Jailer Sloan was shot and killed while attempting to prevent a prisoner from being taken from the Calcasieu Parish Jail by an angry mob. The mob had battered down the jail's front door using a large pipe.

Fearing for their lives, the deputies on the inside of the jail opened fire on the mob. Several members of the mob then returned fire, fatally wounding Jailer Sloan.

Several leaders of the mob were arrested and charged with Jailer Sloan's murder.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. I am privileged to pay tribute to you. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 113th anniversary year 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 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.

Rest In Peace.
