Reflections for Correctional Officer George Landry

Correctional Officer Landry, it has been 82 years since you were taken from us. New England law enforcement has continued to thrive, learn and become safer due to the traditions and sacrifices you, your family, and many others have made for us. Thank you for your 18 years of corrections service.

Officer Landry,
On today, the 80th anniversary of your death, I would just like to say thank you to you and your fellow Corrections Officers who were also killed in that incident for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of the state of Massachusetts. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. It’s nice to know that back then Massachusetts knew how to deal with Cop killers.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 70th 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.

Time never dimishes respect, and your memory will always be honored and revered

Officer Landry,
On today the 66th anniversary of your murder, I would like to say thank you to you and your fellow COs for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. As a former resident of Massachusetts, it's good to know that at one time, Massachusetts knew how to take care of murderers.

Officer Landry, sixty-six years ago today, a terrible incident happened to you and two of your brother Corrections Officers. It gained your murderers nothing but the death penalty but it took you three away from family and friends on a date, which is normally associated with celebration. It is as tragic today as it was then. I know in my heart that none of you ever truly left those who survived you.

I understand what a difficult job Corrections Officers have and I thank you for your service to the Commonwealth. You truly are a hero.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother
