W. B. White

Constable W.B. White was shot and killed in Edmonton by a subject whom he had encountered earlier in the day.

The man had been drinking and had an argument with Constable White's brother. Constable White spoke to the man in an attempt to diffuse the situation and the two parted amicably. At approximately 5:00 pm the man encountered Constable White in front of the People's Bank and immediately opened fire, shooting him. Despite being mortally wounded, Constable White returned fire as the man fled.

Constable White had recently been appointed as constable for the Edmonton District.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 111th 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Your sacrifice was made so many years ago. Evil was, is, and will be a part of life just as goodness such as yours will also be present.
