Your heroism some 94 years ago is almost unequalled. Despite being wounded you still pursued the bad guys which led to your ultimate sacrifice. Your actions that day should serve as a shining example for the professionalism of theCPD.

Your heroism and service is honored today on the 93rd 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 who was murdered in the the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer. He was shot twice when ambushed on April 23rd when he was on a foot pursuit of two bank robbers, 88 years after you were killed.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.

Officer Larsen-
I read through the narrative on the courageous last moments of your life. They were spent defending good against evil, and protecting the citizens of Chicago. In the face of danger, you didn't back down and you never gave up. On today's date, I remember you for your bravery, valor, unending courage, and dedication to duty.

Thanks for the tribute to the Grandfather I never got to know. I never got to go fishing with him or to listen to the kind of stories that Grandpas tell. He was murdered when my mother was five years old so she, in reality, didn't get to know him either. Criminals will always be around and so will policemen willing to lay their lives on the line in the name of the law.
