Reflections for Private Wesley Cherry

Wesley Cherry was my great-grandfather. He served for the Confederacy in the Civil War and was wounded at Antietam and the Battle of the Wilderness. It is a shame that there is no marker for his grave.

Pvt. Cherry,
On today, the 145th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you to you and your fellow Policemen who were also killed in that incident for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of the state of Texas. And like some of the people who left reflections here before me I too think it was a travesty of justice that your murderers escaped justice.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 136th 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 who was murdered in the 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. What an absolute travesty of justice occurred in this prosecution of the persons responsible for the death of four state police officers. Thankfully, God is the final arbitrer of justice.

Rest In Peace.

This is a tragic event and your actions will never be forgotten. May your assailants and the jury that acquitted them find true misery and pain for an eternity.
