Reflections for Special Patrolman Thomas Sparks

Gang warfare is trivial, childish b.s. and always has been. You were taken from family, friends and colleagues 159 years ago today. You were a pioneer in American Law Enforcement.

God Bless you Brother and may your eternal rest be ever peaceful.

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.
GOD Bless

Your heroism and service is honored today, the one hundred and fifty second 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.
