Reflections for Detective First Grade Jonathan Diller

We know from the Holy Scriptures that Peace Officers have a sacred task to enforce the laws of the land to protect the innocent and punish the guilty:

"For the policeman [Peace Officer] does not frighten people who are doing right; but those doing evil will always fear him [her]. So, if you don't want to be afraid, keep the laws and you will get along well. The policeman [Peace Officer] is sent by God to help you. But if you are doing something wrong, of course you should be afraid, for he [she] will have you punished. He [She] is sent by God for that very purpose. Obey the laws, then, for two reasons: first, to keep from being punished, and second, just because you know you should." [Romans 13: 3-5 TLB]

Your murderer should have never been freed from incarceration. An EXTENSIVE criminal record just means a few extra days in jail these days. You are mourned and your sacrifice is felt throughout the nation, especially by those in 'the family'.

God Bless you, Brother, may you forever Rest in Peace and thank you for your service, it was far too short.
