To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. I am privileged to pay tribute to you. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 29th anniversary year 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 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.

I pray for solace for all those that love and remember you for I know that both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace. Rest In Peace.

Im here in Afghanistan,(BAF)with some down time between pre-flight/post-flight checks. I often think of those who gave all (serving our communities and abroad serving our country). Im actually working side by side with a current US Capitol Police Officer while here. We have shared stories of Chris(his service) and his loving family.
Chris, God bless you for your service and sacrifice and may he continue to watch over your family!
You will never be forgotten!!!!

Thinking about your beautiful family today as we share memories of a father and husband. Without your family reaching out to mine 16 years ago I would not be the survivor I am today. Thank you Vivian!

On the 24h anniversary of Sergeant Eney’s death, we honored his service during roll call by reading his entry from ODMP. Each day, we honor one fallen officer on the anniversary of their death so as to keep them in our thoughts, and also to remind us of the dangers inherent in our job.

Sergeant Eney may be gone, but is not forgotten.

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

I remember when my parents purchased the house from his wife in 1985. She looked very hurt. I was only 6, but I remember she did not clean out the out basement and I used to find all his old stuff (flags) relating to Capital Police.


I used to live in the house he lived in

To the family of Sergeant Eney - I share your agony. I lost my husband 10 months ago, also in a SWAT training incident, and am left to raise two children on my own. This is an incredibly painful journey that none of us wanted to take.

Mrs. Cross, I received your letter a few months after Jesse died and I wanted you to know how very much your words of support have meant to me. I've read it countless times, as have a few of Jesse's closest friends. Some days were so difficult to continue on without him; some nights were so very dark and cold....I wasn't sure if I could find the strength and courage to do this. I can't tell you how much it helped me to know that your family traveled this path and that you survived. It gives me hope that we will, too.

I wanted to let you know that your wonderful Chris isn't forgotten, nor is the sacrifice he made.

Thank you, Sergeant Eney, for your service and ultimate sacrifice. May God bless you and may you rest in peace, Blue Angel.

The citizens of the United States are thankful for your service in our behalf. The way you died was tragic and sad, but cops die in bizare ways all the time. It doesn't make the loss any easier to take, or forget, no matter how far in the past it may be.

You were taken from this world doing the job, and for that, you are a hero. PERIOD.

You are now watching over your family and friends from Heaven. Keep up the good work, but Rest in Peace.
