About this creation
My phone rang at 10:00 this morning. The officer on the other end asked me if I had heard the news. He then told me that one of the officers from our department had died last night. Out of respect for the privacy of the family, I will NOT be giving any further details as to what happened.





I would just like to ask a favor. The next time you're playing "Grand Theft Auto" (or any game like that that glorifies criminals and vilifies the police), take a moment to realize that although the game may be fun, in real life, Police Officers put their lives on the line EVERY DAY so that you can sleep safely at night. And, Think twice before you make comments about cops being the "bad guy".

This is not only a tirbute to "Officer H", but also to every other police officer who has given his life for the safety of others.

Thank you ~ Chris.

Addition - I would like to thank everyone for their heartfelt remarks. I would also like to clarify that I don't have anything against "games". Games are a great escape. So please (and I mean this) enjoy "GTA" (I was using it as an example). Just know that when you turn off the game, what really happens out there is completely different. Again, thank you.



ADDITION 08-12-08. Very rarely do I delete a comment but I felt the need to do so here. "Someone" made a derogitory comment on this page, a badly spelled comment I might add. Usually SPAM doesn't bother me. It shows that not only are people paying attention but I find it funny that they have nothing better to do with their time than to make themselves feel better by insulting others. These people obviously have self esteem issues. The next time "you" are going to "try" your attempt at humor, do it on something that's not a memorial to someone's memory. Or maybe you'd find it amusing for someone to desicrate the memorial of one of your loved ones... think about it.

Thank you for this. Though I am not American, my Uncle was a police officer in my own country. He was shot five times in a raid before I was born. So thank you for this heartfelt memorial to all law enforcement officers

How I passed this one up I do not know. I possess a certificate in grief counseling and if you read my up-dated bio you'd see I got to use it during the 9-11 days! I loved the fact you pointed out with this one not only can LEGO be used to express ones feelings of grief BUT can be used as a tool for healing that grief! RIGHT ON with your comment about "Grand Theft Auto"! I wish one day we could meet! My heart, mind and soul just said a prayer for your pal "Officer H"! Pax vox bis cum!

First up, I honour your level of respect for your fellow comrades, it's great to see people who actually care. I'm sure your friend was a great guy. I have only ever lost one person dear to me in my life so far, and I know from experience the pain was un-bearable. Well done for sticking up to 'Officer H' as you have, you're truly a great guy.

I also hope that this makes people think about the countless soldiers, police, and other members of our community that spend countless hours, trying to keep us safe. Also, GTA is fun, but it glorifies crime and to many kids play it and get the wrong idea

The derogatory remarks regarding anyone's late loved ones is sick, disgusting and inhuman. Anyone wishing to desecrate the honor of those risking there lives so you can besmirch what they do is a wicked, terrible individual who is no help to society. RIP all fallen Soldiers, LEO's and public servants. Great moc, wish my best to the family.

I agree with the two guys below me. Cops dont deserve to die, and anyone who thinks that killing cops is fun cute or anything is horribly messed up. In fact- I have a friend who's a cop and goes to my church (im mormon and mormon is the best religion you'll ever be apart of). Keep up the good work!!

I'm sad to hear that. What ticks me off is that some people actully LIKE to kill cops! I can't stand that kind of that stuff. I just heard about the 4 cops shot execution-style. They otta take that guy out behind the police station and do to him what he did to those cops. I'm gonna make a memorial moc for those 4 officers.

Great memorial. Always nice to see someone honor those in a more abstract way then just "My prayers are with you". That is good an all, but this gives it more of a personal touch. My condolences to Officer H's Family. Altough Firefighters and Cops are "rivals" They can care about one another. I would like all the cops to feel for me when I die, as do all the firefighters for the cops. Once again, Great Job!

  September 2, 2009
Ya, GTA doesn't really make the police look good, which is why I prefer Crackdown, because you get to be a super-cop. People die everywhere each day, and you only really realise that when someone important to you dies. Police officers protect people from crime, and without them, most of us would have been robbed twice and/or killed. So when you see police officers, tell them that they do their job well. Keep The Peace.

The Police Department is a revered hall of peacekeeping.That is why a fallen comrade is always remembered. A member of the local PD was killed in a car accident recently. He was a friend of almost everyone in town. I pay homage to him when I say, I express my grief of a fallen officer.

I see police officers the same way I view my fellow Vets. Men and Women who selflessly serve their country even if what they do is not appriciated. I lost a lot of friends in Iraq and Afghanastan, but also a close friend who was a plice officer in my home town. I look at all their sacrifice the same and thanks for posting this tribute.

wow more than correct i once saw a mural with gta playing on a gamecube after killing someone THERE IS NO RESET ON LIFE,and PULL A TRIGGER,SHATTER A LIFE truly heart wrenching knowing they made bully a t rated game that takes a role of a kid where you punch teachers!? and you can kiss anyone,manhunt 2 is nightmare fuel unleaded and both made by rockstar who came out with family friendly table tennis in all advantage escape from reality disadvantage escape from reality a kid in my class said 2/3 of his collection of games are rated ao, maybe its the misaimed advertising like halo kiddies and postal is just more disturbing,and tramuatizing you can do good or bad and most choose the other one. afols,ffols, if you have children stay away because on an adult mind they seem to forget the line between reality and fiction but on a young mind this is anarchy fuel finally:video games are a mixed blessing from where we were battling giant chimps with small pixellated men to games where you have to slaguhter the innocent if you agree send me a comment because this email is kinda bad. it can work well to stop these games from sealing in minds.

Hello Chris! Iīm sorry for the loss of your colleague/friend. I canīt even imagine... People tend to not think of death until they are personally concerned by the sudden loss of a close person, and this memorial here reminds us of what can happen so easily. Last month, a grandpa and his 5-year-old grand daughter got caught in a sliding car in the town I live in. He died, and she got severely injured. It just seems so unfair... To GTA: It just canīt be taken serious by people, but unfortunatly some people sometimes do... May I offer my sincere condolences ____Steffen

Well, what I really wanted to say was apparently too long and it won't go through. So I'll just say that this is a definite Make You Think MOC award winner in my book, but it's a tragedy that it has to exist at all. That seems so damned inadequate. I could write pages about this.
