To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 126th 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 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 Pe

In response to the question, the statue is now at Police Headquarters. It was located at the Training Academy for about 30 years or so after moved in the early 70's from its orginal location when blown up by militants.

The officers killed have never received the attention of the protest leaders. The CPD will not forget these brave men.

I work near the Haymarket square area were the riot happen, I remember they had a statule of a Police Officer in the area, I don't know what happen to it. Can anyone tell me why they took down the memorial that was in that area and what happen to the statule. A memory reminder should never be taken away.

I stop by this website often after the death of two dear friends with the NCSHP (Troopers Calvin Taylor E.O.W. October 3, 2001 and Anthony Cogdill E.O.W. May 30, 2003). Unfortunately, I had to add the name of another friend recently. Deputy Jeffery Hewitt, Buncombe County (NC) Sheriff’s Department, E.O.W. April 4, 2004.

I want to honor all of those who gave their life in the line of duty. Although your death was many many years ago, you are still a hero.

God Bless the men and women who continue to serve their communities in our great Nation.

...Gone, but never Forgotten....
