I just read your comments about your beloved father and grandfather and uncle being denied admission into the Fraternal Order of Police because he was black. I hope by now that your efforts to rectify that have succeeded and that he has been accorded every honor he deserves.

Never forgotten. Always honored.

Officer Johnson. Thanks for serving your city and your state. It sounds like you were a great father as well. I for one find it hard to believe that you were not allowed to join the FOP but thankfully times have changed. In my book you were just as good as any one who wore the badge and I'm proud to count you as one of us.

Thanks Latrina(niece) for your wonderful comments and honoring my father. Love you, your uncle Andre.
My father was a wonderful man and father. May he one day receive the honor he deserve.

This was my grandfather. Although I never knew him and my father really didn't know him because he was 4 yrs. old when he was killed, I love him and miss him. I am going to make sure the city of New Orleans remember him. He was not allowed to join the Fraternal Order of Police because he was black, but I am going to fix that. The family also never received any acknowledgements or regrets from the city.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 58th anniversary year of your death. I am priviliged to be among the first to leave a tribute to you. 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 Peace.
