    Stacked up on your door
    The policeman stood and faced his God,
    which must always come to pass.
    He hoped his shoes were shining,
    just as brightly as his brass.

    "Step forward now, Officer.
    How shall I deal with you?
    Have you always turned the other cheek?
    To My church have you been true?"

    The Officer squared his shoulders
    and said, "No Lord. I guess I ain't.
    Because those who carry badges,
    can't always be a saint."

    "I've had to work most Sundays,
    and at times my talk was rough...
    and sometimes I've been violent
    because the streets are awful tough."

    "But I never took a penny,
    that wasn't mine to keep...
    though I worked a lot of overtime
    when the bills got just too steep."

    "And I never passed a cry for help,
    though at times I shook with fear.
    And sometimes, God forgive me,
    I wept unmanly tears."

    "I know I don't deserve a place
    among the people here.
    They never wanted me around
    except to calm their fear."

    "If you've a place for me here, Lord,
    it needn't be so grand.
    I never expected or had too much,
    But, if you don't...I'll understand."

    There was silence all around the throne,
    where saints had often trod,
    as the Officer waited quietly
    for the judgement of his God.

    "Step forward now, Officer
    You've borne your burdens well.
    Come walk a beat on heaven's streets.
    You've done your time in hell."

    Wow about the reported motive. I thought guns were plentiful in PR. RIP Rangers.

    Yea, they are. Something is not right. Why would the bad guys risk a confrontation with a couple of cops...... guns are readily available on the street.

    R.I.P. Officers.

    There is gang violence in places there, just like in parts of the rest of the US.

    May the officers rest in peace, and their families be well taken care of. :fallenofficer: :fallenofficer:

    I am under the impression that Puerto Rico is a pretty rough place.

    RIP brothers.

    It just keeps getting better, don't it?
    There has to be more to the story... shooting cops for guns?

    Guns are strictly regulated...

    PR is a VERY rough place, I don't know how officers suit up every day, knowing there is a target on their back.
