Reflections for Officer John Walter Clements

Of course he was pardoned the Governor, because politicians were every bit as crooked and evil back then as they are now. Officer Clements, thank you for your service and today we take the time to remind you and your family that your sacrifice will never, ever be forgotten by your LE brethren. Rest in peace always.

Rest in Peace Police Officer John Walter Clements. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice.

I Pray for Peace for your Family, Friends and Co-Workers. I also Pray that the hounds of hell forever gnaw on the soul of your murderer. May his screams of anguish rise up from the grave as he is consumed in the lake of fire.

Your heroism and name on the wall of the Austin, Texas memorial on the State Capital grounds lives on. Your service to your country continued on in your son's military career and is reflected in the naming of the Memorial Garden of AMVET's Post #115 in Kyle, Texas. Your grandson's military service in Vietnam is at last recognized by the Vietnam Memorial on the grounds of the State Capital in Austin, Texas, not far from where your own Memorial Wall stands. The memory of those who stand and answer the call to duty will never be forgotten. God bless your spirit and courage which continues to beat in the heart of those who came after.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 82nd anniversary year of your death. I am priviliged to be among the first to leave a tribute to you. 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.
