Reflections for Patrolman Warren Mitchell

Rest in peace Officer Mitchell. You served El Paso and the State of Texas with noble honor and humility. A crying shame the person who killed you was paroled.

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.
God Bless

Serving with Officer Mitchell on that day was Officer Mario M. Cicchetti, who went on to serve with the El Paso PD until he retired in 1975. I worked with Officer Cicchetti during the early 1970's and soon realized that he was a victim of this incident as well. Mario never quite got over the trauma of witnessing Mitchell's murder and being pinned down by gunfire for nearly an hour. We sometimes forget all the other victims. Mario passed away nearly 20 years ago himself and I miss him dearly.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 59th 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 line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

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

Rest In Peace.

Officer, Mitchell: I was only six years old when I attended your funeral with my father and mother. Your father had an office in the Capels building next to my dad who was an attorney. I was always facinated with your story and once wrote an article about you entitled "The man in the casket" in the El Paso Police newspaper called : "The Silver Badge." You have been an inspiration to me since that night so many years ago. I do know that your father, "Red" Mitchell was always very proud of you!

You died a little more than a month before I was born. I hope some of your courage and spirit and the willingness to run toward the gunfire lives on in me.
Thank you.
