Otho Munger was my grandfather. So honored that he is on this site. Thank you.
And thank you to all the officers remembered here.
Had never heard all the details of his death. My father was so young I don't think he ever got all the details.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 125th 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.

It sounds like the murder site was chosen specifically so that a defense of no jurisdiction could be made. Such a travesty of justice.
