Thank you sir for your service, now and days it is not easy being a auxiliary police officer in new york but did you know I never knew who u was. Today I had to go to auxiliary headquarters for something and I looked on the wall of all the auxiliary police officers that had lost there lives while on duty. There shield were monumented together with a few beautiful words. I felt a broken to hear about all of u.then I decided to look up one of you on google.I picked your name first and I was again even more broken to see what happened. You may or may not ever see this comment but I salute you sgt. You are in a beautiful place. Leave the rest to me and the rest of the nypd officers. Thank you sir once again

Your sacrifice is not forgotten.

I posted an inaccurate eow date on my previous recollection. Today is actually the twenty-third anniversary of your death and I am sure you have been sorely missed each of those years.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 21rst 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect, and your memory will always be honored and revered.

I pray for the solace of all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace today.

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.

We must all die. To die doing good is the best we can hope for. I look at this man's face and I am so sad for the people he left behind, and for the years he should have had. What a tragedy. What a pity people like him have to die for others' transgressions.


October 20, 2007

On this 18th anniversary of your tragic death, I simply wish to say thank you. Your volunteer efforts on behalf of the citizens of NYC have not been forgotten as is proven by your remembrance on this wonderful website.

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

Both of you died heroes. I was living in NYC when this tragic loss occurred. My dad was a Sergeant in the 72pct. God bless my brothers in blue.
