If you have no capacity for violence then you are a healthy productive citizen, a sheep. If you have a capacity for violence and no empathy for your fellow citizens, then you have defined an aggressive sociopath, a wolf. But what if you have a capacity for violence, and a deep love for your fellow citizens? What do you have then? A sheepdog, a warrior, someone who is walking the hero's path. Someone who can walk into the heart of darkness, into the universal human phobia, and walk out unscathed.

And I shall hear, tho' soft you tread above me
And all my dreams will warm and sweeter be
If you'll not fail to tell me that you love me
I'll simply sleep in peace until you come to me.

-Danny Boy

Sleep in peace, Detective.

The tears are falling fast for what she was, and will continue to be. Hold her memories close, and her children closer.

I am so sorry.

I think sometimes we tend to forget that the military are not the only ones who guard our freedoms.

I just did not want her passing to go unnoticed.

Thank you :)

No, the military is not, and we also tend to forget that while the military trains 24/7 to be prepared to fight, law enforcement and other services put it on the line all the time and sacrifice that we might be safe.

They deserve our thanks and love.

What a loss to the community and to her own family.
She sounds like the kind of person you'd want to know. Have lunch with. Respect.
An everyday, unsung hero.

"An everyday, unsung hero."

You have just described , Carrie, what it means to be part of the "thin blue line" between society and insanity.

Absent from the Body and present with the Lord.When reading this story that scripture from the Bible came to mind in describing this woman.
