White House goes blue to honor nation's police officers

Obama had flags flown at half-mast for police, the paper reported, but didn't shine the blue light on the White House. The action also implored the department to recommend new mandatory minimum for crimes against law enforcement.
"You are the thin blue line between civilisation and chaos", he told law enforcement officers gathered outside the US Capitol for the memorial service.
The memorial is due to be built at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire and will bear the names of more than 1,400 officers killed in the line of duty. "We are forever in their debt and always grateful to them".
"I pray that I never have to attend the funeral of one of our deputies or one of our law enforcement professionals in our community", Racine County Sheriff Christopher Schmaling said.
"128 law enforcement officers have died in the line of duty since 1878 just before Montana became a state", he said.
Officer Scherlen was also remembered with placement on the peace officer's memorial wall. According to the Officer Down Memorial Page, www.odmp.org, the number of line-of-duty deaths for the year tallied 144. "My thoughts and prayers go out to the loved ones of the officer killed today".
Lincoln County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Roland Kramer says the ceremony has been a part of North Platte for more than 20 years.
We honor the memory of our heroic fallen in tributes like these across the nation this week. Sheriff Jerome Kramer said that members of law enforcement don't make plans for the future, because a future is uncertain.
"The law enforcement officers who protect this great state, and the families who stand by their side, deserve our deepest respect", said Governor Abbott.
You might assume that, back in 1962, law enforcement was a less lethal career. "You leave your family to protect someone else's family and you don't even know them, so if you think about it it takes really special people to do that kind of work".
