Tatum Raetz graduated from kindergarten this week, just three days after her police officer father was killed while investigating a drunk driving case.
But the 5-year-old girl definitely felt her father’s presence at her ceremony, thanks to nearly 300 uniformed officers standing in his place at her Phoenix elementary school.
My dad is a police officer. This really hits home for me, makes me wonder why anyone can justify the blanket hatred of a group that is capable of doing so much for the community.
