Officer Colson, on this 90th anniversary of your senseless murder, I wish to thank you for your service. You probably would have been well within your rights to have shot the man who took your life, but you attempted to disarm him without anyone getting hurt. It shows true good character. I can only hope your murderer faced true justice, if not in this world, then in the next. He's become a footnote in history, you have become revered in history.

God Bless and may you forever Rest in Peace, Brother.

Officer Colson, though you probably had ample cause to simply shoot the man with the gun, you attempted to disarm him. It cost you your life, but it showed to the world what it means to be a hero. You made the attempt to disarm this man despite the dangers to yourself. I admire your courage and the simple show of humanity that many people refuse to see in Police Officers.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.
