I fight not for glory or fame,
For they are momentary.
I fight for those who can't.
I fight for Justice.
I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden.
And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets,
For I serve to protect the innocent.
It matters not where or when,
For evil knows no boundaries.
Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny,
I will not flee.
Justice is my weapon.
Faith is my shield.
Hope is my armor.
Cry not at my passing,
For it was my Honor to fight for you.
Shed not tears of sorrow,
But tears of joy,
I stand with God.
An NYPD sergeant was fatally shot in the head and another officer badly wounded in a Wild West-style shootout with an ex-con in The Bronx on Friday, law-enforcement sources said.
Sgt. Paul Tuozzolo a 41-year-old married father of two, died without firing a bullet after he and several other officers chased down Manuel Rosales at about 2:45 p.m.
Rosales, who had a history of 17 arrests and served about two years behind bars in Suffolk County for possession of stolen property, was killed when other cops returned fire.
One of the officers who fired back is a cadet still in the Police Academy who had been on field training for just three days, police-union officials said.
The officers were responding to a report of an armed home invasion by Rosales at the residence of his estranged wife.
Sources said the shooting took place after cops were given a description of Rosales’ red Jeep and spotted it near 1460 Beach Ave. in a residential neighborhood in the Van Nest section.
They drove after Rosales for several blocks to 1575 Noble Ave., next to the Noble Playground, where they boxed in his Jeep.
