I know I am a nobody but someone has to do it,” Beck wrote. “I am calling for a national day of prayer on Friday at noon eastern (11 a.m. central). I would like to ask that where ever you are you gather with like minded people and you pray for our nation and all those who protect and serve.”"It is open season on our police. Houston, Chicago, Abilene in a week, plus Arby's turns down food in a drive through claiming, "'We don't serve your kind here. A cop.'" stated Beck.Texas Governor Greg Abbott also issued a statement Wednesday requesting that officers across the state turn on their red and blue lights for one minute at 11 a.m. this Friday, the same time slain deputy Darren Goforth’s funeral is scheduled to begin.In the statement, Abbott also issued a statewide call for citizens to stand with law enforcement.“Respect and pride in our law enforcement must be restored in this state and nation,” he said. “It is time to unite in solidarity to support the men and women who serve and protect our communities.”“I ask that communities across Texas support this cause for unity and remember the essential role that law enforcement plays in keeping Texas safe and strong,” Abbott added.The governor said that patrol cars will also line the north drive of the Capitol Friday to be part of the display in flashing lights.Goforth was ambushed and fatally shot multiple times over the weekend while pumping gas into his cruiser. He left behind a wife and two children.In Abilene, Abilene Police Officer Don Allen, 27, was found deceased inside a home on Yucca Drive in Clyde around 7 p.m. on Monday. It was immediately clear the situation surrounding the death was 'suspicious' and multiple agencies including the Texas Rangers and the FBI joined the investigation, trying to exhaust the multiple leads that were pouring in. A direct quote from a court document related to this case confirms those suspicions, claiming "this homicide does not appear to be a random act. Based on the information provided by eye witnesses and provided by [the investigating detective's] investigation, [the investigating detective] believes this was a premeditated act."Sweetwater, TXTatiana TorresDay of Prayer tomorrow at Sweetwater Police DepartmentSweetwater sentenced in indecency case2015-09-03T20:14:30+00:002015-09-03T20:14:30+00:00Copyright 2010 Sweetwater ReporterSweetwater, TXBelinda SerranoLozano sentenced in indecency caseSweetwater 2010 Sweetwater ReporterThe pep rally will take place at 3 p.m. at the Sweetwater High School Gym and the parade will begin at 4:30.
