When God sent His angels to bring you home He had His reasons. Someday we will be able to ask why; but for now we offer our prayers for peace and comfort to those left behind. RIP Brother.

Prayerfully, my No Parole letter and those of other concerned officers will have the desired impact on this action.

I am honored to have sent a "No parole" letter, so your cowardly killer remains locked up and denied the pleasure of living in a world that you made safe for all of us.

TIMMY WAS A BRAVE AND HONORABLE MAN. I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER HIM FOR THE PERSON HE WAS. A LOVING HUSBAND AND FATHER, HE WAS A TREMENDOUS PERSON; YET HE WAS A HUMBLE MAN WHO HAD A SPECIAL KINDNESS ABOUT HIM. AT THIS TIME, HIS WIDOW, AGNES HURLEY IS GRAVELY ILL AND NEEDS OUR PRAYERS. SHE SUFFERED SO MUCH IN HER LIFE AFTER THIS TRAGEDY. SHE LOVED TIMMY WITH ALL HER HEART YET WAS NOT BITTER; SHE ALWAYS HAD SO MUCH LOVE FOR US ALL. AGNES IS A COUSIN OF MINE, MY MOMS FIRST COUSIN. I REMEMBER HIS FUNERAL AND WILL ALWAYS RESPECT WHAT A POLICEMAN'S FAMILY GOES THROUGH IN THEIR DAILY LIVES.

I received the Timothy Hurley memorial award when I graduated from Blessed Sacrament School June 18, 1974. His parents gave me his mini gold shield to remember him by and I still do today and still have and cherish the shield. I hope his family sees this. My email address is [email protected] Peace and Love is the answer. 3.19.13

Rest In Peace.

An honorable MAN who believed in helping to make Queens a better place--Convinced me to transfer and move to a nice bldg on Liberty Ave--3+ wonderful happy years never to be repeated! All from a street cleaning ticket that I appealed on the street and while I lost that fight in the end I WON.
Should've had the death penalty cause in 25 yrs you're still a punk! BUT luckily still no parole!!!

As my career's end is coming closer, I decided to check and find those who had lost their lives during the year that I was hired. While it's been a long time since your passing, I'm sure those you left behind and those whom with you served with distinction have kept you alive in their memories. Thank you for your service and for looking out for us who continue in our chosen profession. Rest in peace Officer Hurley!

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

I WAS ASTOUNDED TO SEE THIS PAGE. WHAT A LOSS THIS WORLD HAS SUFFERED BY THIS BRUTAL MURDER. I WAS EQUALLY DISGUSTED TO SEE THAT THIS MURDERER CAN POSSIBLY BE RELEASED MAY OF THIS YEAR. IT SEEMS SO UNFAIR. I SHALL KEEP YOU IN MY PRAYERS AND WEAR YOUR STRENGTH ON MY BADGE. BLESS YOU FOR MAKING THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE TO KEEP US ALL SAFE. GOD BLESS YOU.
