Last week Time Magazine posed a question; what is it like to be an officer in America?

And Friday evening that question may have been answered when Harris County Deputy Darren Goforth was ambushed and gunned down at a gas station in Northwest Houston while he was just pumping gas into his patrol car.

Now, just two days later, that Chevron gas station is a growing memorial for Goforth.

People from near and far have stopped by to pay their respects to the fallen officer. Community members from the Copperfield Cypress area don’t plan on letting the support decline.
Donations are being collected on-site and a GoFundMe account was set up to raise money for the family.

Shannon J. Miles is charged with capital murder for the killing and the investigators will seek to find out whether Goforth was specifically targeted because he was a cop.

It’s a good time to remember that the men and women who risk their lives to protect us, need our protection too.
