Last week a Colorado Springs police officer was killed in the line of duty. It has been some 20+ years since a officer in the Springs has been killed.
Yesterday the city pay tribute to him. The funeral precession traveled some 10 miles from a church at the North end of the city to the police operations center South of down town. Over 1200 vehicles took part. To give you an idea of how long it was, by the time the lead vehicle arrived at the ops center. It was some 30 min before the last vehicle left the church.
All along the route citizens payed their respect to the fallen officer. Given how people view the police as more of an advisory, than the good guys. I was awestruck by the turn out of support. It is times like this I think there may still be hope for humanity.
I should also point out officers came from not only all over the state of CO but, other states as well.
