Your heroism and service is honored today, the 20th 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.

Officer Warren Sanders,
Though we've never met I feel compelled to relay these words for you, your family, & fellow retired partner Officer Clark. I read the Victim's Advocate newspaper today (December 2009) and was immediately drawn to the words that were wriiten about the day you exited this life, in exchange to live a lifetime among the angels. Before I it knew my face was streaked with tears, and I couldn't understand why right away. I now have clarity. I was saddened upon the realization that you weren't the only one who died after putting up such a brave fight in the line of duty that day...a huge part of Officer Clark went with you. When the FOP acknowledged your unselfish contribution to maintaining the safety of our city on 5 August 1990, and laid you to rest, unbeknowest to anyone at that time, Officer Clark was buried right beside you. Although it's been almost two decades, he still harbors so much pain both mentally as well as physically. It's so obvious to anyone who read that article how much your partner loves and misses you. I too am sad that I never had the chance to meet you and simply thank you and all the other brothers in blue who've lost their lives in the pursuit of safety and justice in our community. Officer Sanders I THANK YOU for choosing a career path that may have saved hundreds of lives (including my own). I'm eternally grateful for the ultimate sacrifice that you made. It is my prayer that through your family and friends your memory will remain alive and vibrant. I know you're looking down on them still ever watchful trying to keep them safe. If you can, it would be wonderful if you could somehow ease the mental anguish that Officer Clark suffers from daily due to your demise. I suspect he may have quite a bit of guilt to work through still. Embrace him just a little tighter, and let him know that you've forgiven him, and now he needs to do the same for himself. May you rest in peace and find comfort in knowing that your memory will be forever embedded in the hearts of your loved ones.
Humbly Submitted,
-LLY

Warren, I have always known you to be a good person,loving man but unfortunately I was not able to see you or talk to you before the good Lord called you home, God knows best even though we asked "Why" we will never know the answer. You will always be in our hearts and be remembered by those who loved you before and even after you've been gone for a long time. Warren, rest peacefully in the arms of the father till we meet again.

The Badge"
He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.
He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.
Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.
He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.
His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.
He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.
And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.
But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.
Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.
Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.
So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.
In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.
Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

I'm so sad that you had to go,I can hear you say don't worry buddy,"I KNOW". My life has been a perpetual rainy day since your End of Watch, I want you to know good buddy,I think of you a lot. I Pledge to do all I can to keep your memory alive, I visited your grave site just the other day. I pulled weed from around your headstone and threw them away. Just before I left I said a little prayer I asked the lord to help me as I travel along this way,to one day have a memorial just dedicated to you.
