Sounds like somebody may have gotten caught doin something he wasn't supposed to and rather than face the facts he took the easy way out. Just thinkin
omg you have a lot of nerve to make statements like that and say its based on "i dont know for a fact". get your facts straight. obviously you did not know officer mac.

This was an officer with a kind heart who extended compassion while still doing his job to protect and serve. Many fortuante people were touched by his compassion and saved by his actions. May he Rest in Peace.

R.I.P Officer Mac! You were not only a good cop, but also a good person! And this is coming from a person who didn't like cops much! He was just a man, not someone who hid behind his badge, like other cops! You were missed after resigning, but now even more! He is now with the Guardian of Guardians.
Rest in Peace.....

to annoymous from u.s. how dare you say those terrible things about a person who commits suicide and then turn around and say you don't mean to be disrespectful. how ignorant. my brother committed suicide 7 years ago. you don't know the mental anguish he went through the last ten years of his life, before he took he only way out he knew of to find peace. to think of all of the suicide victims that are alone at the time of their deaths, to think, they think their is no other way out to solve their problems or rid themselves of their demons, must be horendous for them, may this patrolman, mac, my brother and anyone else who took their own life, rip.6187

You are an ass Mr. "Here" Looks like you are the only pig around here! If you knew him, you wouldn't be saying that. I'm not a big cop person myself, I had my bouts in the past, but I knew Mac, he was more than a cop, he was a human being in and out of uniform! Takes real balls typing words to show how much of a man you are!

I am so terribly sorry for your loss, and the fact that people have no respect or morals not only for Tom but the family he left behind. I am also saddened that the actions of a department that was supposed to be family, his brothers and sisters, are the ones who cared so little to drive him to this point. Backstabbing doesn't even begin to describe them. May God protect and comfort you in your time of grief!

So sorry to hear of this officer's death. Even sorrier that he was in such a dark place that he felt he had no other options. My heart goes out to his family, friends and former co-workers on the Lebanon police force and beyond.

How sad and tragic. I didn't know him, but had heard lots of good things about him in the past.
I don't mean this to sound disrespectful, but suicide is a selfish, cowardly way to deal with one's problems.
Ya know what, until you have lived in ones shoes of DEPRESSION to this extent... SHUT YOUR FACE!!!!!!! Hopefully you will NEVER EVER have to deal with a situation like this one!! IDIOT, nobody knows what he was feeling so to call him a coward is WRONG, apparently he wasn't a coward if he was a police officer -- did you lock you up at one time or what???
