Respect

Posted in The Job - General by 200

Back in November I posted about the shocking case of four Lakewood, Washington Police Officers who were gunned down as they prepared to start their duty.

With reference to yesterday’s post about the funeral of an American police officer, I was contacted by a retired Candian cop (Thanks, Art) who pointed me in the direction of some footage of the funeral service for those 4 Lakewood officers.

Yesterday’s post was entitled ‘It takes 7 minutes’ & was in relation to the length of time it took for all the vehicles in the funeral procession to pass the camera. Art tells me it took 3 hours for the 3,000 police vehicles to pass.  20,000 police officers from 275 cities attended, including 1,000 Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

I thought the event deserved a post on its own rather than remaining within the comments section of yesterday’s post.

You can see further footage here, here, here & here.
