I think about my brother's smile all the time. We travelled the world together and he always had that same broad smile across his face ... even when he was too tall for the B&B bed in Scotland. Thanks for following your other brothers into law enforcement and I hope that you found it as rewarding as I did. I'm sorry that you didn't have more time to enjoy the work or to spend time with your family. May God keep an eye out for all police officers and their families!

I miss my brother. We used to travel the world together. We went to England & Scotland (yes it is a different country) over to France through the Chunnel - Justin told me when we came out into France that he never thought it was something he would do. We even traveled to Japan together. It was wonderful traveling with you Justin. Thanks for your company.

Rest in Peace, Detective Mullis. Your sacrifice is not forgotten.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 3rd 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.

I pray for solace for all that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace. Thanks to your family and friends for sharing their memories and devotion to you through their reflections.

Rest In Peace.

I could not believe it when I heard the news. I have been trying to figure out what best to put here, when all I can think about is the week we spent rolling around that stinky "mini gym" as partners in physical tactics. Thank you for your service brother. To the family of Justin, thank you for allowing him to serve and your service to the State of Indiana. May each day bring more comfort.

Justin you will dearly be missed. It seems like yesterday that we were pushing the ground wondering if graduation was ever going to come. It is hard to swallow that class 05-164 lost another great officer. May you rest in peace my friend and god bless to your family and friends.

My Dearest Family and Friends

Somethings I'd like to say but first of all to let you know that I arrived okay.

I'm writing this from Heaven where I dwell with Our Lord above. where there's no more tears or sadness just eternal Love. Please don't be unhappy because I'm out of sight, remember that I'm with you every morning,noon and Night.

The Day I had to leave you when my Life on earth was through God picked me up and hugged me and He said I welcome you.
It's good to have you back again, You were missed while you were gone. As for your Dearest Family they'll be here later on.
I need you here so badly as part of my big plan. Theres so much we have to do to help our Moral Man.
Then God gave me a list of things that He wished for me to do, and foremost on that list of mine is to watch and care for you.
I'll be beside you everyday and through out the years, And when your sad. I'm standing there to wipe away your tears.
When You lie in bed at night the day's chores put to flight God and I are close you in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on Earth and all the loving years, because your only human they are bound to bring you tears.

Please don't be afraid to cry, it does releive the pain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned, But if I were to tell you You wouldn't understand.One thing is for certain, though my life on Earth is over I'm closer to you now than I ever was before.

To My many Friends, Trust God knows what is best.I'm still not far away from you I'm just beyond the crest.

So, If you can help somebody who is in sorrow or in pain, then you can say to God at night my day was not in vain.
And now I am contented that with my life. it was worth while,Knowing as I passed along the way I made somebody smile.
If you meet somebody who is down and feeling low just lend a hand and pick him up as on your way you go.
When Your walking down the street and you've got me on your mind just know Im walking in your footstep only a half a step behind.
And if you feel a gentel breeze or wind upon your face thats me just giving you a great big hug or just a soft embrace.
I will always love you from the land way up above We'll be in touch again soon
PS God sends his Love.


November 5, 2009

Thank you for all that you did.

To Detective Justin Mullis, to all family members and friends who call him beloved, and to his law enforcement family:

I was sorry to learn of Justin's death and extend my sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you have suffered. Words are insufficient to describe the sadness I feel for the Mullis family. May you find comfort in your faith and the support of the law enforcement community.

There are many police survivors who share this same journey with you, and that community will be there to support you. Justin's memory will be forever honored and revered.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the distinquished service Justin gave to his community and the citizens of Indiana and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on April 29, 2009.

Justin loved police work. Being a former peace officer, I used to tell Justin how great the job was and that he would be perfect for it. I was excited when I found out that he wanted to become an officer... and I was right - Justin was great at the job!

Justin - I will miss you forever. Your brother, Tim.

"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.

Justin was one of my roommates @ the academy. I was searching Yahoo trying to see what my academy buddies were up to, and instead I found this. I kept saying I was going to get down there to see you someday. Was telling old academy stories about us all to someone just the other week. I'll never forget all the aggravation Nick, Marshall, and myself gave you, but also will not forget how hard you worked to better the lives of yourself and your family. I'll see ya again, brother.
