Your heroism and service is honored today, the sixth 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.

Officer Bryant,
On today, the 6th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of the state of Kentucky. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. And I have to agree with some of the previous reflections-how could that piece of scum that killed you only be sentenced to 2 years?

"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.

Doug and I were classmates at the Police Academy (Class 212) in the spring of 1992. Doug was a good person and full of good humor. Doug and I met again during an in-service class in Louisville in 2002; he still had that great sense of humor. Doug and I often ate lunch together that week of class in Louisville. He often spoke of his daughter and the joy he got in riding his motorcycles. To his family you have my deepest sympathy and hope that these messages bring you comfort. To Doug, I hope we can ride our bikes together someday. Gods Speed my friend

AS A NORTHERN KY. OFFICER I MET DOUG ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO, HE WAS A SUPER NICE FELLOW AND EVEN THOUGH I DIDN'T SEE HIM VERY OFTEN, I CONSIDERED HIM A FRIEND. THANKS FOR YOUR DEDICATION AND PROFFESSIONALISM TO YOUR JOB DOUG, YOU WILL BE MISSED BY ALL US.

My condolences to Conservation Officer Bryant's family, friends, and co-workers. I never knew him, but feel the pain of the loss all the same. Thanks for your dedication to the people of KY and its natural resources. You will not be forgotten.

Soon the black band around my badge will come off. Not seeing Doug anymore around town or on the river will be a reminder about what protecting the public is all about. We risk our lives to protect the public. We know it when we get up, kiss our spouse and kids then head off to work. It takes a special person to work in public safty and Doug was one of the finest. GODSPEED my friend.

Doug was a fellow offficer and a friend. We did not work in the same area of the state together but I have known him since he started with the state. We used to go to training together. He was a great husband, father, law enforcemet officer and a true friend. I will miss him.

Doug was always at numerous youth events in Northern Kentucky. He was an inspiration to the children and instilled in them a love of the outdoors. He will be sorely missed by the sportsmen and women of Northern Ky, but especially by the kids.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
