14 years ago, I served on the jury that convicted Terry Jackson of murdering you! I will never forget that experience and it is one of my proudest accomplishments. We did the right thing!

RIP Detective Sam Guy.

Everyone in the detective division knew Sam Guy. I worked narcotics with his son David for awhile. Attended to his funeral and the death of such a fine officer and his heart broken family still haunts me. Did not know of an arrest. Thank God for it!

Just watched your story on "Cold Case". 24 years for you to rest in peace, but your brothers and sisters in blue never gave up the fight to find your killers. Your sacrifice will never be forgotten.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 37th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

I am glad that your killers were apprehended many years later and that investigators pursued them until they were caught.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace.

I pray for solace for all those who love and miss you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

"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.

I just watched the A&E Cold Cases program which featured this case. It's great knowing that no matter how much time passes, competent and motivated investigators are out there trying to bring our fallen officers assailants to justice. Rest in peace always Officer Guy and know that you will never be forgotten.

I worked with Sam's son (David) on the morning watch as a rookie. Sam was a detective and I worked the stakeout squad. I didn't know Sam well but his son was one of the finest officers I've ever met. I remember you all fondly. God Bless You All.

My father J.R. Cameron worked side by side with you and spoke highly of you. I was a young girl when you were killed but I remember dad talking about you. He kept the newspaper articles of your death in the police yearbook. You were a hero to him and to me. You are not forgotten and my prayers go to your family.
