I'm always very saddened when an officer is shot and killed and especially when it is one from my local town. What a senseless and sad thing.

My prayers are with his family, his two young children, and his widow, whose family lives so far away. God, how I wish this senseless violence around this country would end.

Please add the Prayers of my family to yours. Not only for the one we have lost and those who love him, but to the ones who put the uniform on every day.

Having grown up down the block from a police precinct in Brooklyn, NY I saw a lot of officers go down in the line of duty, and off duty as well. I got to know many of them for all of the wrong reasons and still all I can say is that if you want to find a hero you need look no further than most of them. I also speak from personal experience having lost a brother in law who was an undercover detective in LA, CA who was taken from us during a stakeout. He and I may not have agreed on all things but he gave new meaning to "selfless service".

Regretfully, I dont believe the violence will never stop, all we can do is do the best we can to make sure we dont contribute to it. To all of us, remember this in the way you treat the people around you and in the way you bring up your children.

I am sorry to hear that you suffered the loss of one within your own family. And yes, I agree, they deserve our respect and admiration and support, ALL the time. I try to find ways to do that.

We also add our prayers and thoughts to Officer Morenos family at this most difficult time.

We are also eternally grateful for those that will put on the uniform and daily put their lives on the line for the safety and welfare of our way of life, both as a police officer and a military member. Without those willing to answer the higher calling, we would not enjoy the freedoms and safety we do. For everyone that hears and accepts that calling, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

bumping....

with continuing prayers...
I'm going to try to keep this on the front page until Officer Moreno is laid to rest.

God bless you, Officer Moreno - one more roll call, the one in heaven - and then I pray that you rest in eternal peace.....
I know that your brothers in blue will make sure that your family stays safe and well......

This is a constant reminder that countless lives, including the lives of police officers, are subject to danger every day in America. My prayers go out to every officer that ever served that died while on duty. We must not forget. We must always remember the loved ones each and every day!

My condolences to the family of Officer Moreno.

and again.... praying for the peace of his surviving family members.. two young children, a young wife with family out of the country.....
How do you ask an 11 year old child to stand up and face the funeral services of his father?
