Georgia Police Receive Letter Thanking Them For Their Service From Inmates

A police officer in Georgia was gunned down while in the line of duty and a manhunt is underway for his killer. In an unusual move, inmates at the local jail sent a "heartfelt" letter to the sheriff supporting and thanking the officers for their service. The officer who lost his life is Gwinnett County Police Officer Antwan Toney.

Officer Toney was responding to a call on October 20 and had been with the department for three years when he was killed. Inmates at the Gwinnett County Jail wrote to Gwinnett County Sheriff Butch Conway:

<i>"Though law enforcement and criminals may be considered opposites, the intrinsic value of a human life transcends those boundaries by far. Right is right and wrong is wrong. No matter the color uniform." The letter was dated October 30 and continued, "I submit this letter to honor all police officers, military personnel and first responders. Your service and sacrifice make the world a better place for all. Thank you."</i>

The sheriff of Gwinnett County responded, "We're deeply appreciative of this act of kindness from these men. We think that Officer Toney would also be appreciative of their actions and we hope you are, too."

Officer Toney was allegedly killed by 18-year-old Tafahree Maynard who has been on the run from the police for two days before he was finally captured. Maynard was found hiding in a shed armed with a lawnmower blade after an extensive two-day manhunt. Maynard refused to surrender and police shot and killed him.

The inmates behind the letter describe themselves as "a group of Christian men who wish to express heartfelt condolences to Officer Toney's family and all Gwinnett County staff."

The letter continued, "This was a tragic incident that never should have occurred. And though law enforcement and criminals may be considered opposites, the intrinsic value of a human life transcends those boundaries by far. Right is right and wrong is wrong. No matter the color uniform."
