I was just a young boy when your death happened. Though we had never met, your brothers were close with my parents. I remember seeing the hurt and shock your death caused in Pittsburgh. I talked about you to my FLETC class when I presented for my Officer Down day 14 years later. I hope I carry on your spirit in my current work as a LEO.

I remember that day and it filled my whole unit with horror, shock and sadness. We knew several of those killed. Law Enforcement lost some great people that day. Blessed be the thin blue line and those who stand in it.

Martha, I cannot believe you were called home 25 years ago. I will NEVER forget that horrible day and I will never ever forget you! I'm the last of C-21 that is still at the Bu, everyone else has retired. You are truly missed, my friend! Always in my heart.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 15th 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.

I had not heard of this tragic and horrific event until today. I pray for the solace of all those who love and miss you. The hurt of losing a beloved never goes away, but both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace

Phyllis Loya
mother of fallen officer Larry Lasater

Well Martha, another year has come and gone and it seems as though your memory never fades. I was in my first year with our unit when we received news of your death as well as Hank's and John's. It was a day I will never forget. I watched grown men brought to their knees while the most compassionate of people consoled them. It made me realize that I was part of something bigger than I knew. I became part of a police family that day. Each year during this week I take time out to reflect and honor all fallen heroes, but particularly you, John and Hank. May you rest in peace and know you did not die in vain. Until we meet again......

"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.
