Reflections for Officer James Douglas Schultz

You will never be forgotten by those of us who worked with you, Big Jim. Always so much fun to be around. You have been, and always will be missed and loved by those left behind.
Rest in peace, friend.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 13th 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.

Rest In Peace

"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.

Thinking of you and your loved ones on this day. Continue to watch over your loved ones and protect them from harm. Continue to visit them in their dreams so they know you are still watching over them. You are a true hero and heroes never die.

It has been 10 years since you were born to Heaven. I hope that the passage of time has helped your family, friends and co-workers deal with the pain of your loss. I hope they remember those moments with you that were most special to them and have a smile or laugh.

I also pray for the motorist involved as this is an event you can never forget, but would most fervently wish to. God grant peace and comfort to all involved.

Rest well, warrior. Thank you for your distinguished service and dedication to duty. Your brothers and sisters in blue will carry on down here as you patrol the streets of Heaven.

Regardless how bad I felt in the Sally Port Jim would make me laugh. Giant of a man, always glad to see him. Still sad I did not make it to Yuma for the funeral. He lives on in many ways. RKW...
