RIP, Officer George Howard Hall will never ever be forgotten.

Young officer, we are the same age. I chose another line of work but my son became a police officer. They still are breaking in cars, young men are still risking their lives, everyday. Your killer is still alive but still paying for what he did to you. I'm so sorry for short life but have the utmost respect for you and your calling to service. You would not recognize the place now, but that wouldn't matter, I know you would still protect us the best you could... Salute brave sir. It is an honor to be reminded of your outstanding service to our city and nation. May the Peace of Jesus be with you forever.

It was 42 yrs ago today that you lost your life. A routine call, the ultimate sacrifice. It wasn't fair you died too soon, a young officer, a career that had begun but your death tore life pages all away. Officer George Hall, thank you for your service to Nashville, you'll never be forgotten. Rest In Peace.

Officer Hall,
Thank you for your dedicated services and your courage to lay your life on the line to protect and serve as a Peace Officer. Its brings me deep sadness that you never got the chance to see your daughter grow up and have a family of her own. I have a 13 and a half month old son. I have high intentions to become a Police Officer one day, there is a high fear of not being able to come home one day. Even as a Security Officer now, there is a chance that once I leave my house in uniform to go to work, that I may not be returning back home. I hope that you have found peace and that NO PAROLE FOR COP KILLERS will do the job and not release the "KID" responsable for your homicide.

Your Memorial Page was posted on several Metro/Nashville Police Dept.'s Social Media sites and a countless number of 'NO parole' letters were forwarded to the TN Parole Board; and your murderer, was once again, denied parole. You Are Not Forgotten.

I will never forget the initial feeling of losing GEorge in such a senseless manner. He was the sweetest man and I've often thought of his wife and then new baby. One of the saddest experiences.

I left you a reflection a few years ago but mistakenly put an inaccurate eow date. Today is the 36th anniversary of your death, and I am sure you have been missed each of those days. Rest In Peace.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 133rd 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.

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.
