On this actual anniversary of your heroic and untimely death, I reiterate my previous reflection regarding you, Officer Masone and the numerous other LEO’s who sacrificed at the hands of these cowardly thugs. Rest in peace always knowing that your service and sacrifice will never, ever be forgotten by your law enforcement brethren.

As times goes on, you will never be missed. You are always in my thoughts and prayers. Your a good guy and a great friend.

I'm always amazed at when the topic of a biased and broken justice system comes up but it is never talked about from the view that the victims and their families are the ones who suffer from that broken system. If the argument is to be made that the justice system is broken, this is a clear cut example of that brokenness. Seven Correctional Officers dead, not only no charges for the suspect, one of several who were responsible, but a pardon and release from prison which leads to two police officers being shot and killed by the same suspect. Two trials resulting in a hung jury followed by a third trial which lead to an acquittal for the murder of two New York Police Officers, which leads to yet another murder in 1984. A conviction and sentence of 107 years in prison for that murder then leads to a parole in 2009, and somehow our justice system is broken but only because it is biased and unfair to the criminals.

To you sir and the several other brave men who sacrificed and left their families far too soon and far too young, we say THANK YOU, and know that you will never, ever be forgotten. Your assailants will surely face a higher court and form of justice at a later time in a different place. Rest in peace always!!!

These are the things that we do to protect the public. It seems that these days our efforts are not appreciated now more than ever before.
I believe that the government has given the public the excuse to disobey the law and to question every move that officers make. No officer comes on the job to abuse the very people that we swear to protect and serve. There have been bad apples in the past and there will be in the future, but most officers do the job and do it well. Give us the benefit of the doubt, we are here trying to do the right thing. It really hard to keep that in mind when everyone is condemning us and disrespecting our authority. God help us all and God bless America. To all of my fellow fallen brothers-RIP God is with us.
