Officer Allen,
On today, the 8th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Nassau County. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. There is no tougher job in Law Enforcement than that of a Corrections Officer.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 4th 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 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. I hold your family in thought and prayer today.

Rest In Peace.

"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.

It's been a few months since the ride and since I've heard from anyone from your department. I want you to know you're in my thoughts and your family is in my thoughts almost daily. Each time I get on my bike, I think of you and the others who have given the ultimate.

Although we never met you will always have a special place in my heart. You were added to the wall this year and I was there to meet with your family and friends. I rode in your honor for the Police Unity Tour. It was an honor for me to ride for you. You are greatly missed by everyone. Your wife was so nice and your kids are so cute. I met several of your family members, so many that I was overwhelmed and cannot remember all the names. (Sorry) I also met up with some of your co-workers who actually helped me get in touch with your family. They were great too.

John, I will do my best to not forget you. I gave one of my memorial bracelets to your wife and I am still wearing the other one. I also got your name off of the wall and took one of your department patches and have them in a frame.

Rest in peace. You will not be forgotten.
