Deputy Foley, on this 146th anniversary of that tragic event, I thank you for your service. Though you had 'no dog in the fight', or so I believe, you were none-the-less there as a law enforcement officer wondering how it would turn out and hoping to keep the peace no matter what. Again, or so I believe.

How tragic so many law enforcement officers lost their lives and, I note just how many Irish names there are, including yours. I cannot help but wonder just how long most of you had been here before taking on your roles as protectors.

Rest in Peace, Brother and may you and all those who died in this horrific event be forever Blessed by God.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. I am privileged to be the firt to pay tribute to you on this site. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 142nd 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.

Although I am a Southerner by birth, I had never heard of this terrible tragedy.
