Thank you to all of the brave men and women that assisted in the capture of Darbrett Black today. We hear and see things like this in the news and social media everyday, but it's not everyday that these tragedies happen to people we know and love. I for one realized tonight how much I take for granted. Thank you to all the law enforcement agencies, first responders and their families that selected a career of protecting us. Thank you for willing to put yourself out there in every way each time you walk out of your home; away from your family to go to work. Thank you to the families that deal with this stress, fear and uncertainty every time your loved one leaves for work.
Today a good man went to work to do his job of keeping us safe and he lost his life. Trooper Allen is a son, a brother, a husband, a father, a uncle, a family member, and a friend. He paid a debt he did not owe today and lives are forever changed because he chose to serve and protect. Thank you Trooper Allen for your bravery and to your family, we are here and we love you. #atruehero#thankyoutrooperallen#backtheblue#prayfortheallens#youwillbemissed
