Reflections for Officer Frederick W. Enright

I'll be thinking about you on June 27th, camping in the Inyo National Forest, Rock Creek campgrounds, Sierra Nevada range, north of Bishop, CA.

Fred, I have missed you, thought of you, and loved you every day of my life. I am so very sad that you did not have the honor to know our daughter, Robyn better before you left us. I did my best for both of us.......I love you so. I WILL see you again one day. I will be forever yours, Sheila

Fred, I was at the cemetery last weekend in Chatsworth, remembering all the good times we had. After many times hunting in the hills above Chatsworth we would usually head straight for the "Munch Box". Your favorite was the mushroom burger. Just before I left the cemetery LAPD's helicopter circled overhead. I think the pilot and observer were also paying their respects to you; a fellow helicopter pilot. You have been in my loving thoughts many times over the years. Your brother-in law, Tim

No fellow California law enforcement personnel killed in the line-of-duty, should be forgotten.

Officer Enright, may Your Soul 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 was one of Fred's training officers at West Valley. Very sharp, nice young man. One of my easiest new officers to train in the field.
