Reflections for Detective Thomas T. Cook

Rest in peace Detective Cook. I was wondering if you were related to Metro-Dade Police Officer William C. Cook, EOW-5-16-79. Your honor will be saluted.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 93rd anniversary year 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. Rest In Peace

My Dad worked for the NYC RR for a bunch of years starting when HIS Dad got him a job cleaning cars. He finished up his time there spending 5 years as a Police Officer before leaving to get on my hometown PD. His time on the RR were some of his happiest and he always regretted leaving. With that said, he also related a number of stories that made me cringe. Railroad Police have NEVER had it easy, often working alone and in very dangerous situations; even if there's no crime, there are very big trains that cannot stop quickly.

I have the highest respect for all Railroad Police Officers who go out and do the job day in and day out putting aside the many serious risks they face.

Detective Cook, you are a prime example of what can happen. You did your job, you earned your pay and you are a hero.

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