We will never forget the sacrifices made by our fallen officers. They were husbands, fathers, brothers, sons and friends. Willingly chose a life of public service and made a sacrifice for something they believed in. The lives they lived and the sacrifices they made were in the service of helping mankind. Their deaths were not only acts of heroism, but were acts of love.
Saying “our heroes will never be forgotten,” the Dallas Police Department released a moving tribute video to the members of its force who were killed and wounded by a black assassin driven by racial hatred.
Four Dallas police officers were killed, along with a Dallas Area Rapid Transit officer, and seven cops were wounded just over a week ago as a Black Lives Matter protest was coming to an end.
“On July 7, 2016, twelve officers were shot on duty by a sniper,” the video description begins. “Five of those officers died. Four were Dallas Police officers and one was a DART officer. Our heroes will never be forgotten.”
