Reflections for Police Officer Jacob Kraus

Officer Kraus,
On today, the 100th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Rahway. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

The officer's verbal commands were enough at that time to prevent the MURDERS of these two men. It's hard to believe that even way back then liberal judges were plying their evil trade.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 91rst 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.

Rest In Peace.
