Thousands Remember Slain Riverside Officer
February 13, 2013
Friends and family remembered Officer Michael Crain as a devoted father, loving husband, and tough cop at a Wednesday memorial service that drew thousands of well-wishers.
Crain, an 11-year veteran of the Riverside (Calif.) Police Department, was killed by fugitive ex-LAPD cop Chris Dorner early Thursday as he sat at a red light with another officer.
At a memorial service at Grove Community Church today, Riverside Chief Sergio Diaz said the officer's friends "miss him already," reports the Los Angeles Times.
Crain leaves behind a wife and two children.

Rest in peace dear brother and know that your mission on earth will be carried on by those of us still charged with protecting the public. Your mission now lies in the great beyond and may it be one of peace and tranquility.
