It is by unique happenstance that I have just recently learned of the murder of officer John Condon that occured in 1927. Being a police officer back then, especially in the decade of the "roaring twenties" was probably riskier than it is even today. I am glad to know that the memory of officer Condon, as well as other fallen law enforcement officers is honered.

Patrolman Condon,
On today, the 90th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Boston. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

It's an outrage that those responsible for your death did so little time in jail. I can only hope that they faced true justice, if not in this world, then in the next. To think that anyone would turn a simple Disorderly Conduct arrest into a murder is utterly stomach turning, but I know it happens and your death at their hands proves it.

For your service to the Commonwealth, on this 88th anniversary of your death, I thank you. You answered the call and for that, you're a hero. It is so gratifying to see that your family has kept your memory alive. God Bless them for it.

And God Bless you as well, Brother, may your eternal rest remain peaceful.

I grew up always hearing your life, your daughter was my mom. Both myself and your grandson Dennis were present when your name was read in Washington DC. That is a memory that we will always have. You were taken too soon.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 86th anniversary year of your death. I am privileged 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.
