To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 96th 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

My Grandmother was only two when you lost your life. Although, I never knew you I keep a photograph of you in uniform on my family photo wall. I am proud of your service.

To the Family of Officer diamond:
I wanted to offer my sympathies on your senseless murder. You were and will always be a true hero, whose bravery and courage will be forever remembered by your family, community and fellow officers. I looked on the ODMP and noticed just one reflection. Almost 93 years have passed since you were killed in the line of duty and it's somewhat baffling only one reflection was left. My dad was one of NYPDs finest for almost 40 years in the 102 precinct and I can remember him taking me and my sister to see the police horses. Rest in peace officer Diamond. Olav Hasshalom.
