Reflections for Trooper II Bobby Steve Booth

Oh my how I remember that day. I was making an arrest when it came over the radio. Handed it off to a unit assisting and I headed out to Stratford all the way hoping praying that it was not really true.
It is just like was only yesterday that I was sitting in the Sgt. Hood’s office talking about life then, the night before the whole area was to gather visiting. I know one day soon I will see my brother in Christ.

I am a retired DPS officer. I worked with Steve for several years. I was stationed in Memphis before transferring to Amarillo. Steve and I became very good friends and enjoyed being around him. He had a kind heart for everyone. Steve came down to Amarillo from from Stratford and we had lunch together. After lunch, I said bye to him and told him to be safe. The next day I was at home watching the evening news when the news anchor mentioned Steve's name. My heart broke and sank down to my stomach. I was in shock. I broke down and I had to call DPS communication to confirm that Steve was gone because I could not believe it. Miss you Steve. May God bless you. See you in heaven my friend.

My dad was in the DPS Academy with you and thought the world of you. He told me that y'all were always beside each other line and drills because of your last names. He also told me about the antics that y'all did in the academy. I sure wish I could have met you here on Earth, because my dad can sure picks some good friends. I find peace in knowing that one day I will get to meet you in Heaven and will get to hear you tell about you and my dad from your stand point.

Rest in Peace Trooper II Bobby Steve Booth. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice protecting the citizens of The Great State of Texas.

I Pray for Peace for your Family, Friends and Co-Workers. I also Pray that the hounds of hell are soon gnawing on the scum responsible for your murder. May his screams of anguish rise up from the lake of fire to warn other evil doers of their impending fate.

Steve you and I worked together when I was a Deputy for Moore Co. S.O. The night the drunk driver drove into the bar at Cactus was a laugh. Miss you eating pie at my house the memories are so great.

Steve it has been many years since we spoke last. I will never forget the silly laugh you have.
I remember the call we got one night about a pickup truck hitting a cow on U.S. 287. We found the truck but not the driver and we never found the cow. We looked high and low and then you stepped on a rattle snake and how white you got is unforgettable.
Miss you buddy.

To Steve Booth's Family,
I know not a day goes by that you don't miss your Trooper. When I worked for Stratford PD, there was, and hopefully still is, a memorial on the wall reminding every person that comes through the door just how dangerous this job can be, no matter where you serve.

"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 whos 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.
