Remember: God created all people equal and I feel everyone has the right to live in a society free from fear and intrusion.

Working hard as a police officer to protect the rights and safety of those I serve and arresting those who violate the laws that were designed to protect all of us.

I admire anyone who has fairly succeeded in achieving excellence, in whatever it is that they do.

I am hard on the outside but soft on the inside.
