As I watched "women on death row" I also felt compelled to come here and leave you a reflection. I thank you for your courage and honor to this country. You will never be forgotten.

As I watched "Women on Death Row" I felt compelled to come here and leave a note. It must be incredibly difficult for your loved ones as the time passes and fewer people remember you. You can add me to that list now. I salute you, Trooper Davis. Not for how you died, but for how you lived. Your son describes you as his best friend, others who know you recall you from being at little league games..... I pray your family has felt and will continue to feel your presence in the years since you left this life. I will remember you.

It is terrible that the state of NC is thinking of letting your killer loose because they think she has served her life sentence. This is wrong if you can not come back to work then she need not get out of jail.
Patrolman Davis we are still working hard rest in peace.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 34th 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 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.

Rest In Peace.

"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.

I often check and read the ODMP. Not only it is a way to ground yourself and remember the past, but a way to honor our brothers who came long before us. I have been a police officer for nearly ten years now and not a minute goes by that I don't think about those who have given the ultimate to ensure that our communities are safe and something worthy of passing along to our children. Today I searched and found Patrolman Davis Jr. This HERO was tragically murdered on the very day before I was born. Although decades apart and miles away, we are all brothers. May your family find peace and comfort knowing that so many of your brothers are with them always in thought and prayer. And patrolman Davis Jr., may you find comfort knowing that we are all carrying on the torch and continuing what you started. Rest in peace sir and I look forward to meeting you in the future.

I remember Trooper Davis as a very kind man who loved all people, black or white. As a child I grew up very poor with hardly anything to eat. This was around 1969- 1970. Trooper Davis had just locked up my grandfather for an offense. He, Trooper Davis, having known that my Grandfather was the only bread winner in the household, came to our home later, in his patrol vehicle, got out and opened the trunk of his cruiser and took out three bags of groceries and placed them on the porch. He then left without saying a word. This is what type of man he was. He was not about a lot of words, but was more about action. May God forever bless Trooper Tom Davis soul and his family. If any one is in Heaven, Trooper Davis has his place there. God Bless you Trooper Davis and thanks for what you did for my family.

Tom was the first State Trooper that I knew. I grew up knowing and respecting him and later was fortunate to work in the same troop with him. Tom was loved and respected by everyone in the county where he worked and gave his life for what he believed in. Tom left a great family behind and the respect of everyone he worked with and for. God bless you and rest in peace my brother.
