"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've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.
But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just 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 placeAmong the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.
If you've 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 a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."

God bless you Brother.

I pray that God will continue to bless your wife, your son, your daughter, and your fellow officers.

Rest peacefully.

Just got back to my hotel after participating in the Sea of Blue. What an incredible turnout. There were blue/red/amber lights as far as the eye could see and the streets downtown were lined with people.

It was great wasn't it? We were towards the front and as we were pulling back up to the Pyramid there were still squad cars pulling out of the staging lot.

Yep. As I made the right out of the Pyrmid, the first cars were just making their way back north in front of the pyramid.

This was a random fellow on one of the interstate overpasses. He stood and saluted as all the cars we were with passed by. This was on the way to the sea of blue.

There were two Chicago PD officers at the last one I went to. The funeral was only 300 or so miles from Chicago, but it was still a surprise to many to see them there. They were pretty popular.

By the way THAT is our dress uniform. I wish we had something like Chicago's jackets. They look spiffy.
