Your heroism and service is honored today, the 104th 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.

Rest In Peace

Patrolman Emerson, it’s hard to believe that you were in all likelihood murdered over hay. How low some people are astonishes me sometimes. Thank you for your efforts on behalf of the people of Methuen and the Commonwealth as a whole. Where ever your killers ended up, I hope they faced true justice.

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

MY BROTHER, ALTHOUGH IT HAS BEEN 98 YEARS SINCE YOUR MURDER, YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN. A HERO IS NEVER FORGOTTEN. I FEEL SURE THAT YOUR KILLER WILL ONE DAY HAVE TO ACCOUNT FOR THE HORRLE CRIMES THAT HE COMMITTED. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND MAY YOU REST IN PEACE. YOU HAVE SERVED WELL.
