Fallen Deputy Hailed A Hero

Lean and muscular with a chiseled jaw, T.J. Freeman looked every bit the street cop that he was.  His back bore a tattoo that stretched shoulder to shoulder: “Blessed are the peacekeepers.”  It was as if he was born to be a police officer. His mother’s family name was Justice.

A preacher who spoke at Freeman’s funeral Monday said being a lawman “came out of his pores.”  Lying in his casket as mourners paid their respects, Freeman had on a pair of white Oakley sunglasses.
