Deputy Sheriff Stubbs,

It’s hard to believe it’s been 17 years. I still remember standing there in the Kwik Shop parking lot watching the ambulance leave with you. Our families had so much fun coming out to your crazy Halloween Parties and get togethers. I drive by the cemetery several times a week and say a pray for you each time.
Your daughters have grown in to beautiful amazing woman – you would be so very proud, Teresa did a great job.
Well as you know, your brother became a Law Enforcement officer as well and I hope you were there to greet him when he came home Friday . I feel so sorry for your mom and family, dealing with a second son being taken away, way too early. I hope they charge his killer with murder and throw away the key.
God Bless the Stubbs family.

Two Topeka Police Officers were killed in the line of duty last night and it reopened the wound that your passing left. I looked up your name on Google, curious as to what I would find, and it led me to this site. I had no idea that this existed, but seeing the reflections from other people, many of whom never had the privilege of knowing you, and one so recent as last week helped restore a little bit of the faith I have lost in humanity over the last few days.

I miss you now as much as ever, although we are approaching 15 years since you left us. We are doing okay, but I know I can speak for my 3 sisters and Mom that not a day goes by that we don't think of you. Thank you again for the sacrifices you made, not just for our family, but for the community.

We love you!

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 14th anniversary year 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 line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

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

I pray for the solace of all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Thanks to your friends for sharing their devotion to you through their reflections.

"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.

So sad you departed so prematurely. It's hard to make
sense of difficult things, but it's not up to us to figure it
out. Thanks for your service and I am sure your presence is missed!

Rest in Peace, brother. Your service and sacrifice will never be forgotten. Stand tall and be proud that you were called to an eternal beat in Heaven. Continue to watch over your family and steer them from danger. May they be comforted by knowing that you are a hero who will be by their sides forever.

I was with you the night we raided that house. It was really hard to believe when I heard that you had died. I am thankful for the two people that pulled you from your car and started CPR. You will always be missed. Allen (Shawnee County Sheriff 93'-01').
