    "He Answered The Call"




    Today in the sun, I bid him farewell
    A man, a hero, I never knew well

    Like many before him, who answered the call
    Wearing a badge, he was destined to fall

    Though by choice a long life and a happy old age
    Would he have chosen, had he written the page

    But the office he chose never promised long life
    Just half of his salary, for his child and his wife

    He went without fear, into the darkness of night
    Bringing comfort to some, to some others light

    Easing their pain and calming their fears
    He did his duty, never asking for cheers

    A husband, a cop, he answered the call
    We bid him farewell for he gave his all

    This sounds like an intentional ambush. Light a fire, shoot a cop! Unless my memory is at fault, wasn't there an almost identical incident back east at the time of Sandy Hook?

    RIP Officer Libke. Bless his family.

    I would think so but the shooter was a 88 year old man. Really makes you wonder though of the why.

    ABOUT THE OREGON FALLEN BADGE FOUNDATION

    There is a website that you can donate to the family.
    My thoughts are, will his wife and kids get any benefits since he was a volunteer as a reservist and not actually employed by Oregon City ?

    The Oregon Fallen Badge Foundation (OFBF) was founded in the spring of 2011 by several Oregon law-enforcement honor-guard commanders and coordinators. It provides support for the planning and execution of law-enforcement memorial services throughout the state in order to ensure fallen officers are given the full honors to which they are entitled.

    Funded entirely by private and public donations, the Oregon Fallen Badge Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. As such, all donations made to the foundation are tax-deductible. Anyone wishing to donate to help support and offset the costs of the memorial service may do so at this time on the Oregon Fallen Badge Foundation website at:

    Support Us!.

    Additional information about the Oregon Fallen Badge Foundation is available on their site: Oregon Fallen Badge Foundation

    I don't know why but i feel like it's worse that he was a reserve. I've looked closely into becoming one and what you have to go through and what you get, on top of still doing your own job, seems even more of a waste somehow.
