                                Honouring the Fallen Officers of June 4 2014 by Lady1Venus Rest In Peace

         as you all know, last wed, June 4th..3 R.C.M.P (Royal Canadian mounted Police) from Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada was shot and killed and 2 other R.C.M.P officers was shot and injured by a good for nothing piece of shit. A portion of Moncton was on lockdown for 30 hours when the police were able to arrest him on june 6th...this asshole has been charged with 3 counts of first degree murder and 2  counts of attempted murder...hope he gets whats coming to him!!!

         Today was the 3 fallen heroes funeral, I was able to watch the whole thing on t.v..it was so heartbreaking, I still have tears in my eyes. I live about 3 hours away from Moncton but I have been there many times..and I can say..its a beautiful city and people are really friendly. I have heard on the news that people of Moncton was even willing to let police officers  stay in their homes instead of a hotel..this is the way the people of New Brunswick are. There was over 7000 police officers in attendance..from all over Canada, the U.S and Australia and England!!

   my condolences goes out to these brave men's wives, their children and of course their family and friends.

:heart:R.I.P our fallen heroes!! :heart:

  a special thank you to my friend Dawn :iconlady1venus: for letting me use this beautiful tribute picture she made.

R.I.P.

this is a terrible story, but the fact that people go and thank the policemen for their work is truly heart-warming...

I still have tears in my eyes, too... mind you.. when you're married to a cop, this kind of things gives you rather a lot to think about...

it really is a terrible and heartbreaking story...a friend of mine Dawn :iconlady1venus: made a short video when she went to her local R.C.M.P department..this is the police station in Moncton and people have left all kinds of flowers, cherubs, candles and even a police teddy bear..the police officers who worked with the 3 that died are all on leave so they can grieve (never heard of a police force doing this before) for 2 weeks. they brought in 200 officers to cover them..

I can not imagine what goes through a wife of a police officer's head when such a tragedy occurs...my heart goes out to all of them!!

I think it's really good they allowed them to have days off for that... I'm sure it'll help them heal...

I hope so..on father's day, people of Moncton had some kind of charity walk for the families of the 3 fallen officers..i don't know how much they raised..and when anyone walked by a R.C.M.P officer they stopped ad shook hands and gave them a hug!! its so heartwarming.

thanks Sandy!! :tighthug:sssss

I heard on the news that they are going to bring in 200 police officers to the Codiac R.C.M.P, so the officers that worked with the 3 that died can have 2 weeks off to grieve...I have never heard of anything like this before!

I do too!!!

its been an emotional time for all new brunswickers I think, I still get emotional and I didn't even know them. I just feel bad for the kids and their wives.
one of the officers was a k-9, and you could hear his partner Danny whimpering during the whole funeral..it was so heartbreaking. I heard on the news that usually after an officer is killed that the dog retires too, but his wife told them that that's not what her husband would of wanted..so they are looking for another partner for him..so sad! :(

The Brother and Sisterhood of Law Enforcement agencies can be staggering.  I'm glad there was a huge send off--I know that sounds celebratory and I don't mean it that way, but I would imagine if those three were alive and it was three others in their place they would travel almost any distance to pay their respects.

R.I.P. :salute:

BlueIvyViolet Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
yes I did..everyone wore red because that's the R.C.M.P colors...I watched the whole funeral and it was just heartbreaking. there was even police officers from the U.S!
 can you believe that over 800 people in Moncton was willing to give police officers a place to stay so they wouldn't have to go to a hotel?
