Reflections for Reserve Deputy Fred Feuser, Jr.

I was a young man when Fred and Billy were shot. I remember trying to go to sleep while the choppers circled the lake, searching for the guilty parties. There was really nothing we could do to make it better. My thoughts are with Bill and Freds families, for all of my life.

I worked with Fred. He was a good man. I remember him telling me "if you learn nothing else from me, I want you to remember the letters CYA!" Cover Your Ass no matter what the situation small or large. At this time I'm a supervisor and a Field Training Officer for the Camden County Sheriff's Office and I pass on this message on a daily basis. Fred will never be forgotten.

My father was taken from us, on the property of the 4 Season's. He had retired from Military Duty, and became a Security Guard for the 4 Season's. His new career was the working as a Police Officer. It is there that he was killed, when dressed for Duty as a Reserve Police Officer, and a his friend you fireman and father. The Four Season's paid my Mother a pension till her death a few years later!

I new you from a young teenager. I can say you were the kindest Man I have ever known. My children never really got to know you. I feel so cheated, that you were taken from us. I can never find a reason why this had to happen. You died, and soon my Mom! Those are broken years. my heart, that is. Here is something makes my heart sing. At the time it didn't. Your Sgt Cami Yoder, is now serving, and soon to start Nursing school. You are a Great Grandfather as well. It comforts me to know you are by our sides, and with the one you married Darlene.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 15th 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. Both the pain and pride are forever. I am sure you are proud that your family is carrying on your legacy of protecting and serving.

Rest In Peace

One day after the 14th anniversary of Reserve Deputy Feuser's death, we honored his service in our patrol briefing by reading his entry from ODMP. Each day, we honor one fallen officer on the anniversary of their death so as to keep them in our thoughts, and also to remind us of the dangers inherent in our job. Reserve Deputy Feuser is not forgotten.

"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.
