Reflections for Sergeant Robert Brandon Paudert


Another sacrifice on a day when 3 were given. So sad this day is. Three police officers in this country lost their lives to gunfire. My heart goes out to these men's families, friends and co-workers. May these sacrifices never be forgotten! The bravest of the brave have fallen! My prayers are with all concerned. Someday God will grant us the understanding.

We wearing the badge always seem to have the answer to questions we're asked each shift, but during these times we're asking the questions "Why". As we huddle together for strength with the the families who gave of their sons in the days head, I pray for not only strength, but wisdom. I know the lord gave Brandon and his partner Bill both! Thank you to you both for your sacrifice.

Officer Paudert - It is difficult to fathom the loss of a police officer, it is even more difficult to envision that officer being the son of the police chief. My condolences to your family, friends and co-workers.

Thank you for your service to the people of West Memphis and the state of Arkansas. May God grant you and your partner/cousin, Officer Evans, eternal rest and may His perpetual light shine upon you.

My prayers go out to the family of a true hero. I wear the thin blue line on my uniform every day to remind me and others of the sacrifice that many have given in the line of duty. I remember Brandon from high school. There has been an outpouring of love and remembrance on behalf of the Bartlett High School class of '88. To Chief Paudert...the officers of the Bartlett Police Department are heartbroken, crushed with sorrow and grief. Our prayers are with you.

His Judgment Day:
The officer stood and faced his God, Which must always come to pass. He hoped his shoes were shinning, Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, Officer, How shall I deal with you? Have you always turned the other cheek To my church have you been true?"
The officer squared his shoulder and said, "No, Lord, I guess I aint, Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays, And at times my talk was rough, And sometimes I've been violent Because the streets are tough.
But I never took a penny That wasn't mine to keep.. Though I worked a lot of overtime, when the bills got too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help Though at times I shook with fear. And sometimes, God forgive me, I've wept an unmanly tear.
I know I don't deserve a place among the people here. They never wanted me around except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here, Lord, it needn't be so grand. I never expected or had too much, But if you don't...I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne, where the saints often trod. As the officer waited quietly for the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, Officer. You've borne your burdens well. Come walk a beat on heaven's streets, You've done your time in hell"

God didn’t promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain; but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears and light for the way.
