Reflections for Senior Trooper Robert A. Hill, Sr.

Rest in peace my brother.

Rest in peace trooper Hill. I will always remember the week before you passed away, when I travelled up route 58 to work on the radio in your car, and as I pulled up to the scene of a just concluded car chase, you were there washing the eyes of a suspect who had been pepper sprayed. It struck me as a very professional and compassionate act. May God bless you and your family

Sir:
Though you and I never met, I know of you a what a special man you were. I am a retired motor officer from another jurisdiction but my pal is a retired trooper. Last Saturday, October 17th, 2015, my friend and me rode in the TOY RIDE that is still done every year in your honor. And I do mean 'HONOR' ... May you rest in peace Trooper Hill, and GOD bless your family...

We became close in high school and went our seperate ways after. But when we saw each other from time to time it was like we never parted. When my family needed you, you were always there. I miss you to this day and I will never forget you. Rest well my long lost friend. I hope to see you one day when my life comes to an end. Save a place for me.

"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.

Just stopping by my friend. You and your family are often in my thoughts and prayers. Although I don't think we ever met, I know that I will always remember you.

Though I never had the chance to meet you when I worked in IOW, everyone I knew had known you well, and spoke so highly of you.

Indeed, you were a hero to so very many people, not just among officers, but citizens alike.

May we all aspire to become just like you as we walk our path down life's highway. God bless you Sir.
