Captain Lee, riots never accomplish anything but destruction and injuries and death. How tragic that your life was taken by those who, believing their cause was just, were unjust in their actions. You are now and forever will be a hero.

God Bless and I pray you remain resting eternally, Brother.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 94th 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.

Rest In Peace.
