R.I.P. Motor officer

R.I.P. Sir...


"Police Officer James Foster succumbed to injuries sustained the previous evening in a motorcycle crash while he responded to an accident that was located on I-12."

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one who's blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best

Matthew 5:9
"Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called sons of God."

How fucking dumb do you have to be to turn in front of a motorcycle and two cars with their flashers on?!

Re: R.I.P. Motor officer

That should be a ban on driving for at least 2 years.

Sheesh, I lost my licence for 2 years for doing 100mph in a 60mph zone. Didn't hit another vehicle, let alone kill anyone.

Wow, that is a very stiff penalty. First time DUI offenders here lose their license for 7 months or so.

See I think that's bullshit too. I got 2 speeding tickets and rolled through a stop sign at 3am in the middle of nowhere (literally) all three separate occasions within a year when I was 20. .. and I was slapped with a 1 yr suspension.

A Co worker blows a .19 and gets a slap on the hands for 6 mths and he was in a highly congested area
