Reflections for Police Officer Harold Hamilton

 

RIP Uncle Harold. 47 years since you have been gone. I never got to meet you but I hear such wonderful things about you from my dad ( your little brother, Sam ) I have the highest respect for anyone who is in this line of work and am so proud of my SFPD and law enforcement Family. May you rest in peace. Your sacrifice is not forgotten. We love you.

I'm not sure why, but I have been thinking a lot about Officer Hamilton lately. I was a student at St. Brendan's with his children (though none were in my class) and I still have a vivid memory of them being called out of class by the Principal and hearing the news. The kids lived right up the street from me and we would play together sometimes. I don't remember playing much after the death of their father. And I remember the bomb blast as well. Until recently, when I looked it up again, I thought I had imagined it. Officer Hamilton was a hero, no question. And over time and many years, you still live on in the many people your life touched and the lives your children touch. Rest in Peace, brave Hero and Thank you.

I now they are very proud of you and I am sure you are very proud of them. Rest in peace fallen Hero.

Dad,

I grew up hearing some great stories about you. I'm sorry that's all I ever had. But I do find some comfort knowing that you are looking down on us and hopefully smiling. Love you Dad.

I was one of the funeral detail sent by my department to honor Officer Hamilton at his funeral service. We stood at attention on the lawn in front of the church. There was a loud and powerful explosion that knocked most of us to the ground when the bomb detonated. We were stunned by the lack of respect for the slain officer and his family. Someone said "my God they won't even let him rest in peace." My hearing loss restored, but I've never forgotten.

Rest in Peace, Officer Hamilton. Your sacrifice is not forgotten.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 39th 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.

I had never heard of the incident about a bomb being planted outside your funeral. How disgraceful...a truly savage act that must have exacerbated the grief of your already devasted family and department.

I hope to one day meet your family at a NORCAL COPS meeting.

Rest In Peace

Though I never knew him, he was part of my Law Enforcement family and I will mourn this deep loss the rest of my life. My heart aches with all the losses we have suffered, and continue to suffer, through the years. God is our only peace in such incidents & our only real comfort comes from Him. May His strength, comfort & peace continue to be the sustaining force in the lives of all who knew this beloved officer; and may it somehow help to know he is not forgotten.

Officer Hamilton, yesterday marked the 36th anniversary of your murder at the hands of some misguided barbarians. I can only hope they faced true justice in the next world since none seemed to face it in this one.

Your efforts on behalf of the citizens of San Francisco and all peaceful innocent people have not been forgotten. I know in my heart that, though you were taken from this world bodily, you never left your family.

God Bless you and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.

THANKS AND PRAISE,
FOR OUR DAYS,
'NEATH THE SUN, 'NEATH THE STARS, 'NEATH THE SKY,
AS WE GO, THIS WE KNOW,
GOD IS NIGH.
