Deputy Sheriff Thompson was shot and killed while attempting to recapture five prisoners who had escaped from the Easton Jail. As Deputy Thompson and another deputy walked up to a home, belonging to the brother of three of the escapees, the prisoners opened fire, killing Deputy Thompson instantly. The other deputy ran for help and all five were soon recaptured.

The prisoner who killed Deputy Thompson was convicted of his murder and sentenced to 12 years in prison June 9, 1902.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 110th 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.

Yiour family was denied justice as a 12 year sentence for the murder of a law enforcement officer by an escaping prisoner was woefully inadequate.

Rest In Peace
