This man is my husband's grandfather. When Detective Knight was killed, his wife was pregnant with their son who would grow to become my husband's father. We have always known the story but never saw nor read any official accounts until my daughter, Knight's great-granddaughter, found it online today. We are awed and humbled to receive this after almost 100 years.

Det. Knight,
Sir, it has taken over 87 years but you are finally being honored. I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice as a Law Enforcement Officer.

How sad and infuriating that you were murdered by someone who merely had to leave when told to. What eventually happened to those three meaningless creatures is not mentioned above, but we can only hope they faced true justice, if not in this life, then in the next.

You lost your life protecting America's railroads and that makes you a real hero. It is tragic that the job of Railroad Police Office is not nearly as prevalent today as it once was. It is people like you that keep the rails safe and in this day and age, that is as important a job as it ever was.

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

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 87th 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.
