A post from a message board 12-30-2003
Trooper Nikky J Green was killed in the line of duty the day after Christmas. Today I had the honor of standing beside the road and watching his funeral procession. I heard about it on the radio and put on my best and headed to I-44 to pay my respects as it passed through Lawton. I was literally moved to tears. When I arrived the interstate was already lined with fire trucks, ambulances, tow truck, and ordinary citizens like me lined up to pay their last respects with lights flashing. I pulled in behind a fire truck and turned on my four ways. I stood beside the fireman and watched. First 30 Oklahoma Highway Patrol Cars came by very slowly. Maybe 35 miles an hour. Then there were 10 rows of 2 police motorcycles, followed by the limousine and the hearse, which was trailed by another 12 OHP motorcycles. Then came 198 Oklahoma Highway Patrol cars in honor of the troopers badge number. Then every jurisdiction in Oklahoma that had a car to spare sent one. There must have been at least 400 different police cars, including animal control and fish and game. Then came a line of federal cars, FBI, ATF, US Customs, Secret Service, and US Marshals were marked and there were several unmarked cars with US Government plates, then there were vehicles representing the US Marines, US Navy, US Army, US Air Force, and US Coast Guard. Then there were several dozen civilian vehicles carrying mourners and family, and the procession ended with another 30 OHP cars. I have a huge amount of respect, admiration, and even love for law enforcement officials. I always have and hope I always will. I'm not ashamed to say that I think all our fine officers are everyday heroes regardless of race or creed. To me a law enforcement official is the glue that holds our society together. I'll be making a extra large contribution to the police fund this year and would like to encourage everyone here to support their own states police funds. I can only hope that the support Oklahomans put out today will be of some comfort to the family in their grief. I hope our fine officers find the savage who did this and that they give him swift justice.

Fallen Friend

I got the news of a fallen friend,  one I've known since we were kids.

Growing up we played like fools,  who ever knew one day we would enforce the rules.
My first badge was pinned on by Bill,  and my future was shaped by his good will;
see he was more than a cop to me,  he was my friend and forever will be.

I will miss you and your service too,  for today this profession is sadly blue.

As you look down upon us all,  rest my friend, we'll take the call.
Our tribute to you will forever be,  to fill your shoes you leave with the OHP!
