Reflections for Patrolman Edward Dippel

Rest in peace and Olav Hashalom Patrolman Dippel. Thanks for serving New York.

What better way to show your anger at something than to steal from someone? Sadly that mentality is still in existence.

Patrolman Dippel, thank you for your service. Your efforts were meritorious and honorable but tragically deadly. You have not been forgotten and I am grateful that this wonderful website preserves your good name especially on this 155th anniversary of your sacrifice.

God Bless you, Brother and may your eternal rest be ever peaceful.

Patrolman Dipple, you gave your life trying to keep the peace and protecting property from scoundrels. I can understand why the Draft Riots occurred, but as with all riots, the meaning behind it is pushed aside by the lowest of life forms, opportunists who take advantage of a situation for their own personal gain. We can only hope that those who caused your death (and ALL filthy vermin who loot) faced true justice, if not in this world, then in the next.

You were a hero and deserve this memorial page on this anniversary of your passing.

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

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 146th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace

I said a little prayer today for Patrolman Dippel and his family. He may be gone but never forgotten. He will always be a New York HERO.

One-hundred-forty-three years have past since your slaying, and still your name and sacrifice is remembered. Thank you for your service, dedication and sacrifice. You are proof that heros really DO live forever! God rest your soul.

DAY IS DONE
GONE THE SUN,
FROM THE HILLS, FROM THE LAKE, FROM THE SKIES.
ALL IS WELL SAFELY REST,
GOD IS NIGH.

GO TO SLEEP, PEACEFUL SLEEP,
MAY THE SOLDIER, OR THE SAILOR, GOD KEEP.
ON THE LAND OR THE DEEP,
SAFE IN SLEEP.

LOVE, GOOD NIGHTM,
MUST THOU GO,
WHEN THE DAY, AND THE NIGHT NEED THEE SO?
ALL IS WELL, SPEEDETH ALL
TO THEIR REST.

FADES THE LIGHT;
AND AFAR
GOETH DAY, AND THE STARS SHINETH BRIGHT,
FARE THEE WELL; DAY IS GONE,
NIGHT IS ON.

THANKS AND PRAISE,
FOR OUR DAYS,
'NEATH THE SUN, 'NEATH THE STARS, 'NEATH THE SKY.
AS WE GO THIS WE KNOW,
GOD IS NIGH.

It is said that EVIL flourishes when good men do nothing.

To the family of this brave officer who gave all so that others might live, I extend my deepest sympathy and gratitude for your continued sacrifice.

To those of us who were left behind who still wear the badge, the mission continues... tomorrow is another Tour Of Duty... May God comfort you with the knowledge that you DO make a differance.
