I was only a rookie the night you were shot. I have never forgotten you. You were a very, very good officer and I appreciate the couple times I got to "fill in with you" on 12 Patrol. It was a special ride on a busy district with a special officer. Rest in peace and I will see you again.

Time goes by so fast ! I left a comment in 2009 ! It seems like yesterday ! Just like the murder of Officer Miscannon ! I was a Detective on the TPD Vice Squad way back then and still remember the sorrow and disbelief of his killing !

It seems like it is getting worse now and the bad guys have more guns and opportunity to harm law enforcement !

Pray for your Police, Military and Intelligence heroes ! What is wrong with our politicos, defending bad people and not Police !

Oh well, better get off the stump ! God Bless the men and women in the Arena !

I was the last man to talk to Bill the night he was murdered, we had a conversation that fateful evening as where to park and what to watch out for. he was working a wagon .with hiS partner and I was working a 580 car. after talking to him and sending him on his WAY he was dead in five minute,from the last words that we spoke. I instinctively called it in as to what happened. and went to the scene. Not a day goes by that i do not think of BILL. I MISS MY BROTHER.

Dad,
It's been 43 years today that your life was taken from you and justice has yet to be served. I truly believe there is no such thing as justice......justice delayed is justiced denied. I wish I knew what to do/what I could do to right this wrong. I've done all that I can do for now and it's just not enough. I hope you know how much I honor you by all the volunteer work I do in your name and keeping your name out in the public. Maybe some day, but doubtful. Wish you here......................

41 years ago today when you were taken from us, it was a rainy friday. mom said the rain was the angels crying because you were taken from us. i just came back from the police memorial garden and the cemetery. laid the red, white and blue flowers down at both sites and shed a few tears. i have so many questions that will never get answered and there is no such thing as justice for you or for those you left behind. i do so much to honor you, those before you and after you. it means so much for me to be involved....lest we forget. love ya dad......

Your heroism and service is honored today, the fortieth anniversary year 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.

Reading the reflections left by your devoted daughter has left me with tears streaming down my face. Death ends a life, but not a relationship as is so evident in her bond with you. Today I pray for solace of all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.
Rest In Peace

it's 1:23 a.m. as i write this dad. forty years ago at this time, you were dead. killed by a coward who has yet to be convicted for such a senseless crime. i still grieve for you and will do so until the day we meet in heaven. and as always.......
forty years ago today, this dedicated man reported for duty to protect and serve family, friends, people and the city he loved. not knowing what that early friday morning held, he responded where duty called. the tragic events that unfolded that morning will never be known. three young children lost a father and the city one of it's own. lest we forget. "dance with my father."

The truth behind the tragic events that unfolded that morning will never be known. Three young children lost a father and the city, one of it's own. Lest We Forget.......

Hi Dad,
I worked for the Fallen Heroes Ride this year and it's my second year for Keith's Memorial Ride. This year, all the proceeds from Keith's ride go to the scholarship in your name in Keith's memory at Owens. I hope you and Keith have become good friends as I have with the Dressel family. They're such a wonderful family to know. I always get teary eyed at such events and gatherings. I usually hear a few stories of you and appreciate every thing I learn as I was only 10 when you were taken from us.
You'd be so proud of Jared.....he graduated with his bachelor's (in three years) in criminal justice and will start at the Houston Police Academy in August. He's following in your footsteps...I'm so proud of the work he's done to honor you. He's getting married next Saturday and I'll be in Houston for his wedding. He picked the same day as Keith's ride to get married...the stinker! = )

To those of you who leave reflections on dad's page, I thank you for your time and concern. I check in frequently and your words are appreciated.

One of these days..........

The last time I wore a Uniform of the Toledo PD was for the march to the resting place for Officer Miscannon. I still remember his badge number, not my own. I remember how the idoits fire bombed the funeral home and wrote "Die Pigs" on the window. I will never forget. Roger Browning
