Your heroism and service is honored today, the 96th 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.

Rest In Peace.

While doing research on Chief of Police T. B. Wallace I found that he was always known to be a fearless police officer. Chief Wallace could have chosen to stay clear of the incident that lead to his life, but instead he chose to back up his detectives when he learned there had been difficulties with the subject they were attempting to arrest. In true form Chief Wallace responded, even at the cost of his life.

No Officer who gave his life should be without reflection. "For those who pledge to uphold it, freedom requires a sacrifice the protected will never know."
