Reflections for Forest Ranger John Sidney Mott

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 76th anniversary year of your death. I am privilege 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.

Grandpa John - I am the granddaughter that you never got to meet! My dad was your son Robert Mott who only had you in his life for 9 short years! I have 3 children (your great grandchildren) that you also never got to meet! J.T., Jon & Sunnie Dee - you would have loved them! I know that you and I would have had a great relationship as we shared the same passion for horses! You truly are a hero in my eyes and I know that we will meet someday in heaven! I love you!

What is a man's life worth? Does it carry less weight than a technical error? This was a travesty of justice and I hope the murderer who fired the shot suffered in some way the rest of his, assuming he is not alive now. God bless you, Ranger Mott. Thank you for doing a great job and making the world a better place by your example.

Ranger Mott,
It has taken almost 71 years, but you are finally being honored. I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country-not just as a LEO, but also as a Soldier. And I whole heartedly agree with the previous reflection about the scumbags that murdered you.

These four morons murdered a law enforcement officer who was only doing his job after THEY broke the law. They murdered him over a stinking deer. Then, they were allowed to go free. This was a complete miscarriage of justice and I can only hope they faced true justice at some later date, if not in this life, then in the next.

Ranger Mott, you are a hero and I thank you for your service to this nation in both your capacity as a Ranger, but also in your capacity as a Soldier. Those four, whomever they were, are now disgraceful parts of American history, you sir, are an honored part.

God Bless you and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.
