Comments from the Harris County D.A. concerning the murder of Deputy Goforth.
You shouldn’t have to worry when you stop to fill your tank that you’ll be shanked or shot. Sadly though, Darren Goforth was ambushed and shot multiple times while pumping gas into his patrol car.
This violent and inhumane act has saddened the heart of law enforcement officers (LEO) across the nation, and it has left many in Harris County Texas stunned. Goforth is the 23rd officer that has been shot and died as a result of his injuries in the first 8 months of this year.
Please pray for any LEO you know, and all of them in your community. Also pray for Goforth’s family. He is survived by his wife and two children, ages 5 and 12.
First of all, I encourage you to make petitions, prayers, intercessions, and prayers of thanks for all people, 2 for rulers, and for everyone who has authority over us. Pray for these people so that we can have a quiet and peaceful life always lived in a godly and reverent way. 3 This is good and pleases God our Savior. ~I Timothy 2:1-3
