Your heroism and service is honored today, the 88th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service to my home state. 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.

I was dismayed that your murderer was paroled only ten years after he killed you. What an awful travesty of justice and revictimization of your family.

Rest In Peace

Sgt. Hardenbrook,
On today, the 86th anniversary of your death, I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Fresno. It sickens me to think that your murderer only served 9 years in prison-he should've gotten life at the minimum.

Your Department has not forgotten you.
