Officer Baty,
On today, the 50th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-snot just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

You were my fiancee and the love of my life. We planned to be married on December 31..I think of you every day and will never forget you. You were a a wonderful person who loved being a police officer and protecting the people. My life has continued but still feels empty without you.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 42nd 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. Rest In Peace.

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.

Brother Baty,

May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
And the rains fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

You’re Brothers in Blue

It is beyond me how your age, badge number, and tour of duty are not known. This is such a recent murder compared to some on this site. It seems your community has somehow forgotten you, Officer Baty. Thanks to this awesome site, your life will never be forgotten. Thank you for your service to your community.

Officer Baty,
On today, the 35th anniversary of your murder, I would like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Atlanta.
