Reflections for Constable James J. Bobbitt

Once again Constable Bobbit I find myself reflecting on the crime perpetrated against you and the light sentence that scum Pugh received! I know there is a God and he has sought retribution for your loss. May Pugh forever feel the flames of the lake of fire searing his soul.

Rest in Peace Constable James J. Bobbitt. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice Protecting the citizens of Houston County, Texas.

I Pray for Peace for your Family, Friends and Co-Workers. I also Pray that John Pugh burns in hell for eternity. May the hounds of hell forever gnaw at his bones.

Darrell Bobbit has been Sheriff of Houston Co. since about 2000; he is a great Sheriff and I am sure a descendant of this fine officer. He is doing you proud Sir.

Heroes live forever, Constable Bobbitt, and we will never forget. Thank you for the sacrifice you made for the citizens of Houston County and the great State of Texas.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 106th 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 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. You and your family did not receive the full measure of justice as five years was a woefully inadequate sentence, but your murderer had to answer to God.

Rest In Peace.

Constable Bobbitt,
It has taken over 98 years, but you are finally being honored. I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Houston County. I think it was a travesty of justice that your murderer was only sentenced to five years in prison.
