Funerals set to begin for police officers slain in Dallas

While we do not know who he is, this officer's humble message of reconciliation for our city needs to be heard by all.

Smith was an Army Ranger before he joined the Dallas Police in 1989.

Obama has devoted much of the week to the matter of violence by police officers and against police officers.

Thousands crammed into The Potter's House church in Dallas for Thompson's service on Wednesday.

And there's Sandra Bland, who was found dead in police custody in 2015 after a routine traffic stop - she left a 9-year-old nephew behind who now needs to sleep in the same room with his mother to try to feel safe.

A large US flag hung from the ladders of two fire trucks as hundreds of mourners gathered for the funeral of Michael Krol (KROLE), a MI native who moved to Dallas to become a police officer. John Hepworth, the acting choir director, said of the multiple funerals. "His enthusiasm for the job drove him to excel". He leaves behind a wife, Heidi, and two young daughters.

The funeral began at 11 a.m. and will end with an honor guard ceremony.

"It's the right thing to do to go and show support", said Officer Tony D'Andrea of SPD.

He had a big booming voice and a love for rock 'n roll, friends said. "You were his best friend. Then later the situation was calmed down the big smile and the laughter would come out", Coffey said. "There were signs saying, "We love you, Blue" and God bless you, Sgt. Smith.' Just everything you could think of". "Sam Eichenwald for NewsweekA father carries his daughter to the edge of the blockade in downtown Dallas, near Bank of America Plaza, while police investigate the crime scene". She said that they asked whether her son "hates cops" or whether he "ever talked about killing cops". "He wanted them to be strong happy intelligent and well rounded young women".

"That's how many people were at the funeral", Rhoads said. He would volunteer at his church and work with at-risk kids at the YMCA. "He was taken so senselessly, violently, unjustly". And to that I'd say if he was affiliated with white supremacy as he appears to be, his name was never good in the first place. "It took some time to process everything and try to understand why", Emily told the mourners adding, "I can't". Because no little girl should have to fight back tears while she recounts the last conversation she had with her dad before he was murdered in an American street. "His selfless legacy will live on".

Onlookers paused to pay their respects to Lorne Ahrens of the Dallas Police Department and Brent Thompson, an officer with Dallas Area Rapid Transit, as public funeral processions snaked along area roads.

A funeral service for Ahrens, 48, was held on Wednesday at the Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, Texas. She and Thompson had recently married.
