Reflections for Special Agent Conway Charles LeBleu

High school friend and teammate and fellow LEO. I was a year ahead of you. I know that as teammates, you looked up to me. In hindsight our relationship as teammates meant very little in the scheme of things. It was really our friendship that meant something. I remember hearing after I left Lake Charles for my Air Force career that I heard you were going to become a federal agent. I remember thinking that it was a great choice for you, and I knew you'd be a great cop. I had no idea that you'd be a hero, gone from us way too soon. And so now it is me, looking up to you. Thank you for your service to the nation. I met your supervisor at a terrorism course I attended at Fort Leonard Wood, MO. We talked about you. We cried. He still has your picture in his wallet. He's proud of you. So am I. We all are, Conway.

"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.

Conway, I finally had a chance to go out and see the compound. There is a very nice memorial to the BD members right inside their property. There is NOTHING in sight for you, the other officers that gave their lives that day or those wounded. That irritates me. You paid the ultimate price. You are a hero. I guess most people forget in time. Some of us haven't....and won't. Miss you my friend...

On this the anniversary of your passing, we pause to remember. Rest in peace job well done, you may be gone but know you will never be forgotten.

Agent LeBleu, today marks the 14th anniversary of your murder at the hands of a group of social misfits. You attempted to serve a lawful court order and met with fierce gunfire. The ONLY persons responsible for the deaths of you and your fellow agents were those people inside that compound and they were the ONLY ones responsible for their ultimate demise. You and your fellow ATF agents are heroes for the risks you took in doing what had to be done.

My cousin is currently an Agent with the ATF and I’m very proud of him and can only say, the ATF has my total respect and I curse those who try to take the blame away from David Koresh and his collection of lunatics for what ultimately happened in Waco and place it on the men and women who were simply doing their jobs, you included Agent LeBleu.

God Bless you and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.
