Reflections for Policeman Warren Gamel Chamberlain

This incident was especially tragic as it happened on Christmas Day. My grandfathers name was Mack Toner & he was a policeman working for LAPD back then. My mom who is 91 years young can still remember being in the car with her brother & father (Mack Toner) & driving by the accident. My grandfather got out of the car & asked the other cops if he could assist & was told of the tragedy. My mom told me it really ruined Christmas for the whole family. From the information I could gather the department was short handed because of the war & officer Chamberlain was asked to work on a day off when the incident occurred. Officer Chamberlain never made it home that day or any other day. Officer Chamberlain was doing his job, on his day off making the world safer for all of us when he was taken at a young age. May god bless the Chamberlain family & I hope the they know he will never be forgotten. Godspeed my motor brother RIP

Policeman Chamberlain - A world war had just started and you were taken away from your family, friends, and co-workers on a Christmas Day...the fourth LAPD Officer killed, for that year, in traffic/motor collisions. Please keep watch over us, faithfully, and perhaps we'll meet up one day...if we're found worthy, that is.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 68th 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.
