One Thousand Mourners Attend Memorial for Slain California Police Officer

Ronil Singh

Residents of the small rural community of Newman in California packed the town plaza for a memorial for killed police officer Ronil Singh Friday night, reports the Sacramento Bee.

Many brought with them a heavy heart and fond memories of the father of a five-month-old child.

“About 4 month ago, our daughter committed suicide and your husband was the first one at out home… I know how hard it was for him to get through what he had to see and I don’t think if it was for him we wouldn’t gotten through that time,” said Tracey Taylor.

“We are saddened, grief, some anger, for the senseless killing of our wonderful friend, protector, family member,” said Casey Graham, a Newman city council member and police officer in Modesto.

Blue ribbons and blue lights can be seen around Newman as a tribute to the Fiji native. Many are also wearing sweaters with the enforcement flag on it.
