Reflections for Police Officer John J. McGrath

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 90th 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

Officer McGrath,
On today, the 87th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your community,but also for our Country when you served in the U.S. Army. I think it was a travesty of justice that your murderers didn't face the justice that they deserved.

1921 was a very long time ago but I know there are those who have not forgotten you. I pray justice was, in some way served, to those two young men who ended your life. Thank you for your service.
