Reflections for Special Officer Charles Sherman Patterson

Rest In Peace Brother LEO. Gone, but not forgotten.

Special Officer Patterson, your death while in the line of duty is tragic, plain and simple. Had the hobo not run, you would not have given chase. Had you not give chase, the terrible accident would never have occurred. It happens. We can only hope that the hobo learned something from the event and if not convicted of a crime, found natural history elsewhere.

You are a hero and may God Bless you and may your extended and eternal rest be peaceful, Brother.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 92nd anniversary year of your death. I am priviliged to be among the first to leave a tribute to you. 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.
