Agent Robison,
On today, the 33rd anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice as a Law Enforcement Officer. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 24th 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.

Time never dimishes respect. I pray for the solace of your family.

Rest In Peace

Just going thru the internet and happened upon the write-up about your accident and death. That was such a tradegy to our family to loose someone that was so loved by all of us. We miss you terribly and we know that you are watching down on us with Gloria, Mom and Dad.

I love you,

your baby sis Linda

Dear Daddy, Wish you were still here with us, the boys & I have so much we would share with you. I hope you know how proud we were of you and hope that we've made you proud. Your baby girl.

"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.

Agent Robison, today marks the 21st anniversary of your tragic death. Railroad cops are a special breed who often are stuck with the lonely task of checking freight yards and stretches of track that may not see another human for days on end. You perform a task, which is essential to the commerce of America. Whether it’s protecting a boxcar full of air conditioners or a 10-year-old passenger on his way to see a grandparent. Your job is often over looked and taken for granted by the general public because they often forget you’re there. We don’t forget and YOU haven’t been forgotten. Thank you for all your efforts.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.
