"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.

Minhas Mais Sinceras Condolências aos estimados amigos e irmãos policiais do Little Elm Police Department pela morte do tão estimado detective Jerry Walker . mesmo com leis duras , os criminosos insistem em enfrentar a policia local e acabam cometendo atrocidades imperdoáveis contra a vida dos policiais , eles devem ser duramente combatidos em qualquer parte do mundo .
Sou o 2º sergeant Marcelo , Policia Militar do Estado do Rio de Janeiro ( PMERJ ) e aqui é comum e banal a morte de policiais . as leis aqui no Brazil são inúteis por serem muito antigas e isso ocasiona um intenso combate entre a policia e os criminosos , tudo sem o amparo do estado ! A Morte de policiais aqui é diária , estamos com nosso armamento defasado , salários atrasados e as viaturas sucateadas ( Volkswagen Voyage ) .
Amigos , falo o idioma "Portugues" , Não deixem que o lado mal os vença ! muito obrigado por esse espaço e que Deus os Proteja !
