Reflections for Night Watchman Charles Washington Newsom

This is my great-great grandfather on my mothers side. Had no idea about the tragic nature of his death, until recently. I hope he found peace.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the ninety-first 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.

Rest In Peace

I am proud to be among the first to leave a reflection honoring you, sir. Thank you for your bravery, dedication, service and sacrifice. It has taken over 97 years to have your name added to the long, tragic and sad list of LEO's who have died in the line of duty. May your loved ones find solace in the fact that you will FOREVER be a hero and will NEVER again be forgotten!
