February 12, 2014 Fargo, N.D. On February 10, Fargo, N.D. Jason Moszer was slain in the performance of his duty responding to a domestic dispute. In two short days the community of Fargo and surrounding areas has had an overwhelming response to the tragedy in support of the family that he leaves behind.
Not just the wife and two children, but the Officers that he served with who are equally heartbroken at the loss of the six year veteran as well.
While there has been what seems like an epidemic of Police hatred that has poisoned the country from every area in the nation what has happened in Fargo proves that it is not so.
In the two days enough food has been delivered to the Fargo Police station to over fill two full-sized refrigerators, two mini fridges and several boxes that Fargo police then sent to other law enforcement agencies in the area.
They have been sent dozens of flowers, hundreds of people have shaken officers hands and offered condolences, billboards have sprung up offering support. Pizza, soda, cookies, doughnuts, coffee and baked goods have been donated to the Officers during this time.
People have begun fundraisers for Officer Moszer’s family as well from charity motorcycle bike rides by the “Brotherhood of Old Bikers” who are planning a ride in May already to WDAY radio who already is selling blue-line window stickers, with “Moszer” printed in white letters on the blue line, and will be giving all proceeds to the officer’s family.
Others are selling Blue Light light bulbs and giving proceeds to the family.
There have been quite a few other on line sites set up just to donate to from a GoFundMe site and CrowdRise site to help benefit Officer Mozers family and even an ImpactGiveBack has been established to assist the family.
Yes we mourn the loss of the Officer, we are heartbroken for his wife, his children and the brothers, sisters and the citizens of Fargo, his County and the State of N.D.. All the Blue has been struck by his death as well as the death of the other brothers e have lost this week.
However it is encouraging to see that citizens are reaching out and showing the compassion that the Blue need now to carry on. It is because of these acts of kindness, a handshake, a kind word, a simple smile or small donation to a fallen officers family that make all the difference.
