I believe that every law enforcement officer is a hero.  It’s a tough and under-appreciated job, dealing daily with the lowest elements of our society so that you and I don’t have to.  Every morning, these men and women pin a target on their uniforms and go out to face another day that could be their last. 

Friday was that day for Texas Game Warden, Justin Hurst. 

Capital murder charges have been filed against a Wharton County man in connection with the murder of Texas Parks and Wildlife Game Warden outside of East Bernard. Game Warden Justin Hurst, 34, of El Campo was killed early Saturday morning after a pursuit involving the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD), Wharton County Sheriff Deputies and Department of Public Safety troopers. A warrant was expected to be served to James Freeman, 26, reportedly of Lissie.

I offer a salute to Warden Hurst, to his survivors, and to all the men and women out there who put their lives on the line each day to uphold the law and keep our society whole.

Rest easy
