Reflections for Police Officer Robert Alexander

My dear friend Bobby, we were in the academy . I was so excited when I found out you , Fitz and Powell were coming to the SW district with me. You and I were bonded for life, backed each other up on every call, you were always so protective of your sister in blue. That night you left from backing me up to respond to that call. I can still hear your 1023. I think of you always and miss you even more. Continue to rest my forever friend and brother. ( former) Officer C. Childs.

Rest in peace always knowing that your brave and selfless actions saved civilian lives that day. Know that your service and sacrifice will never, ever be forgotten by your law enforcement brethren.

Robb,I remember when you and I graduated from Lombard High School and you went to Carver and I went to Mervo, never realizing that we would see each other again at the Baltimore City Police Academy, keeping each other grounded until graduation day. Who knew that we would make our1st arrest together outside your house off Belair Rd. moments after your graduation party. We were so proud of our accomplishments. Me, you and kevin, partners always. Other than when you're spending time with your wife and baby girl, I don't remember you being more happy. Your daughter was your world. I think of you often while looking at our class pictures and missing the bond we once shared. Your Brother, Your Friend.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 26th 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. You will always be remembered and revered.

I pray for solace for all those that love and miss you for I know the pain and pride are forever. The reflections left by your family and friends were touching and they are in my heart's embrace.

Robert we were all so young working that midnight shift and although we worked different sectors we saw no sector boundaries just to drive by and check on one another when some one had a car stop or a call, We never talked much, but when you were working I and others could depend on having a ride by when we were handling a call. You were a Hero that night you went home to assist our Lord in heaven after saving the citizen from being struck by the speeding vehicle...As I reflect on the years we served as public servants, yours was too short... But I know that our Lord called you away because he needed an Angel to look out for others. We will see each other again and will connect about our service and working in the Southwest District My you family continue to be BLESSED

To my friend it seems like yesterday when I would come down Baltimore St. Stop @ Wendy's and talk to Grace. Right after that, you would ask me all kinds of questions about being a Police Officer. Well you made it, God has you policing heaven. Until we meet again.

"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.

Robert Alexander was a schoolmate of mine at Carver High School in Baltimore. He was a honest, forthright and excellent human being as a teenager, so it did not surprise any of us that he would become a police officer. He was a fine point guard on our basketball team and as unselfish off the court as he was on the court. As evidenced by his heroic deeds, his unselfishness is unparalled.

We ask Thy blessings and eternal rest to all our brothers and sisters
Who have sacrificed their very lives in the performance of
their duties. Give their loved ones the peace and
Strength to bear the anguish of their loss. Remove all
resentment from their hearts, knowing that eternal
peace and rest will abide their departed loved ones
forever. This we beg, Thy name forever and ever,
