God Bless the family of this HERO. Such a senseless, cowardly deed committed by scum. May the fellow officers of this hero get thru this time of deep sorrow. God Bless all the heros in blue who go about their duty to uphold the law for we citizens. Stay safe to his fellow men in blue and Lord, please get this little family thru the days and weeks ahead as they try to understand this unspeakable act.

For Sergeant Brandon Paudert
and
Officer Bill Evans:

The assignment of patrol is one of the most dangerous tours-of-duty that any law officer engages in his job. Nobody who patrols can ever be more at risk, on a daily basis, knowing that each shift could well be his or her last. Time and again the sudden case of resistance and the tragedy that follows repeats itself. Each situation brings the clearest message that no law officer anywhere is without high risk.

We pray for Brandon and Bill, their families, friends, co-workers and those who care about them. We also pray for the lives of the Crittenden County sheriff and chief of patrol, and any others, who have been injured coming to the aid of fellow law officers. We pray for a full and quick recovery.

I am proud salute Sergeant Brandon Paudet and Officer Bill Evans of the West Memphis Police and our brothers of the Crittenden County SO.

In Honor of your Sacrifice and for your family and friends, I salute you as a HERO!

"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 whose 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.
