    Officer Richards, you have my respect and the gratitude of our entire community. God bless you, your family, and your fellow officers.

  3. Bless you, officer Richards, and your fellow men and women in blue. It’s because of your bravery and courage in action that an identifying mark was left on a terrible man who needed to be stopped (at the least) and brought down (at the best).

    No doubt that Richards’ shot provided valuable evidence. It’s bittersweet that one of the victims got a piece of the murderer…

    Tonight four blue lights are burning in my front window in memory of our fallen police officers. It you want to show your support to the families and the LPD, and send a message of solidarity against criminals and thugs, put a light in your window too.
