In Honor of your Sacrifice and for your family and friends, I salute you as a HERO!

"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.

Your father was one of the first officers to take me out on the road and show me the ropes. He was also the man who introduced me to you. He was so proud of you. You will be greatly missed by all of us. Rest In Peace brother. We’ll take it from here.

Rest In Peace Officer Doss. You are a hero and brave warrior for taking up the mantle of a Cop in time when doing so is so tough and dangerous. You are a hero because as most would run away from the danger, you ran towards it. You wanted to do something about it, trying to make the lives of others safer.

My deepest and heartfelt condolences to the ENTIRE Doss family, especially to his father Officer Doss Sr., and to his Glenn's mother and 9 month old child. This incident is so tragic and awful that I cannot express my true feelings into words. What I can do is pray for the entire family asking God to bless the Doss family and provide peace to Glenn's parents and girlfriend. May Glenn's soul now rest in Heaven where he will look over his family.
My condolences also extends to the Glenn's brothers and sisters with the Detroit Police Department, and to Chief James Craig.
