This has been very hard for me since I was contacted and asked to respond to the Command Post and give support to the LEOs who responded that day. I did not know Chip but am close to several of his coworkers, then learned that I almost lost three friends except for one of his coworkers who had responded. That Officer saved a Sgt from Chip's Agency and two BP Agents. Alot of heroes wre with this incident but Chip is the ultimate hero. Rest in Peace Chip! We will miss you. You remain in all our thoughts and prayers as does his family and coworkers.

Rest in peace Lt. Chiapperini.


Have ASP will travel.

Justice is the one thing you should always find, you gotta saddle up your boys you gotta draw a hard line.

When the gun smoke settles we'll sing a victory tune and we'll all meet back at the local saloon.

And we'll raise up our glasses against evil forces singing whiskey for my men beer for my horses.
