Doug, you crossed my mind today. You are one very missed friend that I could talk to about anything and never be judged. We all had some great times together working EMS at Porter or hanging at your home while we all sang country music. It's hard to believe it's been so long but you will always be remembered as a great person.

Thank you for your heroism.

God Bless

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 29th 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.

I pray for solace for all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace. Thanks to your friends for sharing their memories and devotion to you through their reflections.

Rest In Peace.

It's taken me awhile to make up my mind to do this, but I finally found the words I was looking for. Doug, you were my dad's best friend. You looked out for each other, and took care of each other. He always talks to me about the "good times" when you rode together and caught the "bad guys". I can still see it in him when he sees a LEO run hot. He remembers it, and it burns him up inside because it's what took you from all of us. Being a cop was more than just wearing a badge and carrying a gun. It was about looking out for others in a way that no other man could. It was about loyalty, bravery, and a stiff upper lip to those who would do wrong. It was about running 101 to the man who called for your help, your brother. That's what it meant to be a cop, a LEO. That's what you were. Even though you're gone he will never forget you. We'll never forget you, Doug.

Rest in peace, my friend. We love you and miss you.

I found this page to remember you by, Doug, but it's taken a long time for me to make up my mind to do it. I know what a good friend you were to my dad. He misses you so much. We miss you so much. I always hear him talk about the "good times" when you two rode side saddle together rounding up the "bad guys". He misses it more than ever at night when he sees a LEO running hot. It burns him inside because he knows thats what took you away from all of us. We won't forget you though. We'll never forget you Doug.

Doug, its been another year, the time goes fast. We miss you, you still come up in our conversations all the time. We were on a drug raid a while back and the guys got a good laugh when I told them about the night we put the caged rattle snakes in the back of your patrol car that we had borrowed from the forest ranger and how fast you jumped out of the vehicle when you heard them all rattling. RIP good friend.

"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.
