"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.

Tribute To A Fallen Hero.. There are not enough words to adequately thank the brave men and women AND their fsmilies who bravely protect our neighborhoods, schools, our families and the innocent. They courageously run toward danger to become human shields, to protect lives they don't even know in order to deflect harm and the unthinkable reality of death to all lives in time of danger. Special Agent De Greaun Frazier, a family man had the greatest quality of virtue and bravery a person can possess, who willingly sacrifices their own life, to save the lives of others-that is a hero and much more! God bless our Law Enforcement, Fire Dept. Medical Professional, First Responders and their families whose mission is to PROTECT AND SERVE with dignity and honor. Gratefully, Jo Ellen Hamilton

I am deeply moved at hearing of the passing of Special Agent De'Greaun Frazier. My spirit will be at east knowing that he is above the stars, in the midst of wonder and beautify. His family can low into the horizon and see his star high above watching over them. He was a man that bravely took on the badge of brothers. He was a man who wanted to make a change in the neighborhoods, in the world. He is loved and that will never change. He will always be within the heart of those who loved him dearly. For his fellow Law Enforcement Officers, I know that they too will heal, and make sure who ever was responsible will not leave this earth until he has paid for his crime. I make it my promise if he is imprisoned, I will spend the rest of my life written to the parole board to deny this person or persons freedom, The is no parole to anyone who take the like a beloved Officer of the Law. Please look to the star tonight , and you will feel his presence, and it will always be with you, within, and there in your heart for the Dear Lord to Comfort you. God Bless.

Special Agent Frazier, words can not describe the mortal sin committed by taking your life in such a cowardly manner. Not only did this despicable criminal take you from your family, but he stole the childhood innocence of your youngsters.

You faithfully did your duty at great personal risk to make this country a better place...for that, your family should be very proud. We will do our duty to always honor your memory and sacrifice.

James 1:27 God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

"Many in the ranks of the law enforcement and military professions die protecting the freedoms of our nation...their battlefields are just different."

Thank you for so faithfully serving our nation. Forever rest in peace...Brother.

R. L. Dent
Oregon State Police (Ret.)

My brother, I remember this scenario having been played out so often. All of our work is dangerous, but when played out when the suspect has control is extremely dangerous. No one would be critical of this undercover operation for I am sure that you did what you believe was necessary. I am heart broken to hear of the loss of your life while trying to make the street safer for just one more day. Stand down my brother for your tour has ended, have served us well. God bless you and your family.

TO THE FAMILY, FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES OF TENNESSEE BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION, SPECIAL AGENT DE'GREAUN FRAZIER.

My heart is filled with great sadness at learning of the lost of your loved one and fellow Officer.
We in the law enforcement community are a family, although our uniforms may be a different style and vary in color, a badge, shield or star may be pinned upon our chest.
Our areas of enforcement may vary but our goals are the same, to Serve and Protect our communities. We consist of many different agencies from across the nation, for we are: Municipal Police Officers, Sheriff's Deputies, State Police Investigators, State Highway Patrol Troopers, Conservation Police Officers, College Campus Police Officers, Correctional Officers and Federal Agents just to name a few.
We patrol small towns, large cities, college campuses, county roads, state highways, state prisons, county jails, state parks and the United States Borders.
Whether active duty or retired, we are one family, a Law Enforcement Family, the thin blue line of protectors, brothers and sisters bonded together by HONOR, SERVICE and PRIDE.
Daily we honor our fallen brothers and sisters never forgetting their sacrifice and the sacrifice of their families.
Daily our position is clear that we Serve and Protect our communities without faltering and with no hesitation.
Daily we show pride in our chosen profession LAW ENFORCEMENT, for we willingly walk the line of good over evil facing the unknown with courage keeping our trust and our faith in GOD.
We know that evil roam these streets and at any moment in the course of performing our duties the ultimate sacrifice might be required of us in the service to our community, for Law Enforcement is not a job but a calling and only a few will make the decision to commit to that calling to serve for some will give all that they have.
ALL LIVES MATTER - LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS SHOULD BE RESPECTED - If we don't respond to that call for help, or investigate that suspicious subject, or stop for that stranded motorist, or rush to that call of shots fired then who will?
SPECIAL AGENT FRAZIER
You did not die in vain.
You sacrificed your life in the service to the citizens in the State of Tennessee with HONOR, PRIDE and DISTINCTION.
I'm proud to have worn the uniform of a law enforcement officer like you did.
I'm proud to have pinned the badge upon my chest like you did.
I'm proud to have Served and Protected my community as you did.
I'm proud to call you my BROTHER!
I commend you my fallen brother for making the ultimate sacrifice in the performance of your duty.
For you left us doing what you chose to do.
Performing a job you were trained to do.
Upholding the oath you swore to do.
Most importantly doing what you loved to do.........Serving and Protecting your community with Honor and Pride making a better and safer place for us all.
FOR THOSE WHO FIGHT FOR IT, "LIFE HAS A FLAVOR THE PROTECTED WILL NEVER KNOW".
FINAL CALL
Special Agent Frazier status.......................................... Special Agent Frazier status.......................................... Special Agent Frazier status.......................................... Attention All Units..........................Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, Special Agent De'Greaun Frazier having served the citizens in the State of Tennessee with HONOR, PRIDE and DISTINCTION is now 10-42.
Rest in Peace my fallen BROTHER, YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!!!
