How was he a hero?He got hit by a car. He was a virtuous individual who deserves our complete respect and admiration. His family should be taken care of 100 percent and he should be given a full state burial. But he is not a hero.The term hero is used far too loosely. Audie Murphy is a hero, Martin Luther King is a hero. This police officer who died should be known as a champion of justice, not a hero.

Unbelievable how some individuals choose to open the hole between their nose and chin BEFORE they think about how hurtful their words can be to the friends and family of this fallen officer. Officer Durman WAS a hero. Every day a police officer, a fireman, a soldier, or any other person 'serving the public' puts on their uniform and then put their well being on the line to protect others (even those such as TRT, with their unkind words and warped opinions) then YES...THEY ARE a HERO. God Bless Officer Durman and his family and friends. TRT should really think about what they are typing on here...before they start hitting the keys!!!!!

How can you say a police officer who gave the ultimate sacrifice for his community is not a hero. It doesn't matter what kind of call he was responding to. The point is Officer Durman served and protected the citizens of Lexington. Officer Durman took an oath like every other police officer does, knowing the danger but still put the uniform on daily for his community. I think it is very disrespectful that you have the nerve to post a comment like yours online. All emergency personnel are heroes. You need to show respect tomorrow to Officer Durman and his family.

Its unfortunate that people exist in our world that are ignorant in the manner that the person claiming that Officer Durman was not a hero is. This is a person who will undoubtly claim to be educated, who will undoubtly claim to be knowledgable of the world but is clearly a fool at the highest level.

Martin Luther King paid the ultimate sacrifice for what he was fighting for. Officer Durman did the same, arguing that is ridiculous. To say that MLK is a hero and Officer Durman isn't is pure lunacy.

To this idiotic poster, please remember that when you are in trouble and are running for safety. Police officers like Officer Durman are running into the fire to save you and your community.

We lost another hero this week, lets honor his memory and appreciate the service that he has given his community. Our prayers are with his family, the Lexington Police Department and the citizens of Lexington.

Stay strong officers, we are all still behind you and grateful for everything that you do.

A Jailor here died about 15 years ago who was a friend of me and my ex husbands. His funeral was not as large as this cops but there were over 820 people who attended ( the funeral homes estimate not mine). There were so many people at White Hall Funeral ome they had to put speakers outside for people to hear it because they did not have enough room for everyone to see the funeral. He is burried in Jessamine Co I think it was. So I know this funeral procession was a VERY long one for this police officer. I do not know about anyone else but the cops I seen were pulled off on the sidewalks on Man O War and I went to and from work that day and I did not have that much difficulty because of it.

Wow I am sure you have been there and spent time there? I am sure you know someone from there you hate so this is why you say this, or you are saying this mainly I think because you have something against me, though I can not fathom a thought of why you would seeing as we do not know each other.
It is not much different than Cyothiana, both small. Try visiting there for a while and you will see how beautiful it really is. I have lived in Lexington for about 23 or 24 years or so,( I was born on Scott Airforce Base in Illinois till I was 6 weeks old and raised in Menifee and lived there till I was 19 or so) I hate the city but I live here so I can be able to work. Means and Frenchburg ( both in Menifee Co.) are small like Cynthiana and have no job oppurtunities. Good luck in finding the right state, county or town for you that you love.

Not really, you hear of the police brutality on the news because face it the general public loves drama and buys into it especially when the news sensationalizes a case to be worse that it was so the tv news programs get more viewers, hence more money.(But yes I agree it happens that sometimes cops bully people)Of course you also probably like me have family members who break the law and get caught and try to blame it on the cops when they get arrested, knowing damn good and well they were breaking the law when getting caught.But they will swear up an ddown that that 25 pot plants in their back yard grew wild lol or that the breathalizer test was broken and gave a bad reading or that the radar gun did not work right .
