Although I never had the pleasure of knowing Alex, I will never forget his name or face, or about the sacrifice he and everyone who knew him made on that fateful December night. As an new and upcoming employee at the JCPD, I was told his story and introduced to his legacy. He is still very much loved and remembered here, and continues touching lives like my own. Thank you Alex for your bravery in the line of duty, and for your dedication to the agency and the citizens it serves. And my thanks and condolences to all those you left behind. I wish I could have known you.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 8th 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.

I pray for the solace of all those who love and miss you. Both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace

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.

I remember Alex as a detective in the police department, when I was a young and new officer. I just remember how I would be working, late at night, and I would see him come from the back of the department, from the detective's area. He always had a smile for me, and always said hello. He was a genuine person, and it showed. He cared about people, and he loved what he did. I only hope that he has found a place where he can continue to smile and make people feel like they are at home. God bless you, and keep you at peace.

I only worked with Alex for my 6 months at Junction City PD. I will never forget him because he always referred to me as "Ms. Texas" since I came to JCPD from Texas. He always commented on my Texas accent as it is very noticable. He was a great man and I am sorry to hear of his sacrifice. My thoughts and prayers go out to all his family, friends and former coworkers.

I stop by this website often after the death of two dear friends with the NCSHP (Troopers Calvin Taylor E.O.W. October 3, 2001 and Anthony Cogdill E.O.W. May 30, 2003).

We all grieve over the lives lost in the line of duty. I hope you can find some comfort knowing that there are countless prayers that go out for your family.

These are senseless tragedies that never seem to stop. God Bless the men and women who continue to serve their communities in our great Nation.

...Gone, but never Forgotten....
