Reflections for Sergeant G. J. Jordon

I was saddened when I learned of Officer Jordan’s passing. He was a good police officer. One of the best. I lived in Shelbyville back in the late 80s to ‘93. I worked at Cone Oil on North Main. Officer Jordan and Officer Rufus always made sure I was safe. I sincerely appreciated them both. Officer Jordan always had a smile on his face.

I met your son today when he came by the hospital to take a report from me as I was bitten by a stray dog. Your son was very professional. He mentioned that you were taken away from us in the line of duty. I just wanted to let you know that in the short time that I spent with your son, I knew enough to know that he was raised right. You have two grand children as well. I know that you are proud of your son, and he is proud of you and his grandpa as well. Thank you for your service, sir. God bless you and your family.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 17th 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 dimishes respect and you will always be honored and revered. I pray for solace for all those who love and miss you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

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.

On 8-27-07 I met your son while on duty in Chattanoga TN. After speaking for awhile we got to talking about how his dad got killed in a line of duty. Your son would make you very proud. Thank you for the ultimate sacrifice.

G.J.,I still laugh at the way you and I met,I was working in a neighboring county and you were off duty in your old pick-up truck going to get cattle feed.I pulled you over for the expired tag and you had the current sticker laying in the seat.You finally told me that you were an Officer.We kind of hit it off and then I came to Shelbyville and road with you on patrol one night.We responded to a bar fight and it was so crowed,I told you,"man your going to get me killed in here"!I miss seeing you around G.J. and when I found out about the accident I was very upset. Every time I come through and I pass by that intersection,I think about you.I know you are in a better place now and I bet you are still taking care of those cows.You were a good friend and good person!
