It is especially hard when a young man with so much to give to the world is taken away. He is a hero to all of us who need protection from those who would do us harm. May this hero be remembered as the dedicated protector he was until the end of his watch. My heart goes out to all who love Officer Wagner

On behalf of the Ohio Attorneys General Bureau of Criminal Identification & Investigation, our thoughts and prayers are with the immediate family of Police Officer Mark Christopher Wagner, II and the extended law enforcement family of the Wintergreen Police Department, Virginia.

End of Watch Friday, June 16, 2023.

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.

Policjant jak większość z nas wychodzi z domu do swojej pracy. Idzie na służbę i nigdy nie wie, z jaką tragedią ludzką spotka się tego dnia, tej nocy. Tym bardziej nie spodziewa się, że cios noża, przestępcza kula, rozpędzony samochód odbierze mu życie, „Proszę przyjmijcie wyrazy najszczerszego
współczucia i żalu.l
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.”..Spoczywaj w spokoju Przyjacielu.

Officer Wagner,

It's always hard for me to read of the loss of another law enforcement officer in the line of duty. That's especially true, when the officer has been in law enforcement for a short time. Thank you so much for your service to your community and your dedication to protecting perfect strangers. Rest in peace. I will pray for your family, friends, loved ones and colleagues.

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God. – Matthew 5:9

"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."
