Wait for it...some sheep headed dimwit will find some reason to spin this into a terrible waste of department dollars. May Officer Colemans family & friends be comforted knowing that all of us feel this loss.

Thank you Maricopa County for again being pioneers. In this day of PC overboard you helped a family who lost someone who helped all. RIP Officer. May this money be put to good use for the good guys...for once.
