I was a dispatcher that night and had just came to work the midniht shift! I will never forget getting a call of an accident on interstate and Clark was on duty and tried to reach him to go to the accident! The phone rang and Lt. Steve Gray at the time ask me was anything going on and yes we have an accident and can't make contact with Clark (all of a sudden it just came over me) I said Steve I hope Clark is not involved! I dispatched some other officer's to the Interstate and sure enough it was Clark! I too new Clark but he was new to our area so I didn't know him well but I will never forget that night! RIP Trp. Clark Simpson!

I never knew you but I was driving past the spot you lost your life this week and saw the new memorial signs that have been erected around the state for all the ASP Heroes and I thought about your sacrifice and your family's sacrifice. Gone but not Forgotten!

I barely got to know him.

It just goes to show you how precious life is, he had come to replace the Trooper we had just loss.

Then he was Gone but Not Forgotten.

I-40 at the 209.

That's generally my Moment of Silence when I pass thru that area, for the longest time, I would take the Biscoe exit, just to not think that I have loss two of my co workers so close together in the same area.

May you Rest in Peace! Clark Kent "Superman" Simpson.

"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.

Simpson, It's been a long time but everytime I look at your picture it bring back the last day that I talked to you. I remember telling you that I was going to the Marine Corps and you were going to the State Troopers, I learned of your passing when I was overseas and it really troubled me then and it still does today. I lost a real friend in you, but you will never be forgotten and may GOD Bless You and Your Family. Forever Friends.
