I met your son today. I doubt that there is a day he does not think about you even after all these years.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 36th 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 and your memory will always be honored and revered.

I pray for the solace of all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace, I thank them for sharing their devotion to you by their loving reflections.

I too never knew this was here....Carl, I think of you and Thor to this day. You were a class act and I am grateful for the time I did know you.
To your daughter (I won't say your name) the last time I saw you was at the heart went out to you then but I am glad that you can see to this day how your father was respected and loved.

My God, Carl. I didn't know. We were young GIs together, back in the day. Sail on, my friend. Sail on.

I didn't realize this page was here. How incredible it is for me to know that after so many years my dad's memory is still alive. Thank you to everyone involved in the making of this page and to all those who continue to remember. I also want to thank the Connecticut State Police for making sure I was able to attend the 100th Anniversay Party. It is a memory I will always cherish.

I thank you trooper Moller for assisting my cousin, Russell Richards that fateful day when you both were struck and killed by an intoxicated truck driver. It remains extremely devastating to our family to this day. God Bless you and Russell.

Trooper Moller,
On today, the 33rd anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of the state of Connecticut. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.
