Thousands of students and law enforcement officers from across the country have packed the Massachusetts Institute of Technology campus to honor fallen MIT Police Officer Sean Collier who was remembered as a joy-filled, caring and compassionate man who believed kindness could change society.
MIT set aside 15,000 seats at Briggs Field and every one was filled, with law enforcement officers making up two-thirds of the heartbroken audience.
Collier, 26, of Somerville, was killed in the line of duty last Thursday as authorities closed in on Boston Marathon bombing suspects and brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in Cambridge.

RIP Officer Collier! Strange some LEO's make it thru their entire career w/o even drawing their weapon. I wonder how many more LEO's and civilians will be murdered before this Government and the people of this great country finally wake up and realize that its time to close the borders and round up these potential killers. I could give a rats a** about cultural diversity, religion or World Order BS from past and present politicians. What happened to United in United States of America?
