Reflections for Officer Alan Frederick Chick

Alan and I were room mates at the University of Texas. I wound up with Dallas PD while he hired on with Ft Worth PD. He was about the best friend you could ever have, a great athlete, and a very good cop. I still think of him often. Never forget.

Officer Chick,
On today, the 25th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Fort Worth. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

To Alan's family,

I have no idea whether you will receive this, but I wanted to try, and this was the only way I could find to contact you.

While cleaning out some old boxes, this weekend, I came across a picture of Alan, from the Summer before his senior year in high school. It's a lovely candid portrait, showing his beautiful smile. I thought you might want to have it, and would be happy to send it along, if you do. He was a beautiful young man, and though we lost touch after that Summer, I know he grew into an equally wonderful adult.

My Mom was recently visiting and I thought about Alan Chick who I knew when I was in high school. He was older than I was but we had a innocent connection and were running partners for a bit. He was a support for me when I did not even know I needed one. I often wondered if he understood my life better than myself. I am sad he has missed his children growing up and his life. He was an amazing human being.

A "No Parole" letter for the thug that killed you has been sent. You will never be forgotten!

Seriously, 19 year sentence! What happened to life in prison. I don't always send out a letter to the parole board but this one is going in the mail today and in my own words. I strongly disagree with 19 years after 22 prior arrests and 8 DUI convictions!

My letter to the parole board to not even think about giving the drunk driver that took the life of Officer Alan Frederick Chick went into the mail today. This man has shown that he has no regard for anyone on the road and will be back driving under the influence again as soon as he is ever put back on the street. God Bless Your Family. Rest in Peace Brother Chick.

You are on everyone's thoughts this week as they are possibly paroling the man who put this void in the lives of the Chick Family...I am watching and praying as everyone rallies to prevent this from happening. I think you would be proud and hopeful that this is what helps to bring this family back together but most of all I hope we are able to bring you the justice and respect that you and the family deserves. You are loved and missed.

Alan and I grew up together in grade school and later worked together at Kinney Shoes at Ridgmar Mall. I remember him as an energetic and motivated person. Our prayers continue to be with the family.

Sometimes I wonder what life would have been like if you hadn't gone to work that day. I miss you even if I don't remember you.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the sixteenth 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.

I pray for the solace of all those who love and miss you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace

Alan -
Today the City of Fort Worth did you and all it's Fallen Heroes proud by dedicating a beautiful memorial in Trinity Park. The scars were too deep for Mom to come to the service today, but I will bring her by soon. We love and miss you.

Though fifteen years have passed, neither your memory nor your service have dimmed. Thank you, Officer Chick, for making the world a better place for me and countless others to live. I said a prayer for your family and all the other loved ones you left behind.

"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.
