Reflections for Trooper First Class Jimmie Harold White, II

We still miss you. You died doing three things that you loved - being an Arkansas State Trooper, riding a Harley and escorting the Blue Angels. Your great humor and impersonations will never be forgotten. You are a shining example of what is right. I know you are watching over us and riding Harleys in heaven with Tim.

Jimmy, I was just thinking of you today. I have told my kids about our exploits at the U of A.... well most of them. You were a great friend and taught me so much about enjoying life. I'll bring you a beer and stick of Beamans. Miss you brother. God Bless.

Jimmy was my riding partner when the ASP had the motorcycle squad, we rode side by side on many occasions. He was one of the best and I considered him one of my closet friends. I'll never forget him...Gods speed Jimmy!!

I was thinking about you today, my friend. Found some old pictures from our ROTC days. You always called me your co-pilot, you were one of my very best friends. Who would've thought we'd both end up in law enforcement, Ha Ha- your joke you know! I think of you often and miss you always. Hope you're enjoying the wild blue yonder.....

Eight years ago today, almost to the minute. I will never forget the good times we had, as well as the bad, or the examples in life you provided. You made an enormous impressions on me. Always my "go to" in a time of need or advice. The conversations we had ease my mind because I know you were a Christian. I know you are in heaven. Say hello to Tim for me. I love you brother.

Hey Jimmie,
We all miss you and think about you all the time. Every day when I go home on I-440, I see the sign they put up in your memory. I wish you were here to see it. I imagine you see it from Heaven anyway. Obviously you have touched so many lives in a positive, loving, way. What a testimony!
See you when I get there...

To me you will always be known as the "Gentle Giant". You are missed and thought about quite often. See you when I get to heaven.

I was a classmate of Jimmie he and I were in the same squad, if I was not looking at the back of his head in the chow line he was looking at the back of mine. I will never forget the gentle giant as a friend.

Jimmy, you are gone from our presence but not our hearts.
Thanks for your sacrifice and please continue to watch over all of us.

7 years have passed since we lost you. There is hardly not a day that I do not think of what you sacrficed. You are not forgotten.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the seventh 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 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.

Hey man! Can't believe it's been so long since we lost you. I think about you all the time and always smile remembering all our great talks. I'm still amazed that whenever a group of us gets together there is always a Jimmie story. You touched so many of us in a great way. Your spirit lives on brother. Love Ya!

Jimmie, I never had a chance to meet you in person. Today in the mail I received my promotion letter to TFC, and I immediately thought of you. I will wear my "skeeter wings" in your honor and do my best to live up to the example that you set for us here. Rest well, bro.

I wrote this poem sometime back in memory of Trooper Jimmie Harold White, II, as he was a dedicated, unselfish Trooper that took his job serious, dedicated himself to his service to the field of Law Enforcement and to the citizens of the State of Arkansas. He is sadly missed and although gone, he'll never be forgotten.

Respectfully Submitted,
Michael Rayford Powell

Trooper Tears

I’ve been where most fear to ever go
I’ve seen what others fear to see
I’ve done what others fear to do
While on duty, all these things I did for thee

I was the one that you leaned upon
I was the one you cast your scorn
I was the one you cast your troubles to
I’ve been all of these and just for you

I’m the one you would ask to stand apart
I was the one you felt should have no heart
I was the one you called your man in blue
Yes I was human just like you

Throughout the years I came to see
Protecting your life was my destiny
I wore a badge and yes a gun
Will you be the one to carry on for me?

Will someone carry on my legacy?
Will someone brave do this for me?
Whenever you watch a person die…
Whenever you hear a battered baby cry…
Wipe your tears when you walk by
We’re Arkansas State Troopers with tears we sigh…

Serve and protect our society
Please do your best I did for thee
I pray that whoever follows me
Will be willing to lay down their life
As Arkansas State Troopers disarm trouble and strife!

Jimmie, I've tried to do this several times, but it is so hard to get through the hurt I feel everyday. You were my best friend. I loss I feel is probably not the same as your family, but you were my brother I never had. I can and will never forget our good times together in college and after. You taught me about character and grace and getting through tough times. Even the discussion we had the weekend before the accident plays through my head daily. I have changed the way I live my life since you've been gone and try to enjoy things the way you always did. I'm still no good at golf. As we both said, life is short. Yours was just way too short. Your family and wife still miss you as do your friends. I don't think that there is one person who knows you that you have not touched in a positive way. I continue to miss your "Hey Man" phone calls, the bad Bob & Doug imitations, "Ol' Stupid", your cooking ( we all miss that), and your love of life and sense of humor. I knew about you as well as anyone, but I keep turning up facets of your life that I did not know, and meeting your friends that have become my friends. The is the first time I have been able to complete this, but I wanted people to know you like I did. A genuine friend, great husband, loyal son. I do miss my "Wee Jimmie". Take care good sir, and God Bless You. I hope to see you in the future

Jimmy, it was an honor to have known you and the opportunity to be apart of the ASP Mortorcycle Squad with you. You will not be forgotten.

I remember Jimmie living across the hall from me in Troop School at Camden and one day we were told that something was stolen from one of the recruit's room and I had to look through Jimmie's stuff to see if he had taken it. I remember saying to myself, "there is no way Jimmie could have taken anything that didn't belong to him". I didn't even begin to look. That is the kind of guy he was his humor helped us get through the 14 weeks of heavenly bliss we call Troop School. There is a picture floating around out there somewhere of a much lighter Jimmy and I on the hood of Kieth Eremea's Patrol Car just before we graduated.
(No, we didn't dent it). Ride on Brother, I know the highways in heaven are smooth!

6 years ago today you were taken away from our family. I think about that day often and can still remember hearing you on the radio that morning. You were a great Trooper and you are not forgotten!

Rest in Peace, Trooper White. Your sacrifice is not forgotten.

Officer 11169

May 31, 2008

"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.
