Reflections for Auxiliary Officer Aubrey R. Williams

Officer Williams, it's now been 32 years. I'm convinced that you are well in trenched in the Heaven District of Law Enforcement and helping to keep things safe up there, not that it's really needed, but a cop is a cop is a cop.

God Bless you, Brother and may your eternal rest be ever peaceful.

Aubrey,
It is hard to believe you are gone so long.
It seems like just last year we would work the park, or traffic details together. You were a great example to me when I first started as an Auxiliary; 26 years ago.
I learned so much from you in how you lived, worked and died. We think of you often and are blessed to have known you. We are honored to have worked with you!
John

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 20th 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.

You are loved and missed by many, especially your family.
The pain and the pride are forever.

Rest In Peace

Officer Williams, today marks the 19th anniversary of your tragic death. You not only lost your life in the service of others, but as an Auxiliary, you gave it without pay. You served your community and you are a hero.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.

"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.
