Funeral Honors

 

I attended the funeral services for Belleville PO Kenneth Santucci along with Officers from all corners of the state and from as far away as Baltimore MD.  Although I never knew PO Santucci, I consider it my duty to pay my respects to my Brother Officer.  Truly amazing was the number of participants, 150+ Motorcycle Officers, at least a dozen Honor Guards, 100+ State Troopers, just about every Chief from Essex County.
Rest in Peace Brother.

Tragic Death in the Line of Duty

Belleville Police Officer Line of Duty Death

A tragedy for the Belleville Police Department as one Officer was Killed in an accident and another is seriously injured.  The accident occurred when another vehicle ran a stop sign, striking the cruiser.  My thoughts and prayers go out to Officer Santucci and his family friends and fellow officers.  Also to his partner for a fast recovery.

More on the Police shooting

Finally a media outlet that gives fact….not their opinions and feelings.  It should not be hard to understand that until all the facts of the shooting are known, one should not jump to the conclusion that the Police are at fault.  With a headline of “Dover man shot and killed by Denville Cop” and “Mother calls killing by Denville Police Officer intentional” the media is painting a dark cloud over the police.  When all the facts are known, will the media step up to the plate and set the record straight, my guess is that will not happen.

A Salute to the National Guard

The new Song of 3DD for the National Guard. I DO NOT OWN THE RIGHTS TO THIS VIDEO THE RIGHTFULL OWNERS ARE THE NATIONAL GUARD, UNIVERSAL/REPUBLIC RECORDS AND 3 DOORS DOWN THEMSELVES. German homepage: http://3doorsdown.herebyme.de/portal.php Lyrics: Beyond the boundries of your city’s lights. Stand the heroes waiting for your cries. So many times you did not bring this on yourself. When the moment finally comes, I’ll be there to help. On that day, when you need your brothers and sisters to care. I’ll be right here. Citizen soldiers. Holding the life of the ones that we guide from the dark of despair. Standing on guard for the ones that we’ve sheltered. We’ll always be ready because we will always be there. When there’re people crying in the streets When they’re starving for a meal to eat When they simply need a place to make their beds Right here underneath my wing you can rest your head On that day when you need your brothers and sisters to care I’ll be right here Citizen soldiers. Holding the life of the ones that we guide from the dark of despair. Standing on guard for the ones that we’ve sheltered. We’ll always be ready because we will always be there. Hope and pray that you never need me the rest assured, I will not let you down I walk beside you but you may not see me The strongest among you may not were a crown On that day when you need your brothers and sisters to care I’ll be right here On that day when you don’t have a street for the burden you bare I’ll be right here Citizen soldiers holding the life of the ones that need guide from the dark of dispair Standing on guard for the ones that need shelter We’ll always be ready because we will always be there «
