Your heroism and service is honored today, the 120th 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.

The policeman stood and faced his God
Which must alwya come to pass
He hoped his shoes were shining
.Just as brightly as his brass

Step forwad now policwman
How shall I deal with you
Have you always turned the other cheek
To mychurch have you been true

The policeman squared his shoulders
And said "No, Lord I guess I aint"
Because those of us who carry badges
Can't always be a saint

I've had to work most Sundays
And at times my talk was rough
And sometimes I've been violent
Because the streets are awfully tough

But I never took a penny
That wasn't mine to keep
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills just got too steep

And I never passed a cry for help
Though at times I shook with fear
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears

I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear

If you've a place for me here, Lord
It needn't be so grand
I never expected or had too much
But if you don't..........I'll understand

There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod
As the policeman waited quietly
For the judgement of his God

Step forward now policeman
You've borne your burdens well
Come walka beat on heaven's streets
You've done your time in hell
