"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.

I was Brent's FTO at the Banning Station. He had a kind and gentle nature and was larger than life. Brent had found his calling and was dedicated to it. Rest in Peace.

Tears of a Cop
I have been where you fear to go...
I have seen what you fear to see...
I have done what you fear to do...
All of these things I've done for you.

I am the one you leaned upon...
The one you cast your scorn upon...
The one you brought your troubles to...
All these people I've been for you.

The one you ask to stand apart...
The one you felt should have no heart...
The one you call the man in green...
But I was human, could you not see...

And through the years I came to see...
That I was not what you ask of me...
So take this badge and take this gun...
Will you take it? Will anyone?

And when you watch a person die...
And hear the battered baby cry...
Then so you think that you can be...
All of those things you had ask of me...

Brent, you are forever in our hearts and your family forever in our prayers. You are truly missed

It is you, Uncle Brent, who I have thought of when I made my decision to become an officer of the law and it will be you, who I will be thinking of during my journey. You were an outstanding Sheriff, a wonderful uncle and great friend to all. I only hope to become half of what you were; a person who many can look up to and know that they are loved.
I miss you dearly.

Thinking of you on the 4th anniversary of your EOW.
This is especially sad because you left a family of 6
kids. I can only imagine how difficult it was to let you
go. May the Lord continue to heal their hearts as they
trust in Him.

You are my biggest hero; your gentleness, kindness and humility, among a few attributes, have taught me and other so much in life. I love you and miss you so much, i still can't believe you're gone. I know I will see you and hug you and kiss you again.
Thank You,
your daughter

I had the pleasure of working with my partner, Brent, for more than 7 yrs at the Banning/Cabazon Station. I will always remember graveyard shift and having a cup at the AM/PM in Calimesa. He was so very proud of his family! He carried the family photo on his PDA. May God watch over his family. Rest In Peace My Brother.
