Constable Robert Long was shot and killed in retaliation for his work against several criminals.

He had obtained warrants for the men but had not yet served them. The subjects kicked his door in as he and his wife were sleeping and shot them both. Constable Long was shot 14 times and killed. His wife was wounded but survived.

The subjects were arrested four days later.

We cannot fully honor our heroes of the present without paying tribute to our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 127th 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.
