Mr. & Mrs. Mackin babysat my sister alice and myself, I was 7 years old. I can remember to this day Mr. Mackin sang the song Mona Lisa while he was shaving and to me he was so special. He had a beautiful voice and I have never forgotten him.
I can't believe how many years have passed

Officer Mackin,
On today, the 58th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you to you and your fellow CO who was also killed that day for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of the state of California. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. It took another six years, but your murderers finally got the justice that they deserved.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 58th 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, not even 58 years. I also worked as a correctional officer at S.Q. which has always been a tough prison to police.

Rest In Peace

No fellow California law enforcement personnel killed in the line-of-duty, should be forgotten.
