Rest in Peace Special Agent Ralph Robinson. Thank You for your Brave Service and Sacrifice protecting America's steel roadways.

90 years have passed since your murder. I am sure that all your loved ones have passed too. So today I will say a prayer for all those departed souls who have so bravely walked into the light.

I also Pray that the hounds of hell forever gnaw at the flesh of your murderers! May they receive no mercy from their pain and suffering!

Detective Robinson, first and foremost, please forgive me for the post I put here that should have been for another fallen hero. Secondly, on this 90th anniversary of your death, I want to again acknowledge your sacrifice and this time THANK YOU for your efforts.

God Bless and Rest in Peace, Brother.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 86th 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 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.

Special Agent Trexler, today marks the 76th anniversary of your tragic death in an automobile accident while in the performance of your duty. I know your job was not an easy or popular job, but the law was there and someone had to enforce it. By taking on such a task, you and those like you proved yourselves heroes.

How tragic it is that we lost so many of you and how especially tragic that on the very day you died in a car accident, another Prohibition Agent on the other side of the country died in the same manner. Today we mourn both Special Agent Trexler and Special Agent William Grubb.

God Bless you both and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brothers.

Detective Robinson, today marks the 83rd anniversary of your murder. You gave your life protecting one of America’s most vital assets, her railroads. Without the men and women of the Railroad Police, there would be untold lawlessness on the rails and hence, our economy would suffer more than it already is. You all are heroes but those who gave all you are especially honored.

The memorial page does not say if the actual suspects were ever caught. Regardless of whether they were or not, I am confident that they face true justice at some point, if not in this life, then in the next.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.
