I went to school with Steven. He was always the kind of person that you were honored to call "friend". He was a great person and an even greater friend.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 11th 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 who love and miss you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace.

As a police officer's son, my dad who served the citizens of NYC for parts of five decades and was the top cop in NYC and was very dedicated, I find it appalling sir or madam, how you and your grand jury, could let such a tragedy, go unpunished. A person rams a police vehicle, the vehicle burns and an innocent man protecting your citizens is taken from this world. I am not a lawyer, a clergyman yes. He was a husband, a dad, a fine human being. What has become of our justice system? What happened to vehicular homicide, voluntary or involuntary manslaughter? I very much welcome after all these years a rational, lucid and legally logical reply.

Thank you for your service to us. I lived in Madison a few years ago and I heard about your death while I was there. You are not forgotten!

"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.

My Brother"

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was idealistic and believed he could make a difference.
He was immensely proud of the uniform and the badge and what they represent.
He felt privileged to be of service to his department, his community and to his country.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was friendly, courteous, and polite, yet firm.
He laughed and joked, but was serious when necessary.
He was competent, trained, and professional.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He had a strong sense of right and wrong and became
frustrated when true justice became sidetracked.
He felt the sharp criticism that goes with the job, but he
never wavered.
He stood by and for his fellow officers.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He longed for his family during the long hours.
He worried about them during his shifts and the lonely
weekends, holidays and midnights when they were apart.
He felt guilty about the lost time, but knew his calling
and prayed they would understand.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was a good son, a loving husband, and a devoted father.
He was dedicated to the profession and cared about the
people he served.
He wanted to do the best job that he could and strived to
be the best he could be.
He was a good citizen and a good neighbor.

He was a cop.

Yes, I did know him.
He was a cop, he was my Brother.

Rest In Peace Brother! We have the watch...

Steve: I can't believe that its coming up on 8 years since you have been gone from us. You were a great person and served the citizens of Madison County well.

I pray that I will see you again one day on the other side.

Wanted to let you know that you are missed by everyone who knew you. You inspired those you met by the way you did your job, serving the people of Madison County. Several of the SO guys meet yearly at that spot on the Interstate where you made that ultimate sacrifice and hold a memorial service. We all know that you are with us in spitit. I talk frequently with your brothers, talking of the fun times and and not so fun times when ya'll were growing up. I know they miss you too. They reflect on how you inspired and guided them to become responsible adults.

It seems like only yesterday when I was riding around the county with you. You taught me so much and inspired me to pursue a career in law enforcement. I hope to be serving the citizens of Madison County soon. I hope I can be half the deputy you were. I think of the crazy times we had at the lake with Andrews and the whole gang. I know that you are looking over all of us and get wait until we can "patrol the streets of Heaven" together. RIP MC-23...

A year has passed and it seems like only yesterday when I received word of your passing. I have thought many times over the last year of you and our times on duty, both humerous times and sad. I wonder why no one from MCSO has written anything here, but am not their judge. I will wait for the day that I get to see you again with fond memories.

I will treasure the memories and wish you a peaceful rest.

Until the final homecoming, I am always your friend.

Chief Michael Price
White Springs PD.


I love you and I miss you.  I know you are watching out for me. I will always keep you in my heart. I missed you on my 6th birthday but you were in my thoughts. Your birthday just past .I watch our home movies of you and me all the time. I like the part of you in your police car.

I think of you everyday. I hope that I will always make you proud of me.
