Reflections for Special Deputy Sheriff Larry Lee Mulkey

I knew Larry Mulkey from the Forsyth County HS Band. He was a great kid and his death was a tragedy. Just a kid riding with the deputy. Classic wrong place, wrong time.

My sister dated Larry in High School. As a little sister, I thought he was so cool, and I am sure he tolerated me, but I loved him. I remember this day as if it happened this morning, not 40 years ago. I also went to school with Officer Cantrell's son Allen. These were special men who wanted to help and serve the citizens of Forsyth County. Today they are still thought of as the great men they were, and are missed by those who knew them...

Without a doubt, Larry was the best friend I ever had. I have lots of wonderful memories of our days in band and throughout high school. My heart is still very heavy from the loss of one who had so much to give and who was filled with so much compassion and talent. "Go Rest High on that Mountain, Son, your work on earth is done." I love you!

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 40th 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 who was murdered in the the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory 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.

Larry and I were good friends and classmates at Forsyth County High. We spent many hours at his parents’ home singing while Larry played his guitar. He was an only child and his parents loved him so very much. It was a difficult time when they lost him. Some forty years later, he is still missed.

"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.

Your memorial came up today on "WE REMEMBER". I grew up and still live in Forsyth Co. I was ten years old when this happened and remember it very well and pass by the place where it happened often. You will always be remembered for your bravery and courage. Thank you for protecting the county that we both grew up in.
