UPDATE: Ark. Town remembers fallen officer

As you remember these fallen officers, take comfort in recalling that they dedicated their lives to the same principles of honor, duty and courage that brought you to the badge. Such a life is truly rich. Take strength in knowing that when an officer falls, our resolve to serve those in need is not diminished. Our dedication to protecting those in danger is not weakened. Our commitment to remembering those with whom we shared the badge does not fade.

Godspeed, brothers and sisters. You fought the good fight. Now rest in peace…

Ark. -- Nearly every morning reserve Gassville police officer Jim Sell would eat what he called the "mini" farm breakfast at a local convenience store — eggs over easy, hash browns with onion, bacon — not too crispy but a little limp — and a piece of toast.

It was his routine, a routine that has now ended.

The veteran officer was killed when he was shot by a fugitive from Massachusetts he had pulled over at the Brass Door Restaurant in Gassville.
