. We had to make a presentation and explain what happened to the officer. I really do appreciate what Emily has done for every single one of us. It is really upsetting what has happened to her and Officer Scheel for just doing their job.

Emily, I was shocked to hear of your passing. I cherish the time we worked together in retail before we both moved on to a career in law enforcement. I pray God blesses your family and may you rest with the other honorable heroes that are memorialized here.

We will is our duty.

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.
