What a sad story! And, it is especially sad knowing that with the proper laws in place, something like this never would have happened.
This is why we must make it mandatory that Flagmen are used throughout Mass, instead of these dangerous police details. It is much easier for Motorist to see a large bright orange flag that is being waved by a trained Flagman or Flagwoman, than it is for a Motorist to see a policeman or woman working the same scene.
I think that it is high time that we return to Flagmen and Flagwomen, and keep our Lawmen safe from these dangers. Our Officers are brave and without fear, but that is no reason to place them at an unnecessary risk.

Hey! Now there's a job for the illegal immigrants. Give them black suits with white lines down the middle and let them direct traffic.
I put my flag to half mast for Michael and raised it right back after the funeral so nobody would mistake that it was lowered for Kennedy.
