I knew Christy and I used to stop and clean up around her memorial at the scene of her death, sometimes after work. I never knew the officer, Michael Patrina but while working in law enforcement I have known far to many officers lost giving their all. My condolences goes to the family and surviving officers of Metro Nashville Police Department.
