In Chicago, Seipp St. only runs a few blocks and is rather obscure. Consider it 85th Place. in Dist. 008.

With tremendous sadness, I stood outside on the corner near my home and watched with a heavy heart as the procession of cars drove up Western Ave. As each officer stood at attention and the cars sped by, I began to cry.

I mourn your loss and will keep the officer, his family, friends, and co-workers in my prayers.

I as a citizen of chicago appreciate the hard work and sacrifices that the CPD make everyday.

Stay safe everyone and Godspeed!

RIP Brother
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”

“The Final Inspection”

The policeman stood and faced his God, which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining, just as brightly as his brass.

“Step forward now, policeman. How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek? To my church have you been true?”

The policeman squared his shoulders and said, “No, Lord, I guess I ain’t,
because those of us who carry badges can’t always be a saint.

I’ve had to work most Sundays, and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I have been violent, because the streets are tough.

But I never took a penny, that wasn’t mine to keep…
Though I worked a lot of overtime when the bills just got too steep.

And I never passed a cry for help, though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me, I’ve wept unmanly tears.

I know I don’t deserve a place among the people here.
They never wanted me around except to calm their fears.

If you have a place for me here, Lord, it needn’t be so grand.
I never expected or had too much, but if you don’t…I’ll understand.

There was silence all around the throne where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly, for the judgment of his God.

“Step forward now, policeman, you’ve borne your burdens well.
Come walk the beat of Heaven’s streets, you’ve done your time in hell.”

Heavenly Father... We pray that in your infinite Love and Mercy that you caught up our brother into your Eternal Embrace. We pray that at the moment of truth, though he was by himself, he was not alone, that you were indeed with him...

Amen.

Surely we have lost control of the streets for the sake of pure politics, meanness and spite. We know the principals won't lose any sleep because it's "just another cop."

This city rots to the Heavens. The principals have no interest in setting a real course of correction because they've managed to outsmart themselves in teaching us a "lesson." They own this atrocity in it's entirety.

They have blood on their hands.

Too many people and way too many Police Officers getting their eyes closed at the hands of subhumans who feel safe enough to walk the world of civilized men and commit these acts with impunity because the guardians have been decimated and driven into self preservation.

Some way... Some how... This must stop.

Protect yourselves. Protect your partners families and friends at all costs. Go home to your families in one piece. That's all that matters now.

Everything else can fend for itself.

We need training and different scenarios for how to handle off duty incidents! This is imperative!!! Too many of us are losing this battle because we don't know how to react. The department has never trained us for off duty incidents!! This should be effective immediately! I often think when I am standing in line at the bank what if some moron walks in here with a gun--how will I take action? What about when I have my kids with me? How will I take action? Female officers often have their gun in their purse--what do they do when moron shows you a gun and demands your purse? The department keeps spending big money on all these classes they need to invest in training us for off duty incidents before we lose another brother or sister.
God Bless You Officer. Your work is done but we will continue to fight the battle in your name.

It just makes me think about loss. We see it everyday and we try to deal with it the best way that we can, hoping that time will heal some of the pain. But I must say, that time after time after time after time again, the void becomes deeper and harder to look into and feel. There are no words, only saddened emotions that run deeper than life. Once again, the sadness has found an even deeper place in our souls. The only thing left is the thought that he is with God, in a better and more peaceful place than we could ever imagine. This is greater than me, than I could ever understand, in the hands of a God that I believe in, but don't know the answers or the reasons for the things that happen. I guess thats called Faith. Peace be with You...and your family, both Blood and Blue.
