Reflections for Sergeant Cashel L. Furgerson

His widow had to sue the city for her family's loss. She was awarded a financial settlement. I like to believe that this potential financial liability led to safer uniforms for officers all over.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 57th 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 diminishes respect, not even 57 years.

Rest In Peace
