Agent Ransom,
On today, the 120th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice.

Agent Ransom, yesterday was the 120th anniversary of the incident that eventually took you from your friends and family. A true tragic event that never should have happened and sadly the narrative does not indicate if the scum who caused your death was ever caught. I hope, regardless, he faced true justice for his crimes, be it in this world or the next.

Railroad Police agencies seem to be slowly becoming a thing of the past, which is a travesty, but for all of those who still serve to protect one of the main things that made America what it is today, and for all who preceded them, we, as a nation, owe our thanks.

God Bless, Brother and may you forever Rest in Peace.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 119th 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.
