Reflections for Policeman James C. Costello

My grandfather was Mack C. Toner & was a LAPD policeman from 10/1/24 to 12/5/44. He was probably in the academy with policeman Costello as they both showed a 10/1/24 start date. Unfortunately my grandfather passed before I was born & I never got to ask him about his years of service. I want the Costello family to remember that policeman Costello will never be forgotten & was a true American hero. RIP my brother in blue.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 79th 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. Rest In Peace.

I am sorry that you and your family did not receive justice in this world for your brutal murder.
