Your heroism and service is honored today, the 22nd 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never dimishes respect, and your memory will always be honored and revered. I pray for the solace of all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heat's embrace today.

Rest In Peace

"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.

A horrid and tragic loss occurred that day in 1990. Though your position on the job may have been filled with a new officer, you can never be replaced, especially not to those who knew and loved you and had the honor to work with you.

Rest in Peace and God Bless you.

I first met Phil Stabile while attending security and firearms training in the 1970s. He had a straight forward approach and had a personality you couldn't forget - a sense of humor delivered with that great New York accent made the class a fun experience. As an NRA cert. firearms instructor, safety was the at its highest and I appreciated all the pointers he passed on to the students. I kept in touch with him at the college through the 1980s,but lost contact when I moved away from the area. I am shocked to find this listing as I happened to visit this wesite by chance. I hold good memories of this man.

WHEN I WAS FIRST HIRE AS A CASUAL OFFICER AT LBCC-PCC, PHIL WAS MY SUPERVISOR AND MENTOR.
TO LEARN OF HIS DEATH HAS SADDENED ME GREATLY.
I OFTEN REFLECT BACK ON THOSE DAYS, REMEMBERING THOSE WHO TAUGHT ME, WHAT IT WAS LIKE TO BE A COP, A MAN, AND CENTURION. TO PHILS FAMILY: LET THERE BE PEACE IN YOUR HEARTS, BECAUSE A GREAT MAN FELL DOING WHAT HE LOVED, AND MAY GOD REST HIS SOUL, I'LL SEE YA SOMEDAY PAL...
