Fellow officers and officials ranging from local police departments and fire departments, to the Director of the FBI and officers from across the world gather to now protect you and your families that you leave behind. A procession of 3,000 emergency service vehicles, and the streets are all lined with people, paying their respects. 20,000 officers, twice as many officers as expected, have come and more are on their way. Not a word is spoken on this unusually cold December morning, yet despite the cold thousands of citizens wait to say to goodbye you.
You have brought us all together, not just a community, but a nation, and with this, you have brought change. Laws being amended, created, in hopes of preventing this incredible tragedy from happening again and even in death, you manage to protect us.
Our hearts are with you and your family Sgt. Mark Renninger, Officer Tina Griswold, Officer Ronald Owens, and Officer Greg Richards. Rest in peace knowing that your duty is done and we, a community, and a nation, will follow in your footsteps.
