    Unhappy "Deputy Matt"- Polk County S.O.



    "Deputy Matt"
    Polk County Sheriff's Office
    Florida
    End of Watch: Thursday, September 28, 2006

    Biographical Info
    Age: 39
    Tour of Duty: 12 years
    Badge Number: Not available

    Incident Details
    Cause of Death: Gunfire
    Date of Incident: Thursday, September 28, 2006
    Weapon Used: Gun; Unknown type
    Suspect Info: Shot and killed

    "Deputy Matt" and his K9 partner, Diogi, were shot and killed while pursuing a suspect who had fled on foot during a traffic stop. Another deputy had stopped the vehicle for a traffic violation and the suspect fled on foot into an adjoining wooded area.

    "Deputy Matt" and Diogi arrived moments later and began searching for the suspect with the other deputy. The suspect opened fire on the deputies as they tracked him, fatally wounding "Deputy Matt" and Diogi, and wounding the other deputy in the leg.

    Later in the day the suspect emerged from the woods and fired at a Lakeland Police Department officer who was alerting residents to stay away from the area. The officer returned fire as the suspect fled back into the woods.

    The suspect was located by SWAT team members the following day hiding underneath a fallen tree that had been covered by underbrush. The man was shot and killed by the officers when he failed to obey their commands and displayed a firearm.

    "Deputy Matt" had served with the agency for 12 years and was assigned to the Northwest District K-9 Unit. He is survived by his wife and three children.

    Rest in peace, brother. Glad they got some justice on that one.
    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.

    and
    Godspeed
    You are a sniper when all other methods to save a life are failing...
    You are a counter-sniper when someone else thinks they are as good as you with a rifle.

    RIP Matt we have your watch now .
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

    Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.

    We have lost another brave man, a loyal dog, and a piece of shit.

    thoughts are with those who knew and loved him...
    http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion
