A personal message from Larry Lawton wishing all Mom’s a Happy Mother’s Day
I would like to wish all the mothers out there a Happy Mother’s Day. This is YOUR day. Without you, we all wouldn’t be here.
Please think about all the people out there who lost their Mom’s to illness, old age, victims of crime, etc. Say an extra prayer for them.
If you will be with your Mom today, give her a big hug and count your blessings that you still have her. If she is gone, think of all the positive memories and great advice she gave you. The unconditional love of a Mom is so powerful.
Mom’s are so special. God has a special place for Mom’s.
Larry Lawton, Founder and President of Lawton911 and the Reality Check Program DVD on why chain gangs are wrong.
The Florida Today on May 2, 2013 wrote an article written by Andrew Ford on Brevard County chain gangs. “Sheriff Ivey stated that the chain gangs is an anti-crime campaign.

Larry Lawton comments on a disturbing story – Port’s Police Department Sergeant King uses Trayvon Martin Targets – Dana Loyd
Larry Lawton, the Founder and President of Lawton911, the Reality Check Program and author of Gangster Redemption comments on a disturbing story of a police officer using Trayvon Martin targets, YES! You read that right.
Dana Loyd chief editor of Brevard’s Best News broke this story early Thursday morning.
The article you are about to read by Dana Loyd from Brevard’s Best News (with emails from the Port Communications Director), is disgusting and reprehensible; now add that the person who did this is a law enforcement officer with over 20 years experience.
As a man who works with teens and young adults all over the country, this is a story that will make you shake your head. Every law enforcement officer I speak to is disgusted by it. Community relations took a real hit with this.
As a man who respects good cops and good senior law enforcement officials, this hurts everyone. Brevard county Florida has a reputation as Read More »
