Not forgotten

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.

Well said Ms. Robertson, history has a way of immortalizing vicious killers yet brave officers are too often forgotten.
RIP Deputy Marshal, I will always remember your bravery.

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.
