The news came on and the anchor
we just received, news that a police officer is dead.
he was answering a call, on the bad side of town.
when a guy high on drugs ,shot him down.
Officer down, was the last thing
by the time help reached him, he was already dead.
but he died doing what he loved to do
protecting people like me and you
he was shot down in the prime of
Leaving behind 3 young kids and a wife.
he had joined the police force, six months ago today.
now a drug addict with a gun, has taken all that away.
