Facial Recognition

Ask The Expert

Roger Rodriguez

Thousands Attend Slain Utah Officer’s Funeral

On Wednesday, with several thousand fellow law enforcement officials in attendance, the Wride family and friends remembered their shy cowboy’s life during the Utah County Sheriff’s sergeant’s funeral. Wride, 44, of Benjamin, was killed while on duty last Thursday, reports the Salt Lake Tribune.

The father of five was described Wednesday as a hunter. A camper. A horseman and a rancher. But, most importantly, he was remembered as a husband, father, son, friend and law enforcement officer.

Wride worked for the sheriff’s office for 19 years in various departments, including patrol, SWAT, K9 and administration.

"Even the people that he arrested [and] took to jail, he treated with dignity and respect," Utah County Sheriff’s Sgt. Eldon Packer recalled during Wednesday’s service. "Cory wanted to be one of those who stood tall and did right."

IT SAD TO SEE HOW MANY OFFICERS ARE KILLED DOING THERE JOB IN THIS COUNTRY , IT IS TIME FOR THE GOVERMENT TO HELP LAW ENFORCEMENT INSTEAD OF PROTECTING THE CRIMINAL !

R.I.P. Brother Wride. May your family & L.E. members eventually find comfort within their inner souls. You stood tall, and gave the ultimate. Thank you so very much.
William, it's not the gov'ts position to do that it's the parent's, school's, and society's responsibility to do. When that's actually done it needs to be stressed to elected officials to support this structure. I have 3 sons, and one of them is wild. But to this day when he's approached by any L.E.O. he's respectful. Why, because I'm his Dad who wore a uniform around him for his entire life. I always instilled regardless of what you do you respect authority, and people.
