I have never seen so many cops in my entire life!! I got stuck in traffic heading west on Metro in Troy at about 1:30pm this afternoon when they came by going east. There were officers from all over the state. I lost count of the number of different squad cars, but I do remember one from Holland, and also the St.Clair County Sherriffs car. All the local forces with multiple vehicles. The U.S Border Patrol sent a car. Security vehicles from the U Detroit Mercy and Oakland U were there. In total 100s and 100s of them! On bikes, in cars. Even an occasional ambulance/rescue type vehicle was there. We guessed that those were from small towns with no local police or sherriff. Fire trucks blocked local intersections. The firemen all stood in a line hands clasped behind their backs. It took several minutes for the procession to drive by. Long enough that people got out of their cars, people came out of buildings, and they all just stood and watched this huge assembly of law enforcement people.
Truly a spectacle.
How much you wanna bet that they will catch the guy who killed that cop?

I know here in troy, we blocked all the intersections with fire trucks, some one call out the the orders and we salute the herse carring the decesed and then stand still at attention spaced evenly till the procession is over. its always so sad looking at the faces of the family.

20 minutes.......you deserved it. Sorry man.
I thought this was about the Sterling Heights Cop that lost his life. What a shame that we can't all have sympathy for the cop and forget about the seadoo crap, huh.
What a sight that picture is. Very sorry to see what these guys had to go through.
