Reflections for Police Officer Disdale O. Enton

Rest eternally in Peace, Brother.

Always had a smile on his face, and one of the nicest guys you would ever meet. Was an honor to know you.

I never 4get how cool you were brother. How you walked in the 107 precinct that day and I was sitting on the TS as a rookie feelin real down. You didnt even know me, but as you were walking by, you nodded your head to me and said " keep ya head up man....its gonna be alright". You were such an awesome soul.

I miss you brother. And, till this day, I still haven't met a more gentle, kind and loving soul. It's sometimes easy to say bad things about people but for you it was and still is impossible. I think of you often and I am proud to have known and served with you. RIP brother, I hope will see each other again some day. Everthing Irie now :)

"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.

Dale
Who could forget the times we had in FTU upon being assigned to the 113. You were a true gentleman, never complaining, always ready to take any assignment and help fellow officers. Our lockers were next to each other and I would look forward to your laugh (heard from the first floor) as I came down the stairs for a 12X8. After being transferred to K9 I could think of no man worthier than you to honor. DJ (Dale Junior) served for almost two years, conducted hundreds of searches, and apprehended many perpetrators before being retired for medical reasons. He now stays home, protecting the wife and kids, and serving as a constant reminder of the kind of man, and cop you were. A true guardian. I miss you every day pal. Rest easy, till we meet again.

To the family and loved ones of Police Officer Disdale O. Enton and his fellow officers with the New York City Police Department:

On this the fourth anniversary of Dale's tragic death, I wanted to honor and remember him today. Dale's professionalism and dedication will never be forgotten, nor will his valor and courage.

In reading the loving reflections left by his friends and co-workers I can see that he was very well respected and is sorely missed. I hope that God is holding him in the sweetest part of his heart and the most gentle part of his soul.

I am so sorry that Dale was robbed of his life so tragically, but through his heroism and the profound sense of duty with which he lived his life, he made an immeasurable difference. Others also live today as a result of his magnificant gift in being an organ donor. My son Larry also donated his organs after being shot in April of 2005, and our family has met the men who received his heart and his kidneys. To know that he helped others continue on with their lives and be there for their families has helped our healing, and I hope Dale's family has had the same experience. May Dale's spirit continue to soar and may his memory continue to inspire.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Dale gave to his community and the citizens of New York, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on August 28, 2002.

Dale, I said this when you were here and I'll continue saying this now that you are here no longer... You are a Genuine person, and one of the Best People that I have had the Honor of Meeting, no less Serving with... probably Thee Best Person! That spoken from my heart, and which I truly believe! It was a massive blow to me to see you go Dale! Though no longer here, I can always look to your ways as a source of strength... I'll never forget you Dale!

A Million Times

A million times we've needed you,
A million times we've cried.
If love alone could've saved you,
You would have never died.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we love you still.
In our hearts you hold a place,
No one else could ever fill.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn't go alone.
Part of us went with you,
The day God took you home.

God rest your soul, brave warrior.
