    The article says that he received the Medal of Honor for saving a fellow officer's life eight years ago, in addition to saving future victims by getting this POS off the street.

    RIP

    Step,

    I wish I could have gotten there faster when the call went out. I wish there was something we could do to keep you with us. Many people call officers Hero's but you my friend are a true Hero, you never gave up! You would not fall until the threat was gone. You never thought about yourself only about helping others. Your legacy will never be forgotten. You saved an officer years ago from a burning vehicle. You saved many men by taking that scum bag off the streets the other night. You are a Hero, a warrior.

    We'll take it from here, brother. Take a break and we will see you soon.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.
