Reflections for Police Officer James W. Liney

Officer Liney,
On today, the 90th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Army as a member of the 27th “New York” Division in Europe fighting the Germans during World War I.

I said a little prayer today for Police Officer Liney and his family. He may be gone but never forgotten. He will always be a New York HERO.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 80th anniversary year of your death. I am privileged 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.

Rest in peace Brother. Thank you for your service to your community and country. Although the city has much likely changed drastically as time has passed, we serve the same families protected by the same patch. May our work be done in honor of your sacrifice to the community.

We'll take the watch from here.
