This was a tragedy that should not leave the public eye.

Your Lakewood Officers Murdered
This morning a complete coward and threat upon all of society took the lives of four of my Guild members and your sworn protectors in a cold blooded assassination. As I write this I am numb. We were dealt a nasty blow, good men and women I have had the honor of knowing for years are senselessly gone. There is no way to comprehend it, to validate it, or to make sense of any of it. You cannot understand evil like this, as a community we must form a solid bond against criminals and hold them accountable. I know my members and can say with certainty that as a group we will remain professional and will continue to work to protect those of you we have taken an oath to protect.
If you know a cop tell them how much you appreciate them, it truly keeps us going. Our job can be a routine at times and simply terrifying without a moments warning at others. As we seek to hold this cop killer accountable we must also hold our elected officials accountable to keep violent predators off of our streets. They do not only prey on officers, they prey on our community daily and are responsible for the vast majority of crime in our neighborhoods.
Please pray for these officers and their families. All of them had significant others and children who are left behind along with countless family members. As a Guild we will do anything we can. If you wish to donate to the families our Guild has an account for this purpose. Every penny will go to the families; if you want to donate to a specific officer you can write his or her name in the memo section. If the check is made out to LPIG at PO Box 99579 Lakewood, WA 98499, I will personally make sure it goes where it is intended.
By tomorrow we should also have a donation option at Bank of America. May God bless you four who are in a place so much better than this; you are some of the finest professionals I have ever known. God bless our community today.
