Reflections for Correctional Officer Stanley E. Cole

Officer Cole,
On today, the 39th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you to you and your two fellow COs who were also killed that day for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of the state of Illinois. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. There is no tougher job in Law Enforcement than that of a Corrections Officer.

Such a sad story! My thoughts and prayers go out to Officer Cole's friends and family... I'm shocked to read that none of those 17 who killed these officers were convicted. It makes my stomach sick.

God bless our men and women in blue who serve and protect us and risk their lives everyday.

I (#531) walked the same beat as you in "Thunderdome". Your presence is still felt there today. I am lucky enough to know your brother Bill and he still carries your memory.
Rest in Peace.
