Reflections for Patrolman Charles H. Perrine

My name is James Byrd. Charles was my Grandpa's brother. They were both LEO's so was my Dad. I even tried it for a year as a DS. They are all gone now. God l miss them. Back then its wasnt just a job it was a life style, an honor people looked up to. Wish it was that way today.

Patrolman Perrine,
On today, the 69th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you to you and your fellow Officers who were also killed in that incident for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Kansas City. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

I only know you through pictures in a scrapbook my grandmother kept, but you are a hero to me!

Rest in Peace...

How sad that this public servant had to pay with his life for his dedication to his duty to serve and protect. My condolences to his family whom I'm sure has not forgotten and of course to his law enforcement family. Rest in peace.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the sixty-first 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.

Rest In Peace

What an absolute tragedy at the hands of two cowards. Your bravery and courage are nothing short of spectacular and you will never, ever be forgotten as you rest in peace always.
