It will be 20 years this September and not a day go by that I don't think of you. I miss the talks we had on the weekends and you also telling me how you going to own McDonald's one day and make it better. Hope you are proud of the woman I've become with you watching over me I feel like I can do any and everything I put my mind too. Some days I long for just one more conversation with you just to see how you doing, to hear your voice and hear you laugh just one more time. I wish you could have gotten the chance to meet Trinitee you great granddaughter I know she would have loved you just as much as I do. I love and miss you so very much but I know one day we will meet again until then keep watch over us.

13 years ago today, the Thin Blue Line got a little bit thinner.

Officer Glenn, we have not forgotten, and your sacrifice was not in vein. Thank you for your service.

Rest easy brother.

Officer Alvin Glenn was dedicated and truly cared about the people he worked with. He would do his best to make life manageable for the guys. He would even share the latest news with them and treated them with dignity. I had the privilege of working with him in 2000 as a fellow Detention Officer. Rest in Peace. You will never be forgotten.

To the family and friends of Officer Alvin Sherman Glenn and his fellow officers:

On behalf of our entire family, we wish to pay honor to Alvin's memory on the ninth anniversary of the day he so tragically lost his life. His heroism, valor and bravery will be forever remembered.

Our family lost our beloved Larry Lasater when he was fatally shot in April of 2005 during a foot pursuit of two bank robbers, so we know the anquish you are still experiencing.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the service Officer Glenn gave to his community and the citizens of South Carolina, and the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on September 17, 2000.

"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.

Ofc. A. Glenn, what is so sad is that those inmates never even think about one thing. That we are people like they are and we are just doing our jobs. I have heard many stories about you from current Officers at that Jail. And you are so honored that they renamed the Jail after you...God bless your family!

So sad and senseless--- even more tragic are the odds of one officer handling 64 dangerous inmates... cuts should never be mandated for downsizing any civic posts curtailing civil unrest and unruliness, but certainly more funds should be allocated for additional police manpower... any government that would cut funding for additional training and police forces are just as criminal as these monstrous offenders....

You'll Never Walk Alone

When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark.
At the end of the storm is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark.
Walk on through the wind,
Walk on through the rain,
Tho' your dreams be tossed and blown.
Walk on, walk on with hope in your heart and you'll never walk alone,
You'll never walk alone.
