AS A NATIVE OF INDIANAPOLIS, with many good friends and mentors on the Police Department, I offer my deepest condolences to Officer Leath's family, and her colleagues on the Department. She served her community well, sadly paying the ultimate price. Her killer deserves the DEATH PENALTY!

My heart breaks seeing this. (Seeing all this sadness of officers killed). What a beautiful woman, what a dedicated soldier to her community and country. RIP Officer, your baby now has an angel watching over him. To her family, God bless you all.

You deserve a funeral and a following of more people than Floyd. You put your life on the line as a military veteran and a police officer. So sad society won’t fight against the injustices done by people and don’t respect those who do enforce order in this world. Thank you for being a good person. Rest In Peace

Way too young to have died. Not only had you stepped up to be a police officer when times are getting tougher for law enforcement, but also a Army veteran. You guarded everything within the limits of your post, now you are relieved. Your brothers and sisters in arms will carry on.
THIS WE'LL DEFEND!

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 whose 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.
