Todays law enforcement officers stand on the shoulders of lawmen such as Ranger Bingham. Such men set the high standard all law enforcement officers today strive to emulate. RIP

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 132nd anniversary year 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

I am not so sure that this was the "last of the Billy the Kid Bunch." There have been many rumors regarding William H. Bonney (Billy the Kid). In 1950, a lawyer named William Morrison located a man in West Texas named Ollie P. Roberts, nicknamed “Brushy Bill,” who claimed to be the actual Billy the Kid, and that he indeed had not been shot and killed by Pat Garrett in 1881.

The town of Hico, Texas (“Brushy Bill's” residence) has capitalized on the Kid's infamy by opening the Billy The Kid Museum. Some of you may be familiar with the Brushy Bill Story, from the movie "Young Guns," starring Kiefer Sutherland, Lou Diamond Phillips, and Emilio Estevez, who played "Brushy Bill".........

Perhaps, we will never know the truth, but regardless - Private Bingham, on this anniversary(sic) of that fateful day, may Your Soul Rest-In-Peace.

Dear Private Bingham,

It has always taken a rare and special type of person to do what you did and other men and women of Law Enforcement do. To choose that career takes passion, committment, honor and courage. You exemplified those personal traits and you gave your life in defeating evil.

You are among fellow heroes in Heaven and are before the very presence of Almighty God. You wore your badge proudly and dear sir, you will never be forgotten.
