Editor's Note:

Mark Dunakin, John Hege, Ervin Romans, and Daniel Sakai were remembered today in a ceremony attended by too many people to fill just one sports arena. Not since four federal agents died 16 years ago during a raid on the Branch Davidian cult in Waco, Texas has there been a more deadly day in law enforcement. Not since September 11th has there been such an incredible outpouring of support for the brave officers who risk—and all too often give—their lives to protect their communities and this country.

In addition to some 19,000 law-enforcement officers who came from cities and towns across America, uniformed personnel from fire and EMS organizations from around the country joined countless civilians from all over California to solemnly give their respects. PoliceOne was there, and we stand in support of the friends and families of these fallen heroes, and with all of the men and women of law enforcement.

You can revisit our comprehensive coverage of this tragic event and view photos of the memorial service on PoliceOne's special slideshow.

Comment of the Week

"Very nice. Train like you fight and fight like you train. I would not hesitate to do this very thing. If I am justified in shooting a person, I can stab him if that means that I get to go home. Good job brother!"
