Officer Adams,
On today, the 125th 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 Columbus.

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

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 113th 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.

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. Historically, I preferred a time where an execution didn't take place decades after the sentence was rendered.

Rest In Peace
