Johnny, me and another friend shared a residence before he joined the Pine Bluff PD. He was a great friend, an honest man, and I was very saddened to hear of his death. RIP Johnny.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 27th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was murdered on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

I pray for solace for all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace. Thanks to your friends for sharing their memories and devotion to you through their reflections.

Rest In Peace

It has been 27 years since the night of March 4, 1984. I still think of Johnny often. I think of the times we had coffee together or went fishing. It was my honor to serve with him. He was an officer that his brothers could depend on. I was with Johnny just moments after suffered his wounds. Other officers, EMS personnel and myself worked quickly and aggressively to save his life. Thank you all for working so well together at that critical time. I am confident that Johnny would have done the same for any of us. He was just that kind of officer, loyal and courageous. I thank God I had the opportunity to be his brother officer. There is a bond between us all that will never be broken.

Though you passed before I was born, I've heard many things about you. You were a wonderful father, brother, and son. You were special to all who knew you. I know my father Ronnie misses you dearly, as well as Your mother and daughter.

I may have not known you personally, but I've learned about the person you were..And I will never forget you.


Your niece,

"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 have thought much of the sacrifice my Dad's partner, and my friend Johnny made that fateful night. Johnny gave the ultimate sacrifice, his life. Some might think it was forgotten. I was only 12 when Johnny died. He was like an uncle. The police family was family. I have never forgotten him. I also can't wait to see you in glory Johnny, to give you a hug and to tell you how much you were loved and how much your service meant. Johnny had a gentle spirit, eyes that sparkled with kindness, and he is greatly missed.

How many times have we three girls thought of you and the sacrifice you and in turn your family made twenty years ago. We are young ladies now and have children of our own. We have been so grateful for our Dad all these years and know it could have been him instead. I really hope I see you again one day in person to hug you and say thank you sir. No greater love has anyone than this, that a man lay down his life….

I grew up with Johnny and his brother Ronny, I spent the night at their house when we were kids. Is's hard to believe that twenty years has passed, I saw his daughter in church today, she's all grown up.
Goodnight old friend, I'll see you in the morning.
