I just read an article that was beautifully written as many such articles are because they are crafted and designed to engender sympathy for a killer. Your name like so many other victims in such articles was omitted. You and the two others shot and killed were the heroes in that story despite the author's best efforts to make your killer a noble person. She is not. She is a ruthless killer who has made her life easier by being a "model" inmate which really deserves no recognition. Why is it that when inmates obey prison rules they become praise worthy? They are doing what is expected.

My heart aches today for your family because I know both the pain and pride is forever. Be assured that when your killer gets her next parole hearing, I will be writing a letter to the parole board opposing her release. She should die in jail.

On April 7, 2016, I had another opportunity to stand up for you and to be your voice. From behind the scenes, quietly and without public fanfare, I drove to the US Attorney’s Office where I participated in a parole hearing for the inmate who planned the robbery that took your life.

It goes without saying that I opposed parole for this inmate, and now here we are less than a year later with another parole hearing pending for another inmate involved in the robbery thanks to an offensive, unfathomable, irresponsible decision.

It is sickening how a small number of people consider parole for a person who was 31 years old while involved in serial bank robberies, bombings, and ultimately murder, as some sort of second chance when it is not. Nine lives would more accurately represent what parole would be for such a person.

However, thank God for family and friends. They as well as so many others have not forgotten your sacrifice, and most of all they have not forgotten the life you lived. And we thank them for remembering you!

Regardless of the many obstacles I will continue to oppose any early release for anyone involved in your murder.

Rest in Peace Dad.

Went on a few calls with Chip when I was on Clarkstown PD. Very nice person and top notch officer. I responded to the Brinks that day also, could have been me. I am sure you are in a much better place and look forward to meeting you again. Thanks you for all you did whicle on Nyack and for the ultimate sacrifice.

Officer Brown , your killers seek freedom, they seek to be set free to enjoy the same freedoms that took you away from us. What is wrong with this world when the killers of a police officer seek freedom and wish to be put back on the streets. We will do every thing possible to keep them where they belong and seek justice for your senseless murder.

It's been 32 years but the void left by your early departure is still fresh. The friendship and comradarie we had back then meant so much to me. You both are sorely missed. I know you're safe in God's hands. Sleep in peace, Ed and Chip (Wesley).

Your grandchildren are something special, and they are getting to learn more about you. The Sheriff’s mounted unit named a horse for you, what a gesture! It is amazing how your memory continues to be honored by so many. Miss ya Dad.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 28th anniversary 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Though your sacrifice was made years ago, your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace
