Reflections for Deputy Sheriff James W. Bell

I was told years ago that we might be related. I would be so proud if we were.
Being a police officer is one of the most dangerous jobs you can have. To you and all your fallen brothers and sisters, I want you to know your sacrifice has not gone unnoticed or in vain. Thank you. R.I.P.

I made a pilgrimage to White Oaks and specifically to the cemetery to visit and pay my respects for Officer Bell. I was immediately struck by the rugged beauty and serenity I found there. Rest in peace and we shall forever honor your service.

Deputy Sheriff James Carlysle, Deputy James W. Bell and Deputy United States Marshal Robert Olinger should never be forgotten for their line of duty deaths. They are truly heros for protecting and serving the people of New Mexico. For Governor Richardson to consider a pardon for the outlaw and murder Billy the Kids is just wrote. Everyone should write Governor Richarson and express their outrage for dishonring these deputies memories.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 128th 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 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.

You were a very good man and didn't deserve what happened to you. However I seem far, I know you very well; as I know your "friends and enemies". You were at the wrong place at the wrong time and I remember you as the guy that tried to be as fair as possible with anybody, with you heart shared between Law and Friendship. You paid it with you live and are one of the most respectfull people that I know of your time.

It is too sad that we remember the name 'Billy the Kid', but not all the names of those who fell victim to him.

It has been a long time since you fell, but your courage is not forgotten. I honor your bravery and sacrifice for the State of New Mexico.
