This is a dead Police Officer who died protecting people. No more or less the hero than the soldiers. Please don't showcase you ignorance and cynicism.

Being that this man was a public employee, I'm suprised Walker didn't make his family pay for the flags to be lowered.

This Gausmann character sounds like a complete moron. Obviously looking for any excuse he can find to vent against the governor. Sad case.
