Reflections for Patrolman James Golden

Though your killer was never brought to justice here, on this 120th anniversary rest assured he faced a higher justice at a different time in a different place. Rest in peace knowing that no passage of time will ever erase your service and sacrifice.

Patrolman Golden,
On today, the 116th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Dunmore Borough.

Patrolman Golden,
Sir, it has taken almost 116 years but you are finally being honored. I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Dunmoore Borough. It angers me that the Lackawanna County Commissioners didn't live up to their sworn duties the way you lived up to yours.

Patrolman Golden, today marks the 116 anniversary of your murder. How filthy is a creature that he would risk facing a murder conviction to avoid a rather minor infraction like fighting? First off, I hope the brother faced charges, was convicted and did a lot of time.

Second, I hope the scum who murdered you (and apparently had a history) faced true justice, if not in this life, then in the next.

God Bless you, Hero, and I hope and pray your rest has been and always will be, peaceful.
