Your heroism and service is honored today, the 93rd 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.

Time never dimishes respect and your memory will always be honored and revered.

Patrolman Deininger,
On today, the 89th anniversary of your murder, I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Boston. That your murderer was only sentenced to 20 years is a travesty of justice.

Patrolman Deininger, today marks the 88th year since your murder. You gave your life in the service of others but it is that service during you life that truly earns you the title of hero. It’s sad that not all of your killers received the justice they so deserved and worse yet, those that did, escaped to frolic in freedom, even if only for a short time. You never got that chance again. Thank you for your efforts on behalf of the citizens of the Commonwealth and the City of Boston in particular.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.
